Join The ProHEALTH Dental Team
ProHEALTH Dental was founded in 2016 to break down the historical barrier between medicine and dentistry to improve oral and overall health. Recognized clinical literature in both the medical and dental communities have clearly documented that good oral health can improve total wellness, save significant healthcare expenditures, and cause people of all ages to live healthier and more productive lives. We are dedicated to educating the community about this important correlation, as many patients are unaware of the connection between poor oral health and chronic diseases including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, Alzheimer’s and certain cancers.
ProHEALTH Dental was founded to establish state-of-the-art multi-specialty dental practices in partnership with health care systems and medical groups to address the important relationship between oral health and overall health.
