MEET YOUR HOSTS

Why Was This Summit Produced?

Your hosts, Scott Saunders, DDS and Bonnie Benjamin spent over 18 months asking people just like you what they wanted from health care and dental care; what they weren’t getting; what their unanswered questions were; what they were most concerned about, and what they defined as good health. 

This Summit is the result of that research.  

Scott Saunders, DDS

Scott is a co-founder of Healthy Mouth Media. He received his DDS degree from Georgetown University School of Dentistry. His background includes clinical practice in general dentistry and periodontal health. He is a published author of everything from a dental advice newspaper column to peer-reviewed articles in top-tier dental journals, as well as his own comprehensive review article on nanotechnology in dentistry, which is regularly cited by other authors. He is also a clinical researcher with over 20 years’ experience investigating how the body can heal itself…if we let it.  

 He is also a trained Clinical Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Tapping practitioner. Scott is not currently in dental practice.

Bonnie Benjamin

Bonnie is a co-founder of Healthy Mouth Media. She received her BSBA degree from the University of Connecticut, initially working in the accounting field before starting her own company, writing her first book and realizing that research and writing were her passions.  

When she met Scott, she soon realized that with her business and writing background, she could help him realize his vision of bringing cutting-edge, actionable information to the dental and general health-care consumer. Working with Scott, she has developed an interest in dentistry and has become deeply involved in research and writing for both Healthy Mouth Media and for the book she is currently writing, Healthy Mouth – Healthy Mom – Healthy Baby.  

Although oral-systemic health and dentistry were new areas to her, she is not new to medicine, having grown up in a medical family with a grandfather who was a physician, a mother and grandmother who were nurses, and a sister who is a nurse. There is even an oral tradition that some the women in her family were healers in the 18th century.
