We often hear from patients that our examinations and attention to detail is over the top and that’s exactly what we love to hear. Dr. Daxon is a faculty member at the Dawson Academy, which educates dentists, dental hygienist and dental assistants all over the world and that’s exactly why our dentists are different.
A primary principle of Dawson dentistry is “to do what is necessary to achieve a long-term maintainable health and comfort as well as the creation and maintenance of a beautiful, natural smile.”
Function Over Form
Although we all want a gorgeous smile, we must realize that perfectly made fillings, crowns, and bridges won’t last long if the environment they are placed in isn’t engineered correctly. Dawson dentists are specialists trained to carefully look at bite problems and disorders of the jaw joints. A healthy mouth depends on a comfortable and stable bite. Numerous facial and muscular disorders stem from a dysfunctional bite so every restoration is carefully considered. When we sit down to prioritize your treatment plan, we pay special attention how your top and bottom teeth are married.
Never Stop Learning
Dentistry is an exciting field, and evidence based treatment planning can only be achieved with continual education. The Dawson Academy provides their dentists with updated information about materials and strategies. This ensures that a Dawson dentist can always give their patients the best treatment options based on real world clinical studies and ongoing research. Educating our patients about root causes of dental problems as well as possible solutions gives them the tools to make informed decisions.
The Standard Isn’t Good Enough
Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime and we want to make that a reality. When fillings break, we don’t just replace them without wondering why it happened. Everything in the mouth is intimately connected and we have a professional obligation to provide the highest level of care. So, when we bring new patients into our practice, every aspect of their medical and dental history is carefully assessed. As our patients come back and become a permanent part of our family, we treat them as such and they begin to understand that our systems really do provide care above and beyond the norm.
