Experience The Difference What Is Complete Dentistry?

So much is missed when a dentist is focused solely on the teeth - and yet, that’s the kind of dentistry many patients have come to expect. The philosophy of complete dentistry follows a unique, yet practical approach and goes beyond the teeth and gums to look at how the oral system works as a whole. Our high standard of care includes a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Hess and a complete examination of the teeth, gums, jaw joints, and muscles. If aspects of the masticatory system are not functioning peacefully, Dr. Hess will apply the latest and most conservative treatments to achieve natural aesthetics, optimum stability, and long-lasting comfort.
