MEET THE HOSTS
DR. MARK CANNON
Mark L. Cannon is a Professor of Otolaryngology, Division of Dentistry at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine, an Attending Physician at Ann and Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital and a member of the International Association of Pediatric Dentistry. In addition to being the founder of Associated Dental Specialists of Long Grove (1981); he is the Research Coordinator of the Pediatric Dental residency program at Ann and Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital, Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Cannon has 40 years of experience in pediatric dentistry and has presented lectures both nationally and internationally.
After reading the extensive research done in Finland about the benefits of xylitol, Dr. Lon Jones developed a xylitol nasal spray to treat his patients with persistent upper-respiratory infections.
He successfully treated his granddaughter’s ear infections, and soon began dispensing the solution to other patients with ear, nose, and throat issues. The results were astounding.
In 2000, Nathan Jones, Dr. Jones’ son, founded Xlear Inc. to make the nasal spray commercially available. Xlear was started almost 23 years ago and today their products are available everywhere. While xylitol and dental hygiene have been in the conversation for decades, Xlear has also been the pioneering organization when it comes to nasal health and hygiene. Xlear is making and selling oral and nasal hygiene products with xylitol that can, and of course, should be used by everyone.
Prior to starting Xlear, Nate Jones worked in the Gulf of Mexico doing underwater construction/commercial diving. He is also an avid pilot. He enjoys travelling, reading historical books, especially on ancient civilizations and then travelling to the places that he reads about.
