Our Mission: We are dedicated to partner with you, our patient, providing respect, compassion and comfort to achieve overall systemic health through science and leading-edge technology. We are committed to the quality of your LIFE through the health of your SMILE.

As you may be aware, the past 10 years have provided much insight into what has come to be called... "The Oral / Systemic Connection". Increasing evidence points to a link between chronic inflammatory periodontal infections and systemic diseases such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Some forms of cancer and other diseases
  • The National Institute of Health (NIH) and other research facilities are aggressively pursuing this link as well. For more information regarding the Oral/Systemic Connection, visit the following links online:

  • National Institutes of Health
  • American Dental Association
  • Academy of Periodontology
  • American Dental Hygienists' Association

  • As we continue to learn more about the severity of periodontal infections and how closely linked they are to your overall health, having detailed information about your genetic susceptibility (MyPerioID(R)) and the bacteria that are present in our mouth (MyPerioPath(R)) will be critical in determining your oral and overall general health.

    Introducing MyPerioPath(R):
    This test indentifies and measures certain bacteria in your mouth that cause gingivitis (early stage gum disease) and periodontal disease (mature gum disease).

    Introducing MyPerioID(R):
    This test determines if you are more likely to develop more serious gum tissue infections, such as inflammatory periodontal disease.

    Introducing OraRisk(R) HPV:
    This test determines if you are at increased risk for HPV-related oral and throat cancers.

    These new, quick, and non-invasive tests deliver information that will enable your dental professional to better determine the appropriate treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

    LifeSMILES utilizes OralDNA™ Labs who strive to develop clinically useful diagnostic tests based on DNA-PCR technology for use by dental professionals. Their goal is to drive early detection and more predictable treatment outcomes in the clinical setting.
