For this bonus episode—powered by Crest+Oral B—we're happy to invite back Sherri Lukes, who previously appeared on episode 103.

Sherri M. Lukes, RDH, MS, FAADH, has been a dental hygienist for 38years. She holds advanced degrees in education. She is associate professor emerita, Southern Illinois University, where she taught oral pathology, public health, and multicultural dental hygiene. Her research was concentrated in migrant oral health, pathology, and public health issues, resulting in multiple peer-reviewed publications. She is an approved speaker of and holds a pathology fellowship in the American Academy of Dental Hygiene and is a past president of the Illinois Dental Hygienists’ Association. Honors include community service, research, and teacher of the year awards while at SIU, IFLOSS Coalition/Illinois Department of Public Health Oral Health Champion Award, and the Sunstar/RDH Award of Distinction.


In this special episode, Sherri discusses why she thinks stannous fluoride is the bomb!  We discuss the many ways stannous fluoride can help your patient: antimicrobial, anticaries, its ability to interfere with gingival inflammation, and gene expression in pathogens like S. mutans.
