Commitment to Comprehensive Care

Dr. Wynnykiw believes that your mouth is a complex system and oral health is an important factor in a patient's overall health and well-being. With a truly comprehensive approach, he will evaluate your oral health in a complete and thorough way.

 

Your mouth is the most important organ of your body.  You use it everyday to speak and communicate.  You use it to take in food and water to nourish your body.  Your mouth is often the first thing people notice about you.

 

A fundamental first step in participating in a dental practice is meeting your dentist for the first time. We believe it is essential that you meet Dr. Wynnykiw at your initial visit with our practice. Dr. Wynnykiw will provide a comprehensive oral evaluation, providing a general tour of the condition and health of your mouth. Then, proceeding tooth by tooth, he will assess the health and stability of all of your mouth's vital structures. Photographs, both inside and outside of your mouth, will be taken to provide a complete picture. Digital radiographs will be taken so that Dr. Wynnykiw can verify the health of your teeth and supporting bone. A full periodontal examination is provided to assess the stability and health of your soft tissues.  

 

From this foundational visit, a thorough treatment plan is devised with you so that your care is completely individualized to your values and goals. Dr. Wynnykiw and our entire team encourage you to ask questions and be directly engaged in the process of restoring and maintaining your oral health. We want you to have the very best in dental care so that your mouth is in prime health for every phase of your life.
