Cavities.  Dental Plaque.  Tooth decay.  I'll bet if I asked you about these you would talk about brushing, flossing and going to the dentist every six months.

But as Dr. Danenberg explains in today's show there's a much bigger story at work when it comes to having a healthy mouth and strong teeth.  It comes down to having the right type of diet and lifestyle to support your teeth.  Dr. Al discusses the importance of the micro-biome both in your gut and in your mouth, how plaque serves an important function in the re-mineralization of teeth and how you can cure tooth decay with an ancestral diet.

Dr. Al is a dentist but more specifically a periodontist who has been in practice for more than 40 years.  He’s a graduate of the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery and the University of Maryland Graduate School of Dentistry.

Dr. Danenberg received advanced training in evolutionary nutrition from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine. He received his CFMP (Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner) designation from Functional Medicine University in June 2014, and the Primal Health Coach Certification in September 2014. In 2015, he was appointed to the faculty of the College of Integrative Medicine and created its integrative periodontal teaching module. Then, in April 2017, he earned the designation of “ADAPT Trained Health Professional from Kresser Institute.
