Complete Health for a Lifetime

Comprehensive general dentistry is a philosophical approach to dental health that incorporates all aspects of your dental condition to create a life long plan for health. When Dr. Kelly establishes a relationship with you, he is thorough in discovering your condition and sharing it with you. Comprehensive treatment plans are not limited to immediate needs. While Dr. Kelly typically must address a concern or need in the present, he creates treatment pathways for the future with a goal of lifelong health for you. The comprehensive diagnostic and treatment planning process is diverse depending on patient’s needs, desires, and priorities. It can range from a proactive prevention schedule to a complex plan that moves through phases of controlling active disease, restoring damage, and lifelong maintenance. In all cases, Dr. Kelly’s philosophy is conservative and preventative.

Imagine your Dental Experience.

It is possible to provide dentistry that is ideal, without emergencies, and without compromise. Dr. Kelly has made a commitment to his patients to provide appropriate, complete health solutions that are individualized to his patient's priorities. He considers himself a health coach and gives encouragement to invest in dentistry that is a good experience with a desirable outcome. Patients that discover the possibilities of comprehensive dentistry usually enjoy coming to the dentist making Dr. Kelly's practice a pleasant place to recieve care.

More than "just teeth".

The comprehensive dentistry approach taken by Dr. Kelly is especially holistic in nature. Contemporary research has found proven links between dental disease and many systemic diseases including diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. Managing chronic oral inflammation is proving to be essential to total health and a longer life. We strive to diagnosis, educate, and treat patients in our ORAL INFLAMMATION PREVENTION CENTER in vauable way that is "more than a cleaning". Through thorough examinations of relevant tissues in the head and neck and emphasizing the biting system as a whole conditions of the muscles and joints can be addressed. In our TEMPO-MANDIBULAR CENTER we treat patients with muscular pain, head aches, painful and dysfunctional TMJ. We also study the bite to provide dentistry in that feels great, functions well and will last in regards to how the bite works.
