Dr. Julio Hernandez takes a bold approach to ensure the health of his patients and introduces a new program that can decrease tooth decay rates by 74%.
Dr. Julio Hernandez and his team are not the typical dental office. They not only see themselves as oral health specialists, but as whole- body wellness practitioners. Dr. Hernandez states: “As the gateway to the body, the mouth is a key indicator to overall health. Research has shown a clear link between oral health and system health. This is why we combine dentistry, skin care and integrative medicine to take a more holistic approach to patient’s health.” Dr. Hernandez and his team know that 90% of systemic conditions are linked to symptoms in the mouth. The mouth is a crucial part of any diagnostic process for physicians and dentists when it comes to overall wellness. If symptoms such as bleeding gums, fungal infections, decay, inflammation or missing teeth present in the mouth, it could be a warning sign that a patient is at risk for things like heart disease, diabetes or osteoporosis.
