Recipes for Dental and Other Patients
There are many different ways in which food and cooking is important to dentists and their patients. A patient might have TMJ, problems either chewing or swallowing, sensitive teeth, be wearing braces, avoiding sugar, or have other concerns. There are even recipes for how to make your own toothpaste or mouthwash! Often recipes of interest to patients in one of these groups might be helpful for other patients as well.
The Dentistry Library has a number of cookbooks available for patients in the Consumer Health section of our Reference collection. You can find these books listed in MIRLYN by searching "Cookery" as a subject heading, or the textwords "Recipes" or "Cookbook", and then refine the search to just the Dentistry Library.
In addition to our books, here are a few websites of interest on this topic.
