Dr. Lawson Myers said the HD's Jazz Journey series was born out of a passion she has to empower people and help them make better decisions about dental and health matters.This she insisted should be based on factual information rather than myth.
A wealth of important dental and health related information have been divulged through these videos. These include explanations that link some dental problems to the lifestyle and practices that caused them. Information on topics such as gum disease, cosmetic dentistry, root canal, oral hygiene and others are presented on a proverbial platter for all and sundry.
Pointing to the pendulum swing in the method and source of gathering information, especially among young people, she explained that the titleHD’s Jazz Journey is more "hippy" and social media friendly and likely to attract viewers than any caption of a dental nature. She accepted that social media is now the preferred choice and decided to 'go wid di crowd'.
"I started filming these ideas on my smart phone, in fact the first few episodes were done with my iPhone and uploaded to the YouTube channel of my dental practice Liguanea Family Dental. I was not satisfied with the quality so I decided to take a more professional approach with the production and presentation. The feedback so far has been encouraging and satisfying. People have confirmed that they have benefited from the episodes that they have seen".
