There's a common misconception that dentists want their patients to consume more sugar to help drum-up business. In reality, the cornerstone of dentistry in 'prevention, prevention, prevention.' In fact, the dental profession has been at the forefront of the anti-sugar brigade for decades!
Take dentist Ira Shannon who wrote a landmark article for the ASDC "Journal of Dentistry for Children," discussing the percentage of sugar in breakfast cereals. What's most shocking is this article was published in the 1970's!!!
The Ludington Daily New printed the crux of the article in their newspaper on Thursday, August 19, 1976.
