Hey Peeps! I really do want to see you as a Fox News reporter. In fact I
have a great story idea for you to do in the Fox News Health department that
would be of ENORMOUS interest to the readers.

A couple of years ago when going in for a routine teeth cleaning, I was
informed that I would have to schedule a later appointment with a
periodontist (which set me back another $80). Anyway, the periodontist told
me that I needed gum surgery or my teeth would fall out. Cost of the gum
surgery would be over $3000 plus there would be extensive surgery to my
gums. Not a really happy outlook there.

Anyhoo, I went to another dentist for a second opinion. He told me that my
gums were not in really great shape but that surgery at that point was
premature. However, he did advise me that because of the deep pockets by my
teeth, unless the problem was reversed surgery would be needed in the
future.

Fortunately, a friend of mine, Kathy, had the same problem and suggested I
look into a book on how to avoid gum surgery by Vasilios Gardiakos.
Basically the book recommended using a Vitapick to squirt a hydrogen
peroxide/saline solution into the gum pockets by the teeth. I tried it and
soon noticed an improvement. Well, folks that was two years ago. Yesterday I
went to the dentist and was told that my gums were in PERFECT shape and that
there was NO CHANCE of my teeth falling out. (WHEW!)

Check out this URL for a review of Gardiakos' book. The only thing I
disagree with the review is that the reviewer makes using the Vita Pick seem
a lot tougher than it really is. True, the first few times it is a bit
awkward. However, after you get used to it, it becomes amazingly easy to use
the Vita Pick. I could even do it blindfolded now!

Anyway, Peeps, this would make a terrific Fox News Health story for you.
Apparently there is a big scam going on. Since the widespread use of
fluoride has sharply reduced tooth decay among the general population,
dentists must find more sources of revenue. One method is to recommend gum
surgery WITHOUT informing patients of the inexpensive non-surgical
alternative. I found out from others that this gum surgery recommendation is
becoming more frequent recently.

I'm sure you could do a great story on this, Peeps. Just think, you could
become a Fox News celeb just like "Dr. Jorden!"

p.s. Let me know if you want to do this story. I can put you in touch with
Mr. Gardiakos. I have phoned him before to thank him for his book.
