If you ask Dr. Shannon McCarthy, she’ll say that she is not a “tooth mechanic.” Instead, she says: “I do fix teeth, and I do so very well, but any good dentist can do that.” Dr. McCarthy sees you as an entire organism, totally interconnected with each system affecting the others. Keeping the mouth healthy is so important to keeping the rest of the body healthy. Many systemic health effects can be manifested in the mouth and the Dr. McCarthy is often the first one to notice these health problems by examining your mouth. Her dedication to holistic dentistry helps our patients smile from head to toe, and if you feel anxious about visiting the dentist, she and the rest of our team will do everything they can to ensure a calm and relaxing visit.
