A primary principle of Dawson dentistry is to do what is necessary to achieve long-term maintainable health and comfort as well as the creation and maintenance of a beautiful, natural smile. Dawson dentists are trained to use the WIDIOM rule, which means, “would I do it on me?” This concept requires careful examination and treatment planning designed to help patients understand every problem so priorities of treatment can be put into proper perspective.
Over-treatment is never acceptable and hurried, incomplete examinations or ineffective treatment planning too often results in dissatisfaction. With proper treatment planning, patients can know in advance everything needed to make a good decision about their dental treatment and to make choices when options for treatment can be safely made.
Dawson dentists are trained in an analysis of bite problems and related disorders of the TMJ’s (jaw joints). The goal is always a completely comfortable bite and a peaceful neuromuscular system. Dawson dentists pride themselves on being physicians of the total masticatory system so, as such, they are often considered the “go to” dentist who can solve problems of comfort or function that are above the level of usual and customary services.
Through the Dawson Academy, a provider of dental courses, Dawson dentists continually update their knowledge of the latest materials and methods so they are able to provide the finest in smile design that can stand the long test of time. There is no more beautiful smile than one that is in harmony with the anatomy and contour of the individual face. Dawson dentistry provides the most natural beauty available for dental restorations.
