Core Story


"I base every dental treatment decision on the most current research using the best technology available. I have spent a lot of time, money and effort compiling what I call my Core Story. The Core Story shows everyone the importance of the health of your teeth, gums and mouth" - Dr. J. 


     The mouth is the gateway to of the rest of the body. Therefore, if you have an infection or problem in your mouth that means you have an infection or problem (possibly life threatening) throughout the rest of your body. The Core Story proves that your smile is your #1 asset by making you healthier, happier and ultimately improving your overall quality of life.


  • Health- Recent years' research has shown that periodontal disease is closely linked with overall health, as it can create further complications such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.  In addition, gum disease during pregnancy often results in pre-term and low birth weight infants.

  • Happiness/Relationships- Having a nice smile increases an individual's confidence levels and helps with relationships. For example, an individual with a nice and healthy smile will be confident enough to seek employment without the fear of being turned down because of unhealthy teeth. 

  • More Money- ​Individuals with a better smile have a better chance at employment and success. Their good state of mind and their confidence levels are high. On the other hand, individuals with poor teeth tend to get embarrassed to go to job interviews in fear of being turned down. Studies show that you have to get your teeth fixed to get better jobs.
