Diabetes testing at dentist’s office – Oral Health Watch

Should you get tested for diabetes at the dentist’s office? Periodontitis, a chronic gum infection characterized by swollen, tender or receding gums, can be an early warning sign of Type 2 diabetes, and dental offices could be an ideal place to screen for it.
