Share Article

A new segment will detail the importance of oral health.

Viewers likely know Rob Lowe from such 80s hits as St. Elmo’s Fire and The Outsiders, and the Emmy award-winner is also noted for his work on NBC’s The West Wing and Parks and Recreation. But recently, Lowe’s leant his talents to educational purpose as the host of the new series “Informed,” which puts the spotlight on important modern-day issues that face today’s society. One of the most recent episodes centers around adult dentistry and the importance of proper oral care.

Among all health concerns, dental hygiene seems to be at the bottom of the list for many people. But dentists and doctors alike urge Americans to pay better attention to the health of their mouths. Not only does consistent brushing and flossing keep cavities at bay, it also helps keep the rest of your body healthy. In fact, problems with oral health often mirror illnesses that may be lurking elsewhere in the body. For example, periodontal (gum) disease is often associated with heart disease and stroke. If adult men and women understood this relationship more fully, dental hygiene might rightly take its place among the most important aspects of health to pay attention to.

“Informed” with Rob Lowe is an award-winning series made for public television. Because of its prominence in front of a national audience, each episode is thoroughly researched and carefully proofread. This provides the highest quality content for American viewers and has won the series many accolades. The dentistry episode along with the rest of the “Informed” series is delivered to numerous PBS Member Stations and Public Television stations across America.
