Dr. Leonard Hess is the Clinical Director of The Dawson Academy, the world's premier center for continuing education for dentists. He brings his advanced knowledge, expertise, and experience to our patients for exceptional outcomes.
Dr. Hess spends over 80 days a year traveling internationally teaching and lecturing other dentists on the concepts of cosmetic reconstruction, TMJ, and Complete Dentistry. Our patients benefit from his in-depth understanding of occlusion and how to restore a comfortable bite.
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.Learn More
