I am a coach. I am a success planner who happens to be a dentist. For over 30 years I have focused on preventing all cavities and all gums infections for the rest of my patients’ lives. Most people go to the dentist and they never really learn what causes their cavities. When they get a little older, they start having gum infections and they never learn why. And then they get a little older and their teeth start to break and they never learn why. Then they start pulling their teeth and they never learn why they broke down.
I believe people want to need a dentist less as they get older, not more as they get older. That is why the focus of my practice is to help people prevent all cavities and all gum infections for the rest of their lives.

If these joints break down, that can be reflected in a long list of health problems, including but not limited to:
- Airway issues

If you’re experiencing bleeding or swelling in your gums, a bad taste in your mouth, or loose teeth, you could be displaying signs of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a serious condition in which the gums and tissues surrounding the teeth become infected with bacteria. As the infection spreads, it can affect other bodily systems and organs. Periodontal disease has been known to lead to other health complications such as heart disease, respiratory infections, diabetes, premature birth and kidney damage. Dr. Dean uses a state of the art nonsurgical technique called the OraVital™ System. This works beautifully to help control gum disease in 90% of the cases in just four weeks without surgical cutting.
