  • As you mention in your book, changes in oral health can be indicative of larger health problems. What are some of the first red flags to look for regarding threats to oral health?
  • In your book you discuss how health trends such as teeth whitening, antibacterial products and the rise in daily medications can have adverse effects on oral and overall health. Can you discuss some ways to combat the negative effects of these trends?
  • What ultimately led you to the creation of your oral hygiene product line, Oral Essentials?
  • How does your Oral Essentials line work toward a healthy mouth in a way that typical mouthwashes do not?
  • What do you view as being the most pressing oral health concern affecting the global population today and what recommendations do you have?

His advancements in the emerging field and signature approach demonstrate how fixing flaws in the smile can restructure a patient’s face and make them look decades younger.

Dr. Maddahi’s second book, The Hidden Epidemic: Restoring Oral Health, One Smile at a Time, draws attention to the unexplored connections between oral health and whole body health. The Hidden Epidemic takes a big picture approach to how oral symptoms such as bad breath and bleeding gums can be signs of larger health issues, as well as how common oral health care mishaps can cause problems elsewhere in the body. Dr. Maddahi focuses on how many current health trends such as juicing, teeth-whitening and the rise in medications, are actually extremely harmful to oral health and can even spawn further damaging behavior, a concept he terms “The Hidden Epidemic." The book is filled with easy-to-read scientific research and case studies to illustrate these epidemics, and offers tips and tricks for readers to identify and address those common health concerns they might be experiencing.
