About

Bio

Dr. Urbankova practices philosophy of biomimetic or minimally invasive dentistry. This approach is founded on conserving your tooth structure rather than radically removing it. Minimally invasive dentistry follows a new paradigm in dentistry, as it requires minimal surgical intervention, and has long-term benefits. Rather than invasive treatments that often lead to loss of tooth structure, complications, tooth loss, and possible overall health problems, minimally invasive dentistry's goal is to preserve your teeth and leads to a prolonged life-span of the patient's natural dentition and smile. She focuses on achieving and maintaining healthy teeth and gums using laser regenerative techniques, preserving teeth from root canals and tooth loss due to complications or failure of dental treatme
