My mother tells me that we were the same way as kids and outgrew it eventually and turned out just fine, but I’m still very stressed about it and feel like they’re not getting any proper nutrients.

Welcome back to school and the fall grind at work. Summer was warm, but felt too short, as always. There was one hot topic this summer that was discussed almost every hour in my office by every patient who came in. It wasn’t the Trump-Clinton race. It wasn’t the Rio Olympics. And even though I love tennis, it wasn’t Wimbledon, the U.S. Open or the defeat of the top seeds in the tennis world. The hot topic was (drum roll...) flossing!!
