Welcome to Health-Focused Hygiene
We engage each person in their own care through the power of Dental Fitness Examinations – a powerful communication tool to help each patient understand their present level of health. We help each person to become involved in determining the best path for their care and the best steps to take for their daily home care.
Programs are customized to the INDIVIDUAL needs, goals and values of each individual, helping us to assure the proper level of care is given to each person – not over-treating, and also not missing opportunities to help them become healthier. In our experience, and in the experience of other offices that follow this approach, individuals who are able to stay 90-100% free of plaque and bleeding gums rarely develop gum disease or cavities. As you get closer to 100% systemic risks (heart disease, stroke, diabetes, etc.) decrease.
We are keenly aware of the link between dental disease and systemic diseases like diabetes, heart attack, cancer and stroke. In fact, we now have level A scientific evidence that oral bacteria are a key CAUSE of atherosclerosis. We are here to help!
With a simple test through OraVital®, we can specifically determine if any of the associated periodontal bacteria are present in someone’s mouth and design a customized solution to get rid of them.
