Should dentists advise on diet and lifestyle choices?

A health foundation has suggested that dentists should offer diet and lifestyle advice to patients during routine checkups.

Key takeaways:

– Involving dentists in a country-wide mission to improve health could be extremely effective in reducing chronic conditions such as obesity and diabetes.

– Poor oral health is often present in those with obesity, high alcohol consumption and smokers.

– Dentists could issue advice on giving up smoking, reducing alcohol consumption and a healthy diet.

“Think-tanks said those sitting in the dentist’s chair were ‘perfectly placed’ to absorb tips about how to live more healthily.”
