At Synergy Dental, we have a holistic view of total health dentistry. We’re really looking at somebody’s total health and how that relates to their oral health. We try to treat everybody individually. Everybody has individual needs. Everybody has individual concerns. And so our goal at Synergy Dental is just to help you find the solutions to the problems that you have.
It’s not like going to the dentist. It’s like … We have gone to this practice for over 12 years. It’s like going to visit family. When we go there, my kids are very comfortable there. They are excited about going to the dentist. Not many kids are excited about going to the dentist. But when you go in there, you’re getting your teeth adjusted, and it’s like family members working on you. It’s a whole other atmosphere.
His staff make you at ease, both for me and my family. We’ve all been coming there. My husband’s very nervous about going to a dentist, and Dr. Porter has made him very comfortable and so has his staff. So it’s just like we’ve all just kind of followed in suit. And all of my girls have switched over, and they have started seeing Dr. Porter and his staff.
You know, the atmosphere of the whole entire place is just so laid back. There’s not … I guess previous places I went, I had that anxiety of going in. Because you just think, “How are they going to … What are they going to do?” But they’re very good about making sure that you’re numb, checking before they ever start doing anything. I’ve had a couple cavities or crowns put on and whatnot, and it just … They’re just very thorough in the whole setup up to your procedure.
I never have issues getting my kids to go to the dentist. They always want to get their token at the end so that they can go get their little toy. In the front office, they always have a little area for them to kind of play before, just put them at ease. And then once they come back, all the hygienists that we worked with really just know how to put children at ease.
THE HANDS-ON LEARNING LAB™ HELPS YOUR CHILD LEARN HOW TO STAY HEALTHY FOR LIFE
The mission of the Hands-On Learning Lab™ is to involve each child in his or her quest towards optimal oral health, total health and nutrition, and to gain a unique exposure to health careers.
Our Featured Services
We focus on total health from early in your child’s life. We encourage healthy facial development with myofunctional therapy and orthotropics. These treatments help avoid future orthodontic issues and even help kids sleep soundly. Children learn about healthy choices in a Hands-On Learning Lab™, which offers fun activities to promote good nutrition and hygiene. Adults get health-centered care too!
Synergy Dental Center has a total health dentistry approach that will benefit your entire body, not just your teeth! We do not offer fluoride or metal fillings. We can actually remove any amalgam fillings that you currently have with the SMART approach, which keeps you safe from exposure to mercury. We also offer ceramic implants and ozone therapy. Learn more about how these treatments can benefit you when you call today!
If you have sleep apnea, you may benefit greatly from myofunctional therapy, which strengthens your tongue and other muscles in your mouth. It’s a natural way to keep your airway clear when you sleep. We can also provide you with a custom oral appliance. Combine these two treatments and you may avoid the need for a CPAP machine. Let us help you get a good night’s sleep!
