If you have family history of heart disease or stroke;

If you are considered a “healthy” person,
Healthy Smile, Healthier Life has information that can help you
Live a healthier, happier… and longer life.
As a dentist, the mouth is the obvious starting place for Dr. Norige’s quest for better patient health. In Healthy Smile, Healthier Life, Dr. Norige explains — in plain English — the red flags in your mouth that signal unnecessary stress is being placed on your heart, and other warning signs he can see that affect more than your mouth.
Why is a dentist concerned with recognizing these signs?
While some physicians seem to forget it, the mouth is part of the whole body system,
which means that any change in the mouth can have a ripple effect throughout the body.
Dr. Norige’s philosophy of complete health dentistry guides him to find ways to positively
change your oral health and therefore your overall health.
Take your first step towards a better understanding of the connection between your oral health and overall health with Healthy Smile, Healthier Life.
