Just a note to say thank you for the wonderful service you recently gave to my son after his unfortunate accident on the sporting field. He took such a terrible blow to his mouth that I feared his looks would never be the same again. His relieved mother says to me that his face is probably more handsome now than before the accident. Your artistry at rebuilding his mouth is truly amazing. My family now owes you two very large debts of gratitude, the other being your early and quick diagnosis of the leukoplakia within my dear mothers mouth. We are told your insistence in getting her to one of your brothers-in-medicine may have saved her life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the service you rendered to both.
Just the other night, my wife and I were babysitting our newest granddaughter. The three of us were bassing our teeth before bed. Our granddaughter told us about a history lesson at school. She was taught that a hundred years ago, most people lost all their teeth to some disease by the time they were sixty years of age. They even had pictures of what she said were called denchers, which were replacement teeth, to be put in the mouth and used to chew with. Imagine having false teeth in your head!
Then she was taught that dentists back then would cure some other disease by grinding a hole in a tooth, then placing some material in the void and calling it a "restoration". Forgive me, I do not recall the name of the disease, something like kaviddies. This disease would come back, and once again they would make a new hole in another tooth, or enlarge the area around the previous restoration, then do the process all over again. Ridiculous! What is wrong with schools nowadays, teaching such foolishness?
Our granddaughter went on, saying that there was a tiny handful of dentists who learned to preserve the teeth that nature gave their patients instead of doing those things. This group worked really hard to teach their patients the simple practice of preventing those dental diseases. In doing so, this would obviate the need for restorations and denchers.
I fear I have gone on much too long, wasting your time. Next fall, when we come to see you again, please tell us where these silly ideas came from.
Do you believe you can trust testimonials? Good. We have a quite a few. Like:
Dr. Patricia H, Atlanta: "Fell in love with this floss at a CE given by a periodontist".
Regina B., RDH, Dunedin FL: "I was first introduced to POH floss at the dental school for hygiene that I was attending back in 1976. I have been using for myself and recommending your POH floss to all of my many patients, hundreds of patients ever since!! Love Your Floss!!"
POH has been collecting patient comments since 2007. Here is a link to March 2014 patient's giving their "POH Story" They make for a fun read. Here is last months edition. CLiCK
