Oral Health = Whole Body Health? A Wednesday visit with Dr. Stewart

Dr. BJ Stewart, who has a family dental practice in Greeley, will be in with us Wednesday morning at 7 o’clock.  
In recent years a connection between oral health, periodontal disease in particular, and heart health, even whole body health, has been well documented, so our time with Dr. Stewart may very well have benefits beyond an encouraging word about quality dental care.  Of course we’ll ask how he decided to practice dentistry, about dental innovations here and on the horizon, his staff, and oral health recommendations, to name a few.
