Small time investment with major dividends.

Healthy people tend to take their teeth for granted. It is easy to maintain oral health by spending five minutes a day flossing and brushing. But teeth and gums offer more health knowledge than just as instruments for chewing food. They provide an early warning system for the most serious of illnesses. “Chernoffisms” are a collection of quotations from ‘Dr. C’ that inspire patients to do their dental diligence.


Dental diligence is easy, and consistent daily care offers the best health insurance policy for the future. Brushing and flossing, combined with regular checkups, offer more health benefits in a shorter amount of time than any other activity.
