Why Is Collaborative Care Important?

There are several reasons why collaborative care can benefit your health beyond thoroughly addressing your oral health needs. Early diagnosis and intervention can help prevent dental conditions from turning into more serious concerns. Dr. Hockel practices what he preaches — having a strong working relationship with a group of specialists helps him in providing the highest quality dental care to every single patient, no matter how complex the issue is.

I was very impressed with Dr. Ching and the staff. I will be having a lot done and feel confident I’m in very good hands.
