Dr. Tina Saw created Oral Genome to help her patients answer questions about their dental health. As a practicing dentist, and someone who has been in the dental industry for over 15 years, she has spent a lot of time in the dental chair fixing teeth with the drill.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, her dental practice was temporarily shut down, and that is when the idea hit her to create a saliva test that would help people understand and discover things in their saliva that influence their risk for dental cavities, gum disease and bad breath.
Dr. Saw didn’t want to just provide lab results to people. She wanted to simplify it, distill it and provide easy-to-understand results and recommendations for people to take action at home.
