About today’s guest:

I’m Dr Leedia and I am a biological dentist focusing on whole body health: specifically, women’s dental health and early childhood dental education. 

Dental trauma often stems from childhood, and that can be significantly changed through infant oral health before teeth come in and positive connection. Dental decay ranks as the #1 chronic disease worldwide amongst children - completely preventable. 

Over 65% of women go through preventable dental disease during or soon after their pregnancies. Gum disease and inflammation in the oral cavity are linked to premature labor, lower birthweights, heart disease and the list goes on! 

It’s time to put our mouth back where it belongs, our body! The mouth-body connection is a real one. Hormones don’t discriminate. Dental materials and procedures used in the mouth have an impact on the body. And many physical diseases impact the wellness of the oral cavity. 

My mission as a dentist is to bring women’s dental health to the table, through education, and empowerment. In creating a liaison between the medical world and dental world, we are bridging the gap and creating the ability for our patients to achieve optimal whole body health.
