The Importance of Establishing a Dental Home
Establishing a “Dental Home” means that your oral health care is delivered in a comprehensive, coordinated, accessible, and family-centered way. The ongoing relationship between the dental professionals and the patient is crucial. Having a dental home also helps ensure that the appropriate referral is given when the recommended treatment is outside of the general dentist's scope of practice.
The Benefits of Good Dental Health
Oral disease and gum inflammation impact some of the top health issues Americans face, such as stroke, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and premature labor. A professional dental examination is the first step in assessing your personal risk factors. Our residents can then recommend appropriate treatment to improve your oral health.
Your dental and oral health is an important part of our commitment to your family's wellness.
