Westchester Los Angeles Dentist Stephen H. Hook DDS

Hi! Welcome to my dental practice website and my practice, which is located in the Westchester area of Los Angeles near LAX. I’ve been practicing general, cosmetic, pediatric and family dentistry here in the Los Angeles area since 1975. My goal is to provide you with the gentle dental care you need at an affordable price. I would say my style is easy-going and that I’m part professor at heart, having taught in the dentistry school at USC for over 25 years. So that means I enjoy talking with you, answering your questions and teaching you as much as you want to learn in order to understand your dental care. I look forward to serving you.

Gum Disease Can Raise Your Blood Sugar Level

Scientists think that some of the germs in infected gums leak into the blood stream after normal activities such as chewing or tooth brushing. This starts a reaction from your body’s defense system, which, in turn, produces some powerful molecules that have harmful effects all over your body. An example is raising your blood sugar level.
