Welcome to Swiss Biologic Dentistry! If you’re new here, I look forward to getting to know you; and, I’m sure you want to get to know me better too. And if you’re a regular, you can also get to know me better! I grew up in Tucson, where I ended up attending the University of Arizona (Bear down!). After college, I received my doctorate in dentistry in 2011 from the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League institution and top 10 dental school in the world (go Quakers!). A decade in dentistry; where did the time go!
While I was taught traditional dentistry by some of the best in the country, I felt something was missing from the bigger picture of oral health. And thankfully six years ago, I was offered the associate job at Integrative Dental Associates, one of Phoenix’s best biological dental practices. It was here that the final pieces fell into place and the light bulb went off: True oral health requires looking at the body as a whole!

Why Dental Implants:
If you have a tooth that needs to be extracted or even a missing tooth, dental implants are by far the best option for you. A dental implant is as close to having your original tooth as you can get in terms of functionality, longevity, aesthetics, and bio-compatibility.
We only use 100% metal-free ceramic zirconia implants and we can usually perform the procedure in one visit. If you require extraction and then an implant, the procedure begins with the extraction of the tooth, then blood draws to extract Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF), and perhaps a small amount of graft material from your jaw is placed into the implant site. The implant is placed, sutured up, and the healing process begins. After about six months, the bone should integrate around the implant site, and the crown and abutment will be ready to be placed. A little time, a couple of visits, and voila, a new tooth! Learn more about the implants we provide on our site: https://www.swissbiologic.com/implants
