By Dr. Elisa Song | Physiology

If you’ve ever suffered from headaches, you know how awful they can be. I, knock-on-wood, don’t often get headaches, but the ones I’ve had have been doozies and I have endless empathy for kids and adults who get them on a regular basis. And of course, when your child has a headache, the first concern that might pop into some of your heads is that something could be wrong – really, really wrong.

Questions to Ask your new Dentist

Do you see the truth of that, not verbally, not intellectually, but actually with your heart and mind?
