It’s About More Than Just Your Teeth
AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO HEALTH AND DENTISTRY
We believe oral health is intricately connected to the healthy functioning of the body as a whole. Chronic oral infections and gingivitis, for example, may be linked to the onset of other chronic diseases, including heart disease.
Our approach is to focus on the connection between oral health and overall health as a means to achieving optimal physical health.
We treat every visit as an opportunity to assess how your oral health is impacting your overall health. All of our practitioners are trained to recognized health problems while conducting their oral examinations.
If any health issues are identified during a routine examination, they are triaged according to severity. Less serious issues are addressed through in-office treatment plans. If a serious medical condition is identified, the patient is referred to the appropriate practitioner.
In 2012, husband and wife practitioners Dr. Salima Shariff and Dr. Moez Lakhani teamed up with Dr. Munira Jivraj to form one of Calgary’s premier dental practices. In 2014, they were thrilled to welcome Dr. Veeta Maharaj onboard as the newest member of the Millennium Dental team.
The doctor’s shared, integrated approach to health and dentistry is the driving force behind their practice. Their services are aimed not only at improving their patients’ dental health, but their general well-being.
The team is passionate about understanding the associations between dental and general health, and how best to apply this knowledge to improve their patients’ oral health-related quality of life.
