Dr. Pasquantonio and her team are not the typical dental office. They not only see themselves as oral health specialists, but as whole- body wellness practitioners. Dr. Pasqantonio states:"The mouth, including the teeth, are connected to your whole body and your body is connected to the mouth and teeth. What happens in the mouth and with the teeth will affect your whole body. A dentist must practice with this in mind and a dental patient has to always remember dental/oral health affects their whole body."

Dr. Pasquantonio and her team know that 90% of systemic conditions are linked to symptoms in the mouth. The mouth is a crucial part of any diagnostic process for physicians and dentists when it comes to overall wellness. If symptoms such as bleeding gums, fungal infections, decay, inflammation or missing teeth present in the mouth, it could be a warning sign that a patient is at risk for things like heart disease, diabetes or osteoporosis.

Because of the responsibility to patient’s health, Dr. Pasquantonio and her team have always taken diagnosis of dental disease down to the microscopic level; stopping the disease process before it starts. The newest tool being used at the office is a caries (cavity) risk assessment program developed by CariFree that is shown to decrease incidents of tooth decay by up to 74%. The system is based on a medical model of risk assessment called CAMBRA or Caries Management by Risk Assessment.

The CariFree system requires the dental professional to assess each and every patient’s risk factors for the dental caries disease and then develop a personalized treatment plan to systematically lower their risk. The CariFree diagnostic tools leverage biofilm testing (to determine the levels of cavity-causing bacteria in the patient’s mouth) as well as a risk assessment questionnaire. Based on the assessment Dr. Pasquantonio can tell a patient what their statistical likelihood is of developing tooth decay over the next 12 months. Patients can then measurably lower their risk for decay by utilizing professional products and behavior modification. Dr. Pasquantonio also tests for the bacteria that cause gum infection via a simple microscopic test that takes only 2 minutes.

When a patients risk for decay and other oral health issues are lowered, the risk of diseases like heart disease and diabetes are mitigated. In addition, keeping a close eye on changes in the mouth with these assessment tools makes early detection a priority. Pasquantonio and her team provide a patient centered approach to dentistry that will direct each patient to his or her most healthy self. Dr. Pasquantonio says: "Any infection, anywhere in your body, including your mouth, will drag you down physically. Most patients are amazed at the increased energy they have once health is established in the mouth."
