    Dr. Harris, I thought you might like to see the results of the CDC’s survey about teeth!

    Here it is, and we have included an excerpt with some of the results:

    Eight percent of the adult U.S. population in 2011 had lost all of their natural teeth, according to the most recent National Health Interview Survey. One percent of adults had never visited a dentist or other dental health professional.

    Overall, 44 percent of adults last visited a dentist or other dental health professional within the previous six months; 17 percent more than six months ago but not more than one year ago; 13 percent more than one year ago but not more than two years ago; 12 percent more than two years ago but not more than five years ago, and 13 percent last visited a dentist or other dental health professional more than five years ago.

    You can see the rest here:
