Floss and Flip Flops Episode 13: The Focal Point of Infection

The Sanders Sisters jump into 2023 with a discussion of the many conditions that display some of their earliest symptoms in the oral environment, and all the ways this can connect to systemic issues that can become serious health challenges for patients.
