Are Bad Teeth Genetic?

Happy Family Outside 1280x480

It's hard to refute the anecdotal evidence out there, but generally the answer is NO. Just because your parents or grandparents had "bad teeth" doesn't mean you are doomed to the same fate, and shouldn't be used as an excuse to explain the dental missteps you may experience. While it could be said that "family influence" or the way you were raised is the early basis for most good (or bad) dental hygiene habits; generally speaking, the health of your teeth and gums has more to do with the quality of your diet and current home care routine than your family history.

Dear Patients,

Dr Campbell and Staff hope you and your families are doing well and staying healthy during this difficult Coronavirus crisis.  The health and well being of our patients, staff, families, and our community as a whole is our top priority.

As you may have already heard, we have been instructed by the Ohio State Dental Board to discontinue elective patient services in the hopes of reducing the risk of spreading this very contagious virus.  We are limiting patient care to emergency services only for the next few weeks and will keep you updated about any changes through emails, texts, and our website.

If you have any dental pain or discomfort or a situation that needs prompt attention, please call the office to leave a message as we are checking our answering service regularly.  You may also contact Dr. Campbell directly at the cell number provided at the end of our greeting message.

We thank you for putting your trust in us to provide for your dental care needs.  We are closely monitoring updates from the State Dental Board as well as the ADA and CDC and will keep you posted as more information is available.

Thank You for your patience and Stay Healthy!

Dr. Scott A Campbell,  DDS, and Staff
