What is Complete Dentistry?

There's a way to practice dentistry that's predictable, profitable, and provides an extremely high level of personal and professional satisfaction. There's no magic to it.

Even in a world that pushes us or tries to push us towards doing usual and customary dentistry, if you take the time to dedicate yourself to learning the aspects of complete dentistry and applying the principles, you can have the kind of practice you dreamed of.


You can have the kind of practice that the best dentists in the world have.

Achieve Your Dental Practice Dream

Now, complete dentistry starts off with having a thorough understanding of the entire masticatory system. As well as, understanding how the joints and the teeth and the muscles and the bone and the airway interact with each other in balance and harmony. Once you understand that, then you can go and look and find signs and symptoms where that harmony is falling short or the part of the puzzle is falling short.

Use a Programmed Treatment Plan

And as you develop these skills, you can then use the programmed treatment plan to work through the steps to figure out the best, most predictable, and least invasive way to solve the cause of the problems, rather than just fixing holes.

So if you're willing to make a complete commitment to understanding the masticatory system, to diagnosing your patient's problems and the cause of those problems, you can have the practice that you want to. It worked in my practice, and if I can do it, anybody can do it.
