Dentistry is a source of immense satisfaction for me. Beyond offering services, I become a part of people's lives. I find the greatest impact I can make is guiding and motivating patients to take charge of their daily oral health habits, which significantly influences their quality of life at any age.
I specialize in Advanced General Dentistry, employing the latest technology for more effective treatments. However, my main emphasis lies in foundational aspects—the way we breathe, eat, and sleep—affecting our mental, dental, and overall well-being. This emphasis is underscored by promoting healthy, well-developed upper and lower jaws.
As an airway-centered dentist and mentor, I play a crucial role in guiding both patients and providers, much like a quarterback on the field. It's essential to meet the patient exactly where they are in their journey. The approach to treatment can encompass a wide spectrum, ranging from prevention to management and /or rehabilitation.
As healthcare professionals, dentists are acutely aware of the importance of detecting the risk and/or onset of conditions before they have life threatening consequences. With the increasing prevalence of OSA worldwide, dentists have a responsibility to be on high alert for all potential risk factors and symptoms exhibited by their patients.
The relationship between oral health, physical health, and sleep helps drive the proper diagnosis and treatment of the root cause or causes of conditions rather than just treating symptoms.
