We aim to improve your oral/systemic health relationship with every visit. Our team has a true passion for dentistry, thrives on teamwork and education, and is fulfilled by helping patients achieve & maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. We believe that your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body, so the state of your oral health will influence the health of the rest of your body. Our team strives to increase your personal oral health knowledge – giving you a better understanding of the exceptionally high quality of care we provide, but also to gift you with a sense of warmth and delight with every interaction we have. We are lifelong relationship builders, and strive to build a “mutual affection society” between us and all of the people we are fortunate to have trust us with their smiles.
Our team motto is summed up by the following quote:
“To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Holistic Dental philosophy hinges on preventive dentistry. When disease and damaging conditions are avoided, or at least caught at their earliest stages of development, your natural teeth and gums remain healthy, strong and beautiful. Beginning with your new patient evaluation, and continuing with each visit, Dr. Scott and her team rely on experience and technology to ensure your optimal health, while educating you about how to remain healthy and avoiding the conditions that damage your teeth.
Your overall health and your dental health work hand-in-hand to determine your quality of life. Oral health has been conclusively linked to a number of other health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease and obesity. By focusing on optimizing your oral health, you can directly impact your overall quality of life. Furthermore, the early diagnosis of dental problems may shed light on other health concerns before they advance.
Many of the products and services you have available to you are influenced by our natural and integrative approach. When it comes to dental fillings, you will never be offered silver amalgam fillings, which contain mercury, and if you want or need to remove your amalgam fillings, we have special tools and SMART certification in place to ensure your safety as well as the safe disposal of the mercury.
In fact, when it comes to any dental restoration, we will always opt for a metal free solution if available, and educate you as to your options. You will receive digital radiographs that utilize safer, lower levels of radiation to give you instant x-ray images of your teeth. These images, our intraoral camera, pH testing, and Oral DNA Test allow you to see and understand your condition and your treatment options. This way, you can make the decision that is best for you. We also promote bio-compatibility testing when indicated, so that we can make sure your body likes the materials we use.
When injury or genetics get in the way of your having a natural looking, natural functioning teeth, Dr. Scott and her team utilize state-of-the-art cosmetic and restorative dentistry to give you the natural smile you desire, and help you feel normal again.
