You will appreciate how chronic diseases and dental diseases manifest. Dr. Danenberg provides various original study materials to market your practice, create an evidence-based in-office nutritional counseling program, and educate your patients with cutting-edge articles. You will learn about diet, lifestyle, and environmental triggers which all affect gut health. And gut health is critical for oral health and overall health and wellness.
