At Joel D. Singer, DMD, we provide dental care with a focus on your overall health and well-being. We are unlike other dental practices in that we don’t treat your mouth as separate from your body. We understand that the mouth and the body are connected, and, in many ways, what is happening in your mouth relates to what is occurring in your body and vice versa. Dr. Singer still performs many of the same dental treatments you might find in other offices, but his approach may vary from what you have seen previously.
