That’s a conscious deception of the patients and a hypocrisy of the dental profession”, further criticized Hendrickson. Dentists could affect the dental health of patients in the long term and in the long term positive if they would recommend, for example, the sugar substitute xylitol on the screening. Instead, he leads still a shadowy existence in Germany, although is known for decades that xylitol instead of sugar reduces the risk of tooth decay to zero and may even cure tooth decay.
