Dr. Gupta Featured on The Medical Hour

Dr. Saroj Gupta was a featured guest on the June 12 edition of The Medical Hour with Dr. Jim Novick on WCBM Talk Radio AM 680.

Dr. Gupta, assistant professor in the Department of Oncology and Diagnostic Sciences, discussed how oral health needs change as people age. For example, dry mouth becomes more common in older adults due to a lack of saliva. Chewing small pieces of ice is a healthy and effective way to combat dry mouth and prevent cavities, explains Dr. Gupta.

She stressed that seeing a dentist regularly is just as important for older adults as it is for children. "If you keep your mouth healthy, you can prevent a lot of disease," she states.
