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.
