Possessing an enthusiasm for patient education, Dr. Ford enjoys helping patients understand how our overall health can be tremendously impacted by the condition of our dental health. Research continues to reveal more about how conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and even some forms of cancer have direct links to oral health.
