What is a Complete Health Dentist?
“Your mouth is the gateway to your entire body. Viruses, bacteria and even disease can initially start in the mouth. A complete health dentist is trained at finding and helping prevent the spread of disease before it becomes a problem. At our office not only will you get a thorough mouth examination, but we will also check your heart rate, blood pressure, identify inflammation and scan for any early warning signs that may need to be communicated to your MD. Our patients’ overall health is our primary goal, which is why our motto is to “save lives, one smile at a time!”
Tell us about your tagline “Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body, Healthy Life.”
“There are many oral health conditions that have significant impact on your general health. For instance, gum disease is linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pregnancy complications, Alzheimer’s and certain cancers. A thorough examination is mandatory to alert us to dangerous conditions such as: oral cancer, oral airway obstruction, sleep apnea, TMJ disorders, headaches, migraines, proper bite and dental decay. These connections between the mouth and the body emphasize the importance of good oral health and dental stability in assuring better overall general health.”
What is unique about your practice?
“We collaborate with the physicians of our patients via personal meetings, mini-seminars and reports to work closely on our mutual patients’ needs. We must all be invested in the understanding of the inflammatory pathway and how the science of the oral systemic associations impacts our patients’ lives.”
How do you ensure your patients’ comfort while they are at your office?
“We offer music—headphones, sedation, warm towels, blankets and five-star service from a highly-educated and qualified office team.”
How do you give back to your community?
“We offer community-public lectures on implants and complete dental health. We host showings of the Say Ahh documentary, support local charities, donate dentistry to the needy and help feed the homeless.”
