Highly recommended! My wife and I actually went to see Sandra Senzon in NYC (we live in Boston) after reading the book. We have been looking to find a more holistic type of dentistry practice for a while now. Sandra shares a gentle protocol with concrete steps that could save not only your gums and teeth, but a lot of money as well. I wish I knew about her 10 years ago.

"Reversing Gum Disease Naturally" explains clearly how to take care of your mouth and avoid difficult and expensive treatments. Sandra Senzon's advice focuses on natural ways using essential oils and proper dental hygiene that most dentists don't tell you. I highly recommend this book if you are concerned about tooth and gum care.
