In Part 1 of What You Should Know About Gum Disease, I read the endorsements from Stan Wint, Tame Adams, Ellie Phillips, John Corso and Hillary Yasmer Shemin, RDH, BSDH Marquette University Class of 1974, Holland, PA. They all received ‘advanced’ reading copies or ‘draft’ copies of the book and provided their blurbs in response. I am grateful to all of them for taking the time to read and comment. I do believe the information in this book can help a great deal of people in the world. This is for two reasons. 1. Dental professionals tell us that about 75% of people have gum disease right now. 2. They also tell us that gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss.
