November is upon us—the time of year when we can be grateful for our good health. Yet, it’s also a good time to take a step back and reevaluate our overall health. Since November is National Diabetes Awareness Month and November 14th is World Diabetes Day, we simply can’t ignore the fact that 29.1 million people living in the United States alone have diabetes. And you can’t forget about the 8.1 million people living with diabetes that don’t even know they have it.
In honor of Dr. Fredrick Banting, the co-discoverer of insulin back in 1921, dentists and health practitioners alike draw awareness to this disease to halt it’s epidemic. Your dentist in Midtown East is here to shed light on the correlation between oral health and diabetes.

What’s keeping you from receiving the dental care that you deserve? If you think that your dental care won’t be covered by your insurance provider, think again—especially if you have a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA). If your employer offers either of these insurance options to their employees, you may just be able to make use of them before your benefits expire at the end of the year.
