Oral DNA Testing on Anderson Cooper's Show

Did you happen to catch Anderson Cooper's new show this morning? His guests were two women who were abandoned as infants, subsequently found and adopted. They know nothing about their biological families or medical histories.

On the show, oral DNA testing was done using the women's saliva to reveal information about their ancestral origins.

Similar Oral DNA testing with saliva is also available in our office to test for certain types of bacteria that can cause gum disease or human papillomavirus (HPV) that can lead to oral cancer. Testing is only a couple of hundred dollars and can provide valuable information to steer treatment options for oral health or provide peace of mind.

Thanks, Anderson Cooper, for bringing this valuable diagnostic tool to light.
