Modern dentistry may offer a wealth of information and high-tech tools, but many general dental services lack the in-depth investigation into the underlying causes of dental disease. Dr. Christopher Naranjo is a biological dentist committed to the highest standard of care. His dedication to the health and well-being of patients has motivated him to receive extensive education beyond dental school. When treating patients, we do not focus solely on the mechanics of care (drilling and filling). We get to know the individual behind the smile, because this is where the real magic happens.
21st Century dentistry brings a combination of high-tech diagnostics and materials, but this does not take the place of high-touch care, in which patient and doctor work together to promote oral and systemic health. We consider not only how a restoration will function in the mouth, but also how the materials will influence the immune system. We look at the dental problems faced by individual patients, and question what nutritional deficiencies or health conditions may be leading to certain predispositions.
To us, integrative dentistry means that we consider the various aspects of health as they relate to the oral condition, and we treat dental problems according to the needs of the entire body. It means that we, as your dental team, are a part of a whole health-care family that collaborate, when necessary, to promote total health. Dr. Naranjo understands his role in this comprehensive system, and has developed excellent relationships with many other health practitioners in our local area. Working with nearby medical doctors, naturopaths, osteopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists and more, Dr. Naranjo facilitates the level of integrative care that patients require for their best health.
The teeth, gums, and other oral structures are vital, integrated parts of a whole system. With great respect for the body as a whole, we address our patients’ dental needs with this in mind.
