095: Janice King on Plant Nutrition to Protect Your Smile

Jan 27

For the past two decades, Janice King has carried out extensive research on oral health and its connection to systemic diseases.

Together with co-founder Dale Winetroub, Janice developed a breakthrough patented oral therapeutics system: TRI-OLOGY (used and recommended by dentists for 10 years). “TRI-OLOGY” technology addresses a key risk factor linked to chronic diseases – inflammation.

A published study, “Comparison of Antimicrobial and Wound Healing Agents on Oral Fibroblast Viability and In-vivo Bacterial Load,” identifies a cause of oral inflammation linked to periodontal disease and systemic diseases. The study identifies how TRIOLOGY® can prevent, repair and protect oral tissues from inflammation.

Janice and Dale also opened the first non-dental mouth care center in the United States, where they spent 4 years studying the effects oral hygiene products, medicine, stress, age, health status and lifestyle have on oral health.

With a grant from the National Science Foundation, they are currently leading the TRI-OLOGY team in researching how family members of individuals diagnosed with age-related Alzheimer’s Disease feel about the disease and what they are doing to reduce their risk factors. They’re on a mission to educate others on the critical role the health of the mouth plays on the health of the entire body.
