Following graduation from dental college, some dentists choose to apply for a specialty residency program. If accepted, they spend three to four years in their residency with a specialty focus. We are extremely proud of the specialists we have on staff who serve our patients.
Why is it important for you to have access to specialists?
The health of your body is dramatically impacted by the health of your teeth and gums. Over the past 20 years, researchers have discovered more and more evidence of the connection between your oral health and your general health. If your gums are not healthy, bacteria in the mouth have easy access to your bloodstream. Missing teeth can significantly reduce your ability to eat nutritious foods like raw vegetables, fruits, and grains. Missing teeth can also throw the balance of your bite off, causing grinding, headaches, tooth wear, and gum disease.
