Diabetes and dental care. We talked with Pat Steffen, D.D.S., C.E.O. and Founder of My Dentist. Doctor Steffen and My Dentist is an important advocate of dental screenings to measure blood sugar levels. High blood sugar can signal potential problems with proper healing, undiagnosed diabetes or metabolic syndrome. My Dentist is a pioneer in continuing education for dentists and staff, providing the most up-to-date dental care in offices throughout the southwest.
