The condition of your mouth affects EVERYTHING!

If your gums are inflamed, the germs causing that inflammation and their by-products can get into your body through the blood vessels in your mouth and through your lungs.

Heart attack
Pancreatic and other cancers

And did you know that oral DNA testing is available to show us how to best deal with problems with your gums?

We take great pride in our positive minded coaching approach to helping you rid yourself of the burden of inflammation. Learn more about oral systemic connection and let us help you prevent oral diseases! Our office offers :

Checks for inflammation

Sleep Breathing Disorders

How’d You Sleep?

Snoring. There’s really nothing funny about the oft-parodied act. At its very least, it can be the source of stress between bed partners and, at its worst, well, read on.

Snoring, a sleep breathing disorder, is a sign that you are not getting enough oxygen at a time when your brain, heart, and other critical organs need it badly.

Unfortunately, snoring is only one sign that you may not be getting enough oxygen at night. Some people actually stop breathing for a few seconds many times during their sleep! There are other silent sleep breathing disorders that could deprive your body and its critical organs of the air that it needs. And the consequences of not refreshing and re-energizing your body at night can be very serious over a long period of time.

People with sleep breathing disorders are at increased risk for:

Heart Disease


High Blood Pressure

Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD)

Memory disorders including Alzheimer’s disease

Learning Disabilities
