“Declare the past, diagnose the present, foretell the future.” This statement by ancient Greek physician and “father of medicine,” Hippocrates, reflects the treatment philosophy of Van Dyke Distinctive Dentistry. We believe that your oral health gives us insight into your overall wellbeing, and treating your dental problems can alleviate, or diagnose, whole body health issues.
Proper oral hygiene is a vital component of keeping you in top-notch physical condition. Taking good care of your gums and teeth can protect you from systemic issues, such as oral bacteria causing inflammation of the heart and plaque buildup in blood vessels. Some dental symptoms indicate manifestations of illness and disease in the body. For instance, bleeding gums, dry mouth, severe cavities, and fungal infections may signify diabetes or leukemia.
Dr. Robert Van Dyke is an experienced, compassionate dentist who believes in treating you—not just your symptoms. Dr. Van Dyke keeps current with dental procedures and techniques by taking numerous continuing education courses every year. And he’s been an instructor at the world-renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advance Dental Studies . He’s also a member of the American Academy of Private Physicians and the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health.
