Once your Wellness Doctor understands what procedures need to take place in order to give you optimum oral health, he creates a customized treatment plan that is unique to you. Based on the treatments needed, the Wellness Doctor will build a clinical team consisting of a hygienist, treating dentist, and possible specialists to execute the agreed upon plans.
