Your mouth is connected to your body, and so it should be treated as such.
While it is not always possible to completely avoid intervention, it is certainly possible to be kind about it. Education of adults and children is his essential task and responsibility. He spends time helping his patients decide what is right for them. Proper home care is the single most important factor that determines if teeth will be around for a lifetime. He wants your child to have the tools necessary to grow up with a healthy, beautiful smile and a healthier and stronger body..
Besides general gentle dentistry, he is addressing the problems that have to do with:
- Breastfeeding difficulties
- Growth and development in children
- Sleep-disordered breathing in children and adults
- Jaw joint related disorders
- Chronic oral inflammatory diseases known to increase risk factors for common medical problems
Driven by his passion, he has been studying Oral – Systemic connection for nearly two decades. His path has taken him from being an orthodontic patient, and, as a result, to a TMJ patient, to a dentist that helps people with jaw pain. The understanding of connection between mouth and body is a foundation for his practice.
It is this understanding that empowers him to assist moms and infants with breastfeeding as well as help children with growth and development. The ALF approach is the most “whole body” friendly dental treatment with benefits that last a lifetime. Building bridges between medical and dental communities brings results for his patients that were not possible before.
As a dentist in Stamford, CT, he tries to stay on the cusp of current knowledge by being member of organizations that provide invaluable information and encourage forward thinking.
To be of service is a meaningful, gratifying, and fulfilling experience that begins anew every single day. His debt of gratitude is to his many mentors who spent the time and energy to teach and share the information.
