Tell us about the new patient experience.
“Our office is inviting, relaxing and full of technology. The high, open ceilings paired with glass and wood accents will make you think you’re in a coffee shop. We might even have a cold brew for you as you’re greeted by our friendly team. The ARTSCI team is vetted and hand-selected based on their care, compassion and community outreach. Our amazing staff will guide you through the process of an exam with the latest digital technology. We’ll take a ‘tour of the mouth’ together while we codiagnose, collaborate and tailor a unique oral health plan for you. ”
What is your approach to dentistry?
“The best dentistry is no dentistry. Weird for a dentist to say, right? I practice minimally invasive dentistry with a biomimetic approach. If your tooth structure needs to be replaced due to decay or trauma, it is best replaced with materials that mimic the strength and flexure of your natural tooth structure. Using modern technology and materials, the biomechanics we can achieve will optimize the longevity, function and aesthetics of our patients’ dentition.”
Why are you passionate about oral health?
“Holistically, your mouth is not separate from the rest of your body. I am passionate about oral health because I believe the mouth is the window to one’s overall health. My goal is for my team to be the oral health coach, trainer and cheerleader for my patients throughout their lives.”
What special serviceS do you provide?
“Being specially trained in the detection of oral cancers helps me provide swift action and referral for prompt care. For patients who have been diagnosed with head and neck cancers, we offer pre- and post-consultation and management of dental needs. Our office also provides dental clearance for cardiac surgeries including heart transplants and valve replacements. We offer BOTOX for TMD/TMJ therapy, office teeth whitening, and cosmetic and implant rehabilitation.”
