Back in the 1970’s, a friend of mine in the music business worked with legendary artist, James Brown. Years later, my friend encountered the soul singer again and remarked, “You haven’t changed in 25 years!
With a huge smile, James Brown responded, “If You’ve Got Your Hair and Your Teeth …You’re Alright!”
While our hair supply (or lack thereof) may be genetic, we can, however, address the needs of our teeth. Recently visiting my dentist, I had an interesting conversation with the hygienist.
Well, actually she talked …I sounded a lot like, “Mmmdfh, Dpohhs, OPPPD!”
As caregivers, we should never underestimate the importance of visiting the dentist for regular cleaning. That one act can help us in a myriad of ways, and as caregivers …I think it’s safe to say that we need all the help we can get!
Enjoy John (the count of Mighty Disco) and me discussing this often overlook but critically important issue for family caregivers.
