Charlotte dentist Dr. Hess has devoted countless hours to continuing education, including training at the Dawson Academy in Florida, where dentists teach dentists to be better dentists. Founded by world renowned dentist Dr. Peter Dawson, the Dawson Academy gives dentists worldwide the resources and education they need to provide more consistent, predictable and lasting results for patients in their care.
Dawson trained dentists like Dr. Hess believe in the concept of complete dentistry: they take the time during your visit to ensure that all parts of the occlusal system are working together harmoniously. This is part of an effort to address underlying dental problems affecting the balance in the bite, contributing to a current dental concern or laying the foundation for future problems that may also affect the results of any dentistry. This means that patients benefit from the comprehensive knowledge of multiple facets of dentistry and patient care that a Dawson trained dentist has acquired during training and applied to his/her dentistry.
Dawson dentists are trained to analyze the 10 structural and functional factors of the chewing system, enabling them to identify dental problems that are either asymptomatic or may cause problems down the road. Diagnosing these issues early and treating them with conservative dentistry saves patients time, money and possible side effects of a dental concern.
Dr. Hess practices complete dentistry every day in his Monroe, NC dentist office, maintaining his patients’ oral health and helping them achieve the smiles they desire. He strives to provide the best possible dental care and treatment to his patients in a compassionate and caring manner. He offers the range of dental services necessary to address everything from preventive care to complex problems.
A healthy, functional smile is Dr. Hess’ goal for your dental care. This is the foundation of lifelong oral health- an important part of a good quality of life!
