With your hands full to the brim with many to-do things, it’s nearly impossible to do everything that needs to be done. Your master’s degree thesis can wait. And even that pressing urge to hang out with friends can happen next time. While you can put off many essential things, at Patel and Dornhecker Dentistry in Cincinnati, Ohio, we plead with you not to neglect your oral health.
