Patients often ask me what is my motivation for taking care of my patients. My goal is always my patients complete health--- I always ask about any chronic conditions they have or family history of chronic diseases to which they may be prone.
I was diagnosed as pre diabetic at age 28. I basically took it as phew! dogged a bullet. That was that. At age 42 I was diagnosed as type 2 diabetic. Now I had to take Metformin. Most people see dentists more regularly that their physicians. That is why I discuss their chronic conditions, any family conditions they are prone to but don't have yet and how important it is to keep their mouth healthy because the condition of their mouth worsen some of these conditions. That is why I made it my mission to not just treat cavities but to make my patients healthy. That is why our mission is complete health dentistry.
