At Well Being Dentistry, we strive to deliver holistic, preventive, and comprehensive oral care to patients having their best interests in mind. Our doctors are highly dedicated and well-trained in advanced dentistry and have a minimally invasive care approach as physicians in oral medicine. They provide dental treatment with a focus on ensuring it has a positive impact on the patient’s oral health and overall well-being.
We treat our patients for their optimal wellness that stems from oral health by addressing the root causes of the manifestation of diseases in the mouth rather than chasing after the symptoms and only offering damage control. Sadly, this is typically the case with the tunnel vision provided by the traditional dentistry approach, such as simply removing diseased tooth structure and consequently shortening the life span of teeth instead of an approach focused on regeneration and restoration. Current research shows that the majority of oral manifestations of diseases, young or old, come from being unable to sufficiently breathe through one’s nose and having an obstruction in the airway, especially during sleep. Thus, we collaborate closely with ENT, allergy specialists, and sleep physicians to serve our patients better and help them breathe better, sleep better, and ultimately live better to their fullest potential.
