Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "At Whole Health Dentistry, we are passionate about saving lives and are dedicated to providing oral health care that treats the whole person.

While tooth decay and gum disease are the more obvious signs of poor oral health, chronic low-grade infection in the mouth can elevate systemic inflammation in the body, playing a key role in the development of many chronic diseases. Preventing and treating oral diseases can have a profound impact on your overall health.

Our team, led by Dr. Susan Smith, DMD, offers preventative oral health care strategies that address whole body health. We use an integrative approach to treating oral inflammation with an overall goal of helping reduce systemic inflammation.
