Dental Health and Wellness Boston is excited to announce Dr. Smith as the new dental expert to be featured on Healthy Body Project! Initially launched on Facebook, Healthy Body Project founder Bob Shehan offers readers the latest information on weight management through the glycemic index as well as every day healthy living and wellness tips.
Focusing on issues including battling pre-diabetes as well as type 1 and type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance and heart disease, the Healthy Body Project – Dental Health and Wellness Boston connection is a natural fit. For individuals suffering from diabetes, weight management and dietary habits are key for establishing a healthy daily life. Because diabetics are at a higher risk for developing periodontal disease than nondiabetics due to diminished saliva production and unbalanced blood sugar levels, which can complicate the control of the metabolism and blood sugar levels needed for diabetic care, Dr. Smith’s expertise will be a valuable addition to Bob’s own know-how on the glycemic index for diabetes management. Similar links exist between heart health and oral health.
With the development of a Healthy Body Project website, Bob has selected Dr. Smith as a primary contributor – we are looking forward to the site launch and this new partnership with Health Body Project for overall wellness and healthy teeth!
