IntentionalDental Consulting
After 16 years in private practice, I decided to devote my career to helping dentists and other healthcare providers (or interested parties) recognize the root causes to unbalanced health. One of the root causes I recognized for tooth decay was an inability to control one's diet, and the effect it has on overall health.

I currently work in a rural area of NB where we have a very high rate of obesity. I along with my husband, our local p

I work with patients who have frequent and severe headaches, and obesity is a risk factor for developing more frequent headache patterns. I do not work with obese patients on a daily basis, but certainly some of our patients present with this comorbidity. I would like to help with prevention of the development of obesity in our patients, and also help make referrals for interested patients, to appropriate resources.
