Areas of Focus

  • Holistic and Preventive DentistryHolistic Dentistry considers the "whole person" relative to oral health and dental disease by addressing underlying causes versus merely treating symptoms alone. Traditionally, the holistic approach takes into consideration the impact of things like diet, nutrition, stress, lifestyle, family history. Preventive Dentistry is concerned with keeping your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime by providing the information and tools necessary to prevent oral disease.
  • Oral Health and Dental Hygiene Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain optimum health. Periodontal disease is 100% preventable by thoroughly and effectively cleaning your mouth everyday at home and maintaining a regular schedule of routine professional cleanings and exams by your dental hygienist.

    Our focus is directed toward the prevention of dental problems. We believe that treating causes has many advantages over treating symptoms alone.

    You have the right to achieve optimal oral health. We provide the information and tools necessary to prevent oral disease while allowing you to choose your own level of dental wellness.

    We believe that what you do for yourself at home, in between periodic cleanings and exams, is of far greater importance than anything we can do for you. Through "Health Learning", we will work with you on effective homecare. We will take you as far as you want to go toward achieving your optimum health.

    Oral healthcare is a lifelong process. While oral care needs change with age, the fundamental principles remain the same: Gum disease generally results from a bacterial infection. Uncontrolled, it can contribute to bad breath, bone loss around the teeth, and eventual tooth loss.

    We utilize the latest technology which offers the most sophisticated level of diagnosis currently available making it possible for us to detect a potential periodontal problem earlier than ever before. In most cases, early detection means simpler and more effective treatment.

  • Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy Utilizing the phase contrast microscope, antibacterial irrigations, scaling, root planing, and laser treatment, we provide the most comprehensive non-surgical periodontal therapy program available.
  • Adhesive DentistryAdhesive Dentistry gives dentists the ability to restore a tooth without the need to destroy healthy tooth structure. Only the defective pre-existing restoration and decay need be removed. Learn More

    Keeping your teeth for a lifetime is an achievable goal. There are several options available if you are concerned about the appearance of your smile. Even the most subtle changes can make a dramatic difference in the way you look to others, and in the way you look and feel about yourself.

    Recent advances in dental technology, materials and techniques have led to the creation of new aesthetic materials so similar to natural tooth structure in luster, strength and performance that they far surpass conventional treatment. These advances have also improved our ability to restore and maintain periodontal health.

    We are confident that our knowledge, expertise, skill and use of the finest materials currently available, in addition to working only with the laboratories and technicians who share our commitment to excellence, enable us to provide an unparalleled level of aesthetic excellence. The restorations we create need no specific daily care. We do, however, encourage you to protect the investment you make through continued effective oral hygiene care at home every day. This will ensure that you will have a beautiful, healthy smile for the rest of your life.

  • Neuromuscular DentistryNeuromuscular dentistry is the art and science of using the relaxed position of the muscles of the head and neck to place the jaw into an optimal physiologic position.
  • Biological DentistryBiologic Dentistry, like Holistic Dentistry, understands that the entire body impacts oral health. And just as importantly, Biologic Dentistry understands how oral conditions may affect the rest of the body. Biological dentistry is concerned with providing treatment and therapies that cause the least disturbance to the immune system, as well as identifying and addressing areas of chronic infection that may be impacting overall health. Learn More

    Biological Dentistry, an emerging field which has been developing over the last 50+ years, takes into consideration how treatments of the teeth and jaws will affect the immune system and overall health of the individual. The primary goals of biological dentistry are to identify areas that need treatment and to provide treatments which will not create the health stressors that conventional dental treatments may induce.

    Areas of concern in Biological Dentistry are:

    Toxicity of dental materials - especially metals - routinely used in dentistry.

    Dental Interference Fields or Foci -

    Hidden or residual infection including areas of necrosis and chronic inflammation.

    Detoxification of the body of the toxic metal residue stored in the body's cells and tissues.

    The extent and character of Oral Galvanism -

    A battery effect where direct electrical currents are generated by the dissimilar metals of fillings being in contact with saliva.

    Biological dentists believe that dental therapies, materials and procedures can effect the whole body. By working in conjunction with other health care providers, it is possible to investigate whether a problematic dental condition exists, and whether it may be the source of or contributing factor to overall health problems. It is also possible that hidden dental infections can be interfering with the effectiveness of medical therapies for existing health conditions.

    The primary focus of biological dentistry is to provide treatment and therapies that cause the least disturbance to the immune system.

    There is much controversy over the use of mercury amalgam filling material. For our health, and the health of our clients, it is our policy not to offer mercury-containing fillings.

    Biological dentistry is relatively non-toxic and individually bio-compatible.
