Q: How have you mentored or inspired women who are following in your footsteps?
A: As a women-owned business, we are surrounded by like-minded women who can create mentorship opportunities for others beginning their careers, a critical step in building strong, confident female leaders. We encourage our team’s personal and professional development, helping them become better dental care providers and the best people they can be. Our values foster self-worth through education, relationship-building, individualized patient care and community outreach.
Q: Do women have different oral health needs than men?
A: Women do face unique oral health concerns as changing hormone levels can increase the risk for issues with your mouth, teeth or gums. Women also tend to be the gatekeepers to their families’ health and their own well-being often takes a back seat. We are committed to helping our patients live healthier lives, empowering them through our “Mouth, Mind and Body” philosophy to incorporate dentistry into their overall health plans.
Q: How do you employ new technology to help your patients?
A: Rather than treating patients reactively, addressing issues only as they arise, we stay at the forefront of the latest tools and techniques, using today’s scientific advances to provide conservative and proactive treatment options. We study each patient’s oral biome to uncover a comprehensive picture that includes eating habits, health challenges, breathing patterns and alignment, among other variables, that impact oral and systemic health. Our goal is not only to create beautiful smiles but to help our patients achieve optimum overall health.
