The window to your health

Poor oral health has been linked to several general health chronic illnesses, including pneumonia, prostate cancer, stroke, heart disease, problem pregnancy, diabetes, and breast cancer.

Regular visits to your dentist can do more than keep your smile attractive – they can you’re your dentist a lot about your overall health, including whether or not you may be developing a disease like diabetes.

This is a significant time in dentistry and healthcare. Ignoring the clear connections between general and dental health will have detrimental effects on people. At Elite Dental of Staten Island, we have always been a patient-centered, science-based and ethically-driven practice. With medical research discovering more and more health connections, you as a patient need to find a healthcare provider that works towards the same goal and with the same mindset as you.
