Why Blog?
 
My YouTube channel has been a great asset for people, so why not blog as well? I have received many messages from people who do not understand English, so this will make translation much simpler. Others prefer reading as opposed to watching videos. I hope to engage people more through writing. It is much more efficient to read when searching for answers to questions, rather than scroll through a video.
I want to talk about all of the issues one might face when dealing with dentures, so as to provide easy access of information. I hope this blog serves as a resource for those who really need it.
