Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, best-selling co-author of the book, The Will To Win, with Brian Tracy, and owner of the Smilecreator of Naples, talks about an exciting new method and research that helps determine the risk for preventative approached for three of the most prevalent and deadly diseases.


Naples, FL, June 20, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “The Key To Health Is In Your Mouth” in which he introduces readers to an exciting and life-saving new testing method.

Dr. Nilo writes, “We are all very familiar with the stereo-typical scenario depicting a visit to the doctor.” He continues, “The doctor walks in, greets the patient, then says, “Open your mouth and say, ‘Ah.’” He or she then depresses the tongue with what looks like a wide popsicle stick and looks around inside the mouth.” Dr. Nilo states, “Most people are unaware of what the doctor is looking for.”

According to Dr. Nilo, “Generally, the doctor would be looking to see if there is anything swollen. And,” he emphasizes, “they are looking at the tongue for a variety of signs that could indicate any number of health issues that might be brewing.”

“The mouth is the primary gateway to the entire body,” Dr. Nilo says. He elaborates, “Everything that goes into the mouth makes its way through the body and much of what goes into the mouth ends up either adding to the health or the illness of the body and its organs. And, that health or illness is reflected in the mouth.”
