Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Behner "We are here to help you be as healthy as you want to be! What happens in the mouth affects the whole body and changes in the body are often reflected in the mouth. To this end we will discuss such things as sleep, diet, stress, family history of illnesses, life style habits, exercise, nutritional supplements, and past dental experiences. In general, we believe in evaluating lifestyle first, enlisting natural therapies second, and drugs last unless needed to treat an active infection or pain."
