Oral health is an essential part of overall health for children and adults. The Mighty Mouth Campaign (funded by Washington State Dental Service Foundation), aims to help raise awareness about the importance of oral health, by teaming up with physicians, health/fitness experts and others to help spread the message and offer simple tips that can go a long way to improving oral health, even among those who may have neglected their mouths for years.

Dr. Maxine Hayes, physician and retired Washington State Health Officer, joined guest hosts Suzie Wiley and Jim Dever to discuss a number of topics, including her passion for treating the whole patient and helping other physicians join the effort to discuss oral health with their patients, especially adults being treated for chronic illnesses.
