CT - New Haven County (SW) Chapter

Event: Open House & Optimal Oral Health Presentation

October 16, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

On October 16 at 6:30 p.m., Holistic Moms Network’s New Haven County chapter will host Jay Wolkoff, MS, CNS, CDN, as he presents Promoting Optimal Oral Health: A Natural Approach for Healthy Teeth, Gums and Facial Development. This talk will focus on using dietary and lifestyle strategies—combined with supplements, herbs, probiotics, and commercial or DIY toothpastes and rinses—as a means to promote optimal oral wellness throughout our lives.

Although we may eat well, brush our teeth and floss daily, most of us seem fated for a lifetime of dental decay, periodontal challenges and narrow facial development. Are we accepting the “inevitable”? Are we sourcing out safer, more natural and less invasive dental procedures without considering root causes?

Wolkoff, a certified nutritionist specializing in integrative and functional medicine, will be leading this presentation. He graduated summa cum laude with a master’s of science degree in human nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, and holds a bachelors of science in nutrition/dietetics from the University of New Haven. In addition to currently studying the effective applications of herbs, he is an organic gardener and a regenerative agriculture practitioner who is also dedicated to yoga and mind-body therapies.
