The sad news is that real doctors and medical students are likely to skip this book, sure they already know everything they need to ... and they would be WRONG! Our medical/illness system fails to teach and almost always fails to treat the root causes of many illnesses, even though they have been clearly identified in the scientific literature.
In this incredible book, noted author Carol Vander Stoep has done a masterful job of weaving together the concepts of biological medicine (going beyond using lab tests and complaints, to treat each person in all dimensions) and biological dentistry (dentistry practiced far beyond the drill, fill, and bill patchwork approach of past eras). As we learn more about the fields of pathophysiology, we will ever more appreciate the interconnections of hormones, immunity, infections, inflammation, metabolism, cell functions and division, and toxic chemicals and metals, as these all relate to failing health. This book charts an easy path for readers to more fully appreciate what we know now and especially what actions we can take each day to help restore and preserve more robust health.
Mouth Matters is a made simple guide, one that should be read by every parent hoping to lead their children toward natural healing and away from an expectation of illness, medications, and surgery. While the sad news is that it is less likely to be on your doctor s bookshelf, the good news is it will be a treasured reference in many homes... and hopefully available in most dental offices.
Are you ready for a primer that makes modern medical and dental discoveries clearly within your reach, that shows you how small adjustments in your lifestyle can reap huge rewards? Then Mouth Matters is for you, right now! And strangely enough(?) this should be a gift you share with family and friends, to open for them the prospect of fewer pharmaceutical drugs, a lower likelihood of operations, only occasional doctor visits ... and the blessings of better health!

I have had the privilege of watching Carol Vander Stoep grow as an author, helping proof her second version of Mouth Matters as she expanded, improved, and clarified her first edition. She comes from a unique position as an author she addresses very complex subject matter. She researches, understands, applies to clinical practice, and then writes about various topics. This allows her to present the subject in a way a layperson can comprehend and apply, greatly shortening their learning curve.
I strongly recommend this book as an easy path for any health professional to become current in this fast evolving field of oral systemic health. The knowledge gained from her creation will also allow health professionals to better explain the connection and interactions between oral health and systemic health to the most important persons in our professional lives, our patients who are entrusting their health to our skills and knowledge.

Carol Vander Stoep's latest offering Mouth Matters, addresses oral and oral/systemic issues in a clear and comprehendible manner. The chapter on ozone therapy is very timely, as it addresses the most important paradigm shift to occur in dentistry in the last 60 years. This book is a must read for dentists, dental staff and patients. Robert E. Harris, Jr. DMD, NMD, IBDM

About the Author
Carol Vander Stoep brings a combination of experience, concern and passion to this book. Over her thirty-year career in dental hygiene she has looked into the mouths of thousands of people and observed the startling range of what can result from poor lifestyle choices and the neglect of oral care.
She has observed that problems are not confined to the poor or uneducated behind those winning smiles of the rich and famous can lie inflamed sores, infected teeth, and degenerative bone disease. Too few realize the consequences of neglect go beyond teeth and gums, sweet breath or winning smiles; the mouth is the most exposed gateway into our bodies and what goes on within it or passes through it has profound implications elsewhere in our bodies, undermining overall health.
While acquiring extensive clinical experience, Carol came to realize that the place of oral hygiene within dentistry and the place of dentistry within preventive medicine hinders public and professional awareness of the role oral care should play in our daily lives and how medical providers approach patient care. A BS degree from Baylor University provided the foundation of knowledge, enhanced by extensive research and study with leaders in a wide variety of fields in the professional medical community. Applying the science in her clinical practice helps refine simple techniques that work for her clients and help her hone her verbal motivational skills.
As Carol s concerns grew, her awareness of the system and respect for the importance of professional discipline convinced her to carry her message beyond the confines of her place in a dental office. That realization led her to bring together the perspectives, the stories, and the knowledge she has acquired to prepare this book.
Carol is on the board of directors of the Academy of Minimally Invasive Biomimetic Dentistry (AMIBD) and a founding member of the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health. She lives in Austin, Texas, nurturing two daughters through their teens and tending her gardens. She finds time to kayak and travel while continuing her professional work as a hygienist and speaker to professional audiences and the general public.
