For a general dentistry practice with cosmetic expertise and a wide range of treatment options, look no further than Model Smiles Dentistry. Dr. Albert Chow, renowned through the area for his gentle touch, compassionate manner, and professionalism, has been proudly providing excellent dental care in his practice since 1999. We offer everything from routine teeth cleanings to and root canals to more complex cosmetic and medical treatments. If you suffer from yellowing or decaying teeth, receding gums (which make the area more prone to infection), or an uneven smile, we can help. Veneers, pinhole gum rejuvenation, whitening treatments, and nearly invisible braces alternatives are just a few of the cosmetic options we offer in our calm, comfortable office setting.
We also understand that some of our patients have needs that are more medical than they are cosmetic. From TMJ to sleep apnea, oral hygiene and the structure of the mouth are often correlated to other medical issues that can cause serious disruptions to your life. Existing complications and conditions can also make it difficult for some people to seek dental care – intense anxiety or a developmental disability can make it all but impossible to undergo even a routine cleaning without sedation, and cancer treatments frequently cause disruptions in oral health. We understand that each patient is unique, and we will work with you to address your individual needs as best we can.
Holistic Dentistry: Why It Matters
Both holistic and non-holistic general dentists are licensed through the same board, so there is not a specific, quantifiable difference between the two. While a holistic dentist and a non-holistic dentist would be qualified to perform the same procedures and would have a mastery of the same information, the difference is one of approach – a holistic dentist looks beyond the immediate dental issues to the underlying causes, and takes into consideration every aspect of the patient’s overall wellbeing. Oral health is inextricably connected to the health of the entire body, and this knowledge is the framework for everything we do.
When you visit our warm, comfortable office serving the Malibu area, you can rest assured that our team will not see you as just another patient – we strive to understand and address your unique needs and concerns as an individual. When you come in with a problem, we won’t just fix it; we’ll sit down with you to talk about the underlying causes, all your treatment options, and preventative care moving forward. We firmly believe that the best patient is a well-informed patient, and we won’t cut any corners in your treatment.
