Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Matt Laurich discuss the following:

  1. What is Periodontal Disease?

  5. What steps could be taken to prevent Periodontal Disease?

 

Tip: Do not neglect your oral health. We use our mouth to communicate, eat, and breath. Take care of it. Listen to professionals on how you can improve and maintain your teeth. Do not take for granted a healthy mouth, it will help you live a healthy life.

 

ABOUT DR. LAURICH: With my father being a dentist, and my mother a dental hygienist, not only did I learn about the importance of strong oral health from an early age, but I developed a passion for dentistry and how essential it is to a person’s overall health.

To me, dentistry is not just about fixing teeth. It’s about educating. It’s about improving health. And it’s about changing lives. Being able to provide those services to my community brings me immense joy and fulfillment, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. Each of my patients is important to me. Forming long-term relationships with them makes Laurich Dentistry feel more like a family than a dental office. Hearing about a person’s family, career, vacations, and life events is the best part of my job. I look forward to these exchanges and how they bring us together.
