Dental Fitness Program - Middletown, NY
Overall Wellness Along with Oral Health
At the dental office of Dr. Scott Udoff, our goal is to create an environment where our patients not only achieve excellent oral health and wellbeing, but maintain it for life as well. We believe that the “cleaning” appointment is a valuable opportunity for us to discuss any concerns we see and discuss helpful tips with you for how to improve your oral healthcare routine. Therefore, we more appropriately call our “cleaning” appointments recare appointments. That’s why we implemented the DFP (Dental Fitness Program), created by Dr. Michael Schuster of “The Schuster Center for Professional Development”, for every hygiene visit. This revolutionary approach give you and your holistic dentist the ability to compare your hygiene results from year to year, closely tracking changes in tissue health. It works like this:
- Our dental hygienist performs a thorough periodontal exam.
- Throughout the exam, she utilizes our voice-activated periodontal probing program to record important factors like probing depth, bleeding, and the accumulation of plaque.
- The patient is given a final score. If the healthy percentage is over 92%, the patient’s natural teeth are safe from harm. If the percentage is under 82%, their health, strong smile, and overall wellbeing are all at risk.
- Udoff and our staff can recommend changes to your oral hygiene routine, discuss nutritional factors and recommend nutritional supplementations to improve oral and systemic health. It’s up to you whether to implement these changes, of course, but we want to leave you feeling informed about your options.
Please contact Dr. Udoff’s dental office here in Middletown, NY today if you have any questions our team can help you with. We look forward to introducing you to the benefits of minimally invasive, functional dentistry.
