Welcome to our website and practice! I hope this site will be a useful tool for you if you are considering visiting our practice or if you have already become a part of our dental family. Our mission is to honor Jesus Christ in all we do and will try to apply that to our daily work in dentistry.
More specifically, we will work together to help you:
- Understand your concerns.
- Understand your particular dental health needs and find solutions that will fit into your budget of time, energy, and money.
- Understand your role in the process so we can get the best results. This usually includes important education and training in home care skills, equipment, compliance with instructions before and after treatment, and learning how to decrease inflammation through nutritional and life style choices (see the section on healthy living).
"Beautiful Smiles Begin from With-in" is a key concept because it is really is not possible to have optimal periodontal health if you are not healthy. Despite what the insurance industry has said, your mouth is part of your body! We must consider the whole person in our pursuit of dental and general health and especially the role of the immune system and inflammation. There are several things we can do to reduce inflammation and the best way to get started is to read the book, Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. The solution to reducing inflammation is eating a mostly plant based diet and regular exercise. The dental team can only do so much and if the patient doesn't address this part of their recovery plan they won't get optimal results. With this eating plan, one can reduce systemic inflammation up to 50% in 12 weeks! See the "Links to my favorite books", the flyer, "The Big Picture", and my migraine recovery story on the home page for more information.
