Just like most professions, there’s a range of skill levels among dentists based on type of advanced education, training, and philosophy of patient care. The Dawson Academy is an advanced dental education facility where dentists teach dentists to be better dentists.
Founded by Dr. Peter Dawson, The Dawson Academy teaches the Concept of Complete Dentistry. Although more time consuming for dental practices, Complete Dentistry results in more consistent, predictable and healthy outcomes for your oral health.
Dr. Dawson is one of the most respected and honored dentists in the history of dentistry. With a passion for teaching dentists to do it “right”, he developed the Concept of Complete Dentistry to provide patients with healthy, beautiful smiles that would function properly and serve them comfortably for the rest of their lives. With two best-selling books on the Concept of Complete Dentistry, Dr. Dawson has influenced tens of thousands of dentists to pursue a better outcome for their patients.
What is A Complete Dentist?
At The Dawson Academy, dental professionals like Dr Cullen learn to examine and treat teeth as part of the overall oral system, not just as standalone elements. This unique approach helps dentists identify causes of problems, rather than simply treating the symptoms.
For example, you may have a chipped tooth you would like repaired. The Dawson Academy’s philosophy teaches dentists to not only repair the tooth but determine the underlying cause(s) that led to the chipped tooth in the first place. This comprehensive approach to treatment of dental problems results in long-term stability, optimal oral health and beauty – that lasts.
In addition to hands-on clinical treatments, The Dawson Academy teaches dentists to treat each patient individually. Every patient receives a thorough examination so the dentist can better understand the patient’s specific wants and needs. This examination will provide you and your dentist with a complete picture of what is going on in and around your teeth, so that a comprehensive treatment plan can be developed. The benefits pay dividends to patients for the rest of their lives. This may sound like a no-brainer, but this approach, for whatever reason, is not practiced by many dentists.
