Book Testimonials
In a convincing, easy to follow way, Dr. Somborac shows the causes of the shocking rise in excess weight, diabetes, heart disease and other "diseases of civilization", how dental decay forecasts them and how to prevent them.  As Hippocrates taught us, health is the greatest human blessing.  I highly recommend this book.
Gordon Nikiforuk, DDS, MSc, FRCD, FCID, Professor and Dean Emeritus, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto
This is a must read. It is intellectually provocative and ultimately a compelling view of opportunities missed by oral health professionals. However, its message is prudently and sensibly articulated so as to reassure us that a less technologically linear and more disciplined approach to avoiding disease patterns is indeed feasible.
George A. Zarb, B.Ch.D., D.D.S., M.S. (Mich.), M.S. (Ohio State), F.R.C.D. (C), Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto
In this book, Dr. Somborac has stimulated all of us to look closely at a much broader scope for our professional responsibilities.  We dentists see patients on a much more frequent basis than others in health care.  He has opened our eyes to the possibility to help others with their overall health while we accomplish our specialized portion of healthcare.

Dr. Somborac's writing is lucid. Reading Your Mouth, Your Health is like seeing contemporary dental and health issues through X-ray glasses.
Dr. Ansgar Cheng, Adjunct Associate Professor, National University of Singapore, Examiner, Royal College of Dentists, Canada, Prosthodontist, Specialist Dental Group, Singapore

Reading the hard science and the indisputable statistics that simple carbs are the cause of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and more, is sobering.
Your Mouth, Your Health is a compelling and uncomplicated read that would be appropriate and life changing for all ages and education levels.
ForeWord CLARION Review (Five Stars)

In this extremely well-written book Dr. Somborac shows how profit-driven manufactured foods lead to disastrous results. Speaking as a dentist, he shows the close ties between oral disease and systemic disease.  As an Italian, I'm happy to note his focus on the benefits of the Mediterranean diet.  This thought-provoking book is an absolute must for everyone.
Prof. Adriano Piattelli, MD, DDS, Professor of Oral Pathology and Medicine, Dental School, University of Chieti-Pescara, Italy
Your Mouth, Your Health is a must read for all dentists and their patients!  Dr. Somborac helps readers understand the current international research interest of the mouth-body connection and relate it to improving individual's overall health.  The practical, user-friendly suggestions for dentists to help their patients improve oral health are particularly useful.  Anyone interested in curtailing the persistent problem of chronic disease in North America should be compelled to read and digest Dr. Somborac's ideas.
