OUR HOLISTIC APPROACH
At Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, our holistic approach makes us unique in offering friendly, gentle family and cosmetic dental health services in the Fairlawn and Akron, Ohio, area that has its primary focus on preventing problems.
We understand that oral health affects the whole body and is a crucial part of our general well-being that enhances and contributes to our health. We try to listen to our patients to learn what their dental needs and expectations are before formulating a custom-designed treatment plan to address their dental concerns and improve and optimize their functionality, esthetics, and entire oral health that directly impacts their overall health.
In contrast to some other offices, we don’t address problems in a silo, not realizing that fixing one problem will cause another. The team at Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry studies the mouth as a whole and resolves problems at the root cause to prevent any harm and create the healthiest conditions for teeth and the entire oral cavity with successful and sustainable results.
In a sense, a holistic approach is preventative in nature. By addressing the root cause of the harm in the oral cavity and creating a healthy functionality for the entire mouth, we eliminate all the future unforeseen dental problems and dental work. Without this holistic preventative mindset, patients would be facing complex and costly dental work that is never-ending!
I have had a fear of dentists since I was small but I have a tooth that needed looked at. I recently moved and received a nice letter and magnet for Arsmiles and decided to give it a shot. Everyone in that office was so kind and understanding. Dr. Chegini is very knowledgeable and really wanted to get to know me. She looked at my tooth but she wanted to see my whole mouth. She was very kind and made me feel comfortable knowing I was anxious. I have never felt so at ease in a dentist chair. I still have some anxiety but I know my continued visits to Arsmiles will help ease it even more. I recommend this place. They are very kind and personable.
Our mission is to implement strategies that facilitate the delivery of comprehensive oral care that positively impacts whole-body health.
The holistic mindset allows us to fully understand and emphasize on the oral systemic connection. Oral health is linked to whole-body health, and conditions such as periodontal disease can cause patients to experience other medical problems, including:
- Heart disease
- Increased risks of strokes
- Low birth weight babies in pregnant women
