Are you a health conscious person in our fast paced metropolitan city? For working professionals, sometimes keeping healthy amid a tightly packed schedule can prove to be an uphill challenge.
Opting for the staircase when elevators are so readily available these days will require a lot of self-discipline, just as maintaining good oral health by brushing your teeth twice a day and visiting the dentist twice yearly.
This year, we are happy to announce that Specialist Dental Group’s Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr Ho Kok Sen, is an invited speaker at the annual LOHAS (Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability) event. About 800 people are expected to attend this annual mega health seminar organized by the Lianhe Zaobao Chinese language newspaper.
Attendees at this seminar will receive helpful insights from Dr Ho as he will be speaking on the topic of the mouth and body connection. We have all heard that regular brushing and flossing of our teeth will result in better oral hygiene and that twice yearly visits to the dentist will keep our teeth in good shape for a long time to come.
What is not as widely known, is that the state of your dental health has a close relationship with the state of your general health. Gum disease has been linked to lung infection, heart disease, miscarriage, pre-term childbirth, diabetes and other medical conditions.
During this seminar, you can also find out more about attaining holistic well-being from various talks. Readers can expect the following topics on the two sessions that will be held:
