More About the Author

Do you love going to the dentist? It is a dreaded experience for many, but I have worked to allay fears by empowering patients.

Today we are talking about National Health Care - be careful what you wish for! The UK has had free dental services for over sixty years - and the British are known for the worst teeth in the world. Why? The reason unfortunately lies in the fact that you will receive whatever treatment dentists are paid for. In the UK, when I graduated, dentists were paid more to take out teeth and heavily fill them than do any preventive work. Many teenagers had dentures given to them as "wedding gifts". Sadly there are serious general health complications from dental disease and tooth loss.

You may think that the US has great dental care. US dentists do a lot of cleanings, fixing teeth and wonderful restorative work. Unfortunately this is another example of dentists doing treatments that pay the most. Why don't people in the US know that cavities can be reversed by you - at home - using o-t-c rinses? Why don't mothers know that children who eat a little xylitol growing up will be more protected from cavities in adulthood than from fluoride treatments or sealants?

My passion is to bring honest oral health education to patients. Interestingly this knowledge differs widely from the accepted mantra of dentistry. I want patients to be able to access the truth about teeth. Health professionals should be tested ( like a CPR test) on Evidence Based study results that indicate many diagnostic methods are ineffective and that patients can actually "clean" their own teeth with the correct o-t-c- products and avoid treatments.

I married a chef and we run a restaurant in Upstate NY, famous for desserts and pastries. The staff have used my system of care for decades and have the most beautiful teeth and shiny, clean smiles! This is what I want to do for others.

You can protect your own teeth if you know what to do! Dental disease is a bacterial disease and it transfers to others during kissing and sharing food. Parents infect their children and spouses infect each other. Flossing and brushing is not enough to stop this disease. My websites and books describe simple ideas, with explanations, that can change anyone's oral health for life! I believe this is my best service as a dentist - to help people avoid dental treatments and disease.

Unfortunately, after about nine months of diligently practicing her oral health routine, I needed to stop following Dr. Ellie's system because of some negative outcomes. (If you wish to skip to them now, I describe them at the very end of this review.)

I do not expect that most people would have the same problematic issues with the program as I did. I think that Dr. Ellie's system can be helpful to many people, and I am glad that I tried it out. I learned a lot about oral hygiene by reading her writings. I feel that her program improved my gum pockets and nerve sensitivity during the time that I employed it.

Below are:
My initial review
My three-month update
My nine-month update

Initial review: 5 stars

Kudos to Dr. Ellie, who created a simple (and relatively inexpensive) process that improved her patients' health, and then published the entire process online, for free. I am grateful to her.

It is odd that there aren't very many dentists out there in the US (at least as far as I am aware) who speak to the general public in so honest and freely a fashion as Dr Ellie does about what they think does work and does NOT work in their area of expertise.

My review here is mainly about her program.

In the comments section under my review, I will post the website address for Dr. Ellie's free pdf overview of her program.

A note about the book - it seems as if the book does not contain all the pertinent information that it could have, because greater detail (often quite helpful detail) on several of the key points is introduced piecemeal in the author's blog.

Format: Paperback
Ellie Phillips, DDS has written a book detailing the dental care regimen she recommends for her patients. Contrary to the eye catching title, she is not suggesting people stop seeing their dentist, but rather proposes a more preventative approach to keep dental problems to a minimum.

Her focus is on a series of rinses that adjust the mouth's chemistry, creating a healthier environment to facilitate the destruction of bad bacteria that cause plaque on teeth and contribute to gum disease, and encourage the growth of good bacteria that help bolster the natural rebuilding capabilities of our teeth.

Dr. Phillips explains why, although faithfully brushing and flossing, individuals may still have serious dental problems, but what is particularly helpful is her clear and non-technical explanations regarding why our current methods aren't working and why this system has good results. The book is actually interesting to read. There is a wealth of information for both adults and children along with some revealing material on the effect bleaching has on tooth health.

Trying the Dr. Phillips' system is not difficult or time consuming. The products are all available over the counter and on the internet with most being moderately priced. I am a cautious person and do not try every new fad that comes along, particularly when it comes to medical matters. I was interested in this book because I want to keep my teeth, not harm them. Dr. Phillips has been using this system for many years in her practice with success. What I read in her book makes sense to me, so I have started the program. It has been two weeks and entirely too soon to be reporting on my progress, but I can say my mouth has never felt cleaner.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author ( a dentist ) espouses her "system" of dental care based on her many years of experience in the practice. However, if you want to sum up the book in a few short words, it is thus:

Do the following twice a day in this order:
1. use Closys mouth rinse
2. brush with Crest Cavity Prevention toothpase using a small head <1" toothbrush
3. use Antiseptic rinse ( must be ADA approved, basic original Listerine is recommended )
4. use Protective rinse - ( recommend ACT anticavity rinse)

other tips:
clean toothbrush with Antibacterial rinse ( ala Listerine ), and store in protective box
get Xylitol in either gum,mint, or crystal form and use it regularly

There you have it, the "system", and your don't have to shell out for the book. Oh, and the author does have a website with the same info as above.

Format: Paperback
Oh how I wish I had access to a book like this twenty years ago when my dental challenges first began! This book not only helped me understand the cause of my dental challenges, something no dentist has taken the time to do before now, but also gives a very easy to follow mouthcare system to prevent dental disease.

I didn't realize that our teeth are built to naturally repair themselves as long as the mouth chemistry is healthy - mine wasn't. I had a very acidic mouth. It took reading this book to help me realize that fact and understand this was the cause of my continued dental problems.

I've been on the mouthcare system for a few months now and can say that it works! My mouth feels healthy and I'm starting to see signs of improvement with my teeth and gums.

I highly recommend this book.
