Better Oral and Overall Health

At Lawson Family Dentistry, we focus on providing integrative dental medicine that takes your oral and overall health into consideration. Our team screens and identifies possible problems or deficiencies in your overall health that may be leading to issues with your wellbeing, or to the destruction of your dentition. Integrative dental medicine also encompasses a thorough medical and medication history so we know how to help you successfully prevent oral health issues.

The Benefits of Integrated Care

In addition to dental health specialists, we also coordinate with family physicians, ENTs, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, sleep and endocrine doctors, and others to help decrease inflammation in the mouth and improve airway function (leading to better functioning organs and a decrease in heartburn and reflux). We work to aid in controlling blood sugars, quitting tobacco use, and helping patients age more gracefully (the skin is the largest organ in the body, and if it’s not getting enough oxygen, we all prematurely age)!

With our integrated approach to improving oral and overall health, our team can help you enjoy a higher quality of life through more than just your smile. To learn more, schedule a consulation with us by calling Lawson Family Dentistry in Urbandale, IA, today at 515-278-4366.
