A health foods enthusiast was pursuing an interest in probiotic foods. He had started this a few years ago. His diet consisted of a lot of fermented products including kimchi, vinegars, and kombucha. He really enjoyed the health benefits, but he started to notice that his teeth were starting to be affected due to the active bacteria in so much of the food that he consumed daily. He called River Heights Dental Care for regular visits to a great SSP dental clinic, and was not disappointed by the wonderfully skilled and knowledgeable staff.
The patient arrived at the River Heights Dental Care, and our friendly staff escorted him to a room where we x-rayed his teeth. Dr. Ben Christopherson looked over the x-rays, then checked out his teeth. Dr. Christopherson let the patient know that he could maintain his diet as long as he came in regularly to have his teeth cleaned and checked. The patient was thrilled to hear this, because his probiotic foods gave him energy and made him feel great. We cleaned his teeth and scheduled him for his next appointment, which would be a few months away. The patient was thrilled with the news that we gave him, and he hasn’t missed an appointment. His teeth are staying healthy thanks to the professional staff at the dental clinic in SSP. Dr. Christopherson is always patient, understanding, and takes the time to listen to the patient, which was important.
