It's a family affair this week! We are excited to introduce you to our Mom and Dad, Dr. Gene & Cindy Sambataro. They have worked together for over 40 years and built an incredible biological dental practice called the Julian Center for Comprehensive Dentistry. They have extensive knowledge on the connection between oral health and whole-body health. In this episode, they share common issues they see such as sleep apnea, gum disease and dental decay, and how dietary and lifestyle choices impact these.
We dive into many fascinating topics ranging from the dangers of mouthwash and a vegan diet to tips and tricks for nutrition and oral hygiene. And of course, we get into their top biohacks and motivation behind prioritizing their health every day.
