We believe that there is no better way to heal than from within. Our treatment philosophy, therefore, starts with YOU! and maximizing your own body’s ability to control or cure the disease condition.
Yair and his team approach your condition holistically and focus on healthy diet changes, mindfulness habit modification and therapeutic management of both oral and systemic inflammation. We treat through education so that you can not only make the best decisions for your treatment, but maintain the results and prevent future diseases from occurring.
If and when surgery does become indicated, we manage your case with minimally invasive and curative interventions that will allow you to better manage your own oral health at home and with the aid of your general dental team.
At Lenga Perio we don’t just “talk the talk”… we “walk the walk”! The recommendations we make are the ones we know work, because they are the ones we practice each and every day. We live the healthy living lifestyle and know what it takes to make it a routine part of your life.
You can count on each member of the team to act like your personal coach in getting you to where you want to be. Talk to us about your goals, your expectations and your dreams so we can help you achieve them. Living your best life is within reach. Let us show you.
