A new era in dentistry
is rapidly emerging as a result of the process of intelligent evolution. The transition between the purely mechanical phase (drill and fill) to the highly evolved biologic phase of dentistry has occurred ... over the last 150 years ...

Over the years I have become more and more a believer of health restoration methods oriented towards total mind and body care rather than
the mere suppression of symptoms. For example, we know very well now that stress can suppress our immune system and this in effect will compromise our response to disease. Stress can also have a traumatic effect in
the mouth ranging from breakdown of the tooth's supporting structure to extreme wear on the teeth .
In my office, my Initial Exam is very holistic in nature in order to find out about the whole patient rather
than just the teeth. A thorough file of personalized information is gathered including the medical and dental history of the patient.
I strongly believe every one deserves the best dentistry can offer, and it is my professional responsibility to offer the best comprehensive treatment plan to
all my patients.
I also believe in the proper use of high-tech dental equipment in dentistry. Using high-tech equipment for diagnostic and educational purposes
during the initial examination means that my patients have more comfort physically and mentally with the procedures they are receiving or learning about.
My state-of-the-art digital x-ray equipment enables
me to instantly display and print your x-ray with the help of a computer system. The Digital Radiography system reduces x-ray radiation by as much as 90%. It is also environmentally friendly, the images captured by
digital radiography require no hazardous processing chemical or film.
Pictures taken with a digital and intra-oral camera
allows the patient to see how their teeth appear
from inside and out and to have a visual record of
the progress made. This technology is particularly
valuable for cases of cosmetic improvements. In
these cases, my lab uses the digital & Clinical
information I supply to produce a diagnostic wax-up
of the case of the expected result of the treatment
being planned. Before treatment begins, the patient
has the opportunity to see, how their teeth will
look at the end of the treatment.
