Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Dental Health & Overall Health Too many people believe that they need to see a dentist only if there is something wrong or for cosmetic reasons. According to The American Dental Association, research continues to show that there is a connection between dental infections and other diseases of the body. This is because there is a direct link from your teeth to your bloodstream. Dentists can spot early warning signs in the mouth indicating disease somewhere else in the body (like diabetes and heart disease, for example). It is critical to prevent problems before they occur. A simple way to help avoid these potentially serious infections, in addition to maintaining your beautiful smile, is by scheduling regular visits to the dentist. Dentistry is more in-depth than some people think. Our area of care includes not only our patients' teeth and gums but also the muscles of the head, neck and jaw, the tongue, salivary glands, the nervous system of the head and neck, and other areas. A Smile that Lasts a Lifetime One common ailment we look for and treat is periodontal disease (also known as gum disease). It strikes about 80% of adults and is the leading cause of tooth loss.
