With Dr. McClatchie, you will receive the most personalized dental care you have ever had. You will find that the benefits you derive from our office visits can go far beyond a nice smile.
Dr. McClatchie is a student of The Pankey Institute, a world renowned facility of restorative education. The Pankey Institute is dedicated to the principles of life-long dental health and tooth preservation.
Dr. McClatchie’s goal is to protect, heal, and preserve your teeth, and when damage exists, restore them to wholeness. All too often teeth don’t survive their owners care. Neglect equals loss. With a little care each day, there is no reason you cannot keep your teeth for a lifetime. To a student of The Pankey Institute, such as Dr. McClatchie, you are not just a passive receiver of dental treatment — you are a full partner in the restoration of your dental health. Together you will work to achieve common goals.
It is important not to underestimate the value of any tooth. The position and function of each tooth is important. Losing one, even in the back of your mouth, can be detrimental to your health. A lost tooth can cause multiple problems if left unreplaced. Your bite (chewing forces) may shift causing other teeth to move, creating new spaces, and kicking front teeth out of alignment. The more teeth that are lost, the more your facial features may collapse, causing wrinkles and premature aging.
