A trip to the dentist typically involves fillings, cleanings, and other routine services. But today, progressive dentists are spending more time learning and informing patients how dentistry and overall health are directly connected.
For example, when patients are experiencing gum disease, their chances of serious health risks (heart disease, diabetes, etc.) dramatically increases. This is known as oral systemic health.
This new approach to dentistry is being recognized worldwide and Dr. Katie is embracing and implementing it in her Wellness Center. Our patients are able to benefit from increased longevity and vitality.
Multiple organizations teach dentists to recognize these harmful mouth issues, and Dr. Katie has dedicated herself to learning from the best. She is sharing this knowledge with our team so that we can provide the best patient care in all aspects of her Wellness Center. In our pursuit of wellness in all our patients we are collaborating with other dental and medical providers.
