“The mouth is a key piece that unfortunately has been neglected over the years, but we’re finding out more and more that if we can get the mouth healthy, we can avoid a lot of issues in the body. And that’s super important to me” – Dr. Hester, Owner and Founder of Bend Family Dentistry
At Bend Family Dentistry, we believe in the deep connection between oral health and overall wellness. Our approach to dental care goes beyond just treating teeth and gums; we focus on comprehensive health.
Here’s how we integrate this philosophy into our practice:
Preventative Care: The First Line of Defense
At Bend Family Dentistry, we prioritize early detection and treatment of oral health issues like cavities and gum disease. Our proactive approach includes regular check-ups and educating patients on effective oral hygiene. By focusing on preventative care, we aim to maintain overall health and reduce the need for more invasive treatments later.
“Preventative care in dentistry is getting ahead of it. We address potential issues like cavities, periodontal disease, and gingivitis before they require more significant treatment” -Dr. John Covalt, Bend Family Dentistry
Patient-Centered Treatment Plans
We believe in empowering our patients with knowledge and choice.This approach ensures that you, as our patient, are actively involved in maintaining not just your oral health but your overall well-being.
“When we present a treatment plan, it’s all about what’s best for the patient. We provide all possible options and guide them to make informed decisions about their oral health.” – Dr. John Covalt, Bend Family Dentistry
Holistic Dental Philosophy
Dr. Hester, our founder, advocates for a holistic approach to dentistry. He often says, “Our aim is to catch and address dental issues before they become visible. By improving oral health, we are contributing to better systemic health”. This reflects our understanding that a healthy mouth is a key component of a healthy body.
At Bend Family Dentistry, we’re not just caring for your teeth; we’re caring for you as a whole person. Our commitment to preventive care, patient education, and a holistic treatment approach underscores the essential connection between a healthy mouth and a healthy body. We invite you to join us in embracing this comprehensive approach to dental and overall health.
