You may be wondering why we’d write about diabetes when we are a dental office. It’s a legitimate thing to wonder about. However, it’s important to remember that your dental health is not in isolation from the rest of your health. Much of your dental health is connected to your physical health and vice versa. You can read more about this on our blog about malnutrition and dental health.

The month of November is set aside by the American Diabetes Association to raise awareness about the disease. They suggest that there is emerging research that “also suggests the relationship between serious gum disease and diabetes is two-way.” The ADA states that serious gum disease may potential to affect blood glucose control and contribute to the progression of diabetes, and people with diabetes are more susceptible to serious gum disease.

2017 Statistics About Diabetes According to the American Diabetes Association

Due to the “two-way” relationship between diabetes and your dental health, it is important to tell our dental professionals at Mansouri Family Dental Care & Associates if you have it. It is also important to maintain your regular dental cleanings and checkups for optimal dental health. We look forward to seeing you in our office soon!

This place is awesome. They are a complete team. The front desk is on top of their game. Billing is straight and to the point. No guess work required. They verify your insurance before you arrive in most cases. The Dr's are very competent and caring. The hygienists are great and everyone is nice and professional. You will not regret going to this office.

I am proud to give Mansouri Family Dental Care a 5 star review. They have built a beautiful facility in Marietta. Nicola always cleans my teeth. I would give her more that 5 stars if that was an option. I know I get personal attention and an excellent cleaning. Thank you Nicola.

Nate M.

What a wonderful dental care team! They took great care of my wife and I, and even gave great accommodations for my wife who is very scared of the dentist. They were very transparent with billing and answered all our medical questions clearly and quickly.

I’m very pleased with this practice. I’ve been a patient there for a few years and I really trust Dr Mansouri’s diagnosis and treatment. I was having a lot issues with my jaw and teeth and he told me exactly the treatment I needed and now finally my issue was resolved. I also love Nicola my hygienist. She is very thorough with my cleaning. I highly recommend this practice!!!
