PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

relationship between cognitive dysfunction and dental health

Assuming that dentists, dental hygenists and other health care professionals have good oral hygiene, it would be expected that this group would also have fewer problems with cognitive impairment.
May I suggest that testing elderly dental professionals would be a method of confirming your findings?
