Today we look at a possible strategy for heading off the next generation of Alzheimer’s diagnoses by recognizing sleep, breathing and airway issues early. We are joined by Scott Saunders DDS, an expert in periodontal wellness and obstructive airways disease as applies to cognitive health. He is co founder and president of healthy mouth media.

Dr. Saunders received his DDS degree from Georgetown University School of Dentistry and practice general dentistry and periodontal wellness disturbed by the gap between mainstream dentistry and cutting edge research. Scott moved from clinical practice to writing for dental consumers and clinicians, blogging and collaborative publication and authoring of peer reviewed journal articles.
