At 12 Oaks Dental, we care deeply about the overall health and wellness of our patients from throughout the Austin, TX, area. We know that your oral health is directly connected to your overall health, so our services go far beyond simple dental procedures. Most people see their dentists more often than they do their doctors, so what better place to monitor your overall health and wellness than right here at your dentist office.
How Oral Health Relates to Wellness
Drs. Worob and Barron take a slightly different approach to oral health – their commitment is not simply to address tooth and gum issues, but to take care of each patient as a whole person. This means carefully reviewing each patient’s health history and how it relates to their oral health, and checking to see if tooth and gum problems may be signs of a more systemic problem or vice-versa.
Many of our patients are not aware of how many serious diseases are linked to oral health problems, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease and many more. Disrupted sleep is another issue that is often related to oral health, as are food allergies, which is why we are pleased to include sleep/airway management treatment as well as FIT tests to determine if any food allergies are present in the patient.
More than Just a Dentist Office
At 12 Oaks Dental, we think of ourselves as more than simply a dental practice. We consider ourselves to be part of a team that consists of our staff of dental professionals and our family of patients. The goal is to achieve and maintain the overall health and wellness of our patients. If you or a family member is suffering from an issue such as sleeplessness or a reaction that might indicate a food allergy, talk to your dentist about it. Working together, we can resolve the problem and improve the quality of your life!
