About

Bio

I am a general dentist in Penndel, Pennsylvania with a single-practioner practice since 1990. Our office is unique in the area because we start with your general health history as well as that of your family and relate that to what is happening in your mouth. We do this because there is ever-growing evidence that the health of your mouth is linked to various systemic problems such as high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, certain cancers, lung infections, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer's disease and low birthweight babies. We combine this approach with cutting-edge technology that gives the best results. We have a friendly, family atmosphere office and welcome new patients. Our website can give you more information: thetopdocdmd.com.
