My Goal is To Save as Much Tooth Structure as Possible and Keep you Away from Crowns, Root Canals and Implants
as Much as Possible.
Dr. Pompa Interviewing Me on Cellular Healing TV:
Most of you have had some sort of bad experiences at the dentist:
It's a serious subject that needs to be addressed right away when it comes to choosing a healthcare provider.
It's always the same story: you're lured in by the free exam and xrays or cheap exam and xrays and you get the
bait and switch; "get em' in quick and crush em' down."
When you're just price-shopping over the phone, this is exactly what you're going to wind up with every time.
They will say WHATEVER IT TAKES to get you in their doors because they know once you're in, they have you. Or
so they think...
This is a betrayal! But you're setting yourself up to make it happen without even realizing it. You think you're
just trying to find the best price, whether it be a mechanic or a hairstylist or anything else. You're being
naive. You know what's going to happen.
"Oh yeah, sure. I'll give your car a free inspection" - the problem is, we both know how that's going to end
up most of the time: the most expensive consultation you have ever had. You're almost always going to spend more
than you wanted.
Betrayal is a subject that makes a fearful consumer and, mixed with the horrible world of insurance-dominated
healthcare, equals a cesspool of filth and confusion.
It creates a world where patients are careful to talk because they know that next sentence may be their last
- both financially and for their personal health. But they are desperate for care and not sure what is going
on with them. You have a person who NEEDS to talk, but cannot. That feeling makes you crazy! It makes you feel
like a stationary, vibrating rock.
"Will you take my insurance?" is more important than "will you grind down all my teeth and place crowns like
"Will there be a co-pay?" is more important than "will you root canal all my teeth and leave me in a state of
poor health that could become MASSIVE complications in the next 10 years when those root canals get infected
This is not the way healthcare was intended it be. This is not the way healthcare SHOULD be. This is not the
way we will run our office and I am openly and strongly against this operating basis.
I would sooner lose my practice than create more distrust in people out there trying to find decent healthcare.
It's a jungle and difficult enough as it is.
This sort of behavior comes from the following equation:
Scared and unconfident (uninformed) patient + unconfident and needy practice/practitioner = NIGHTMARE
But it's great for business because we're doing something that VERY few (if any) offices are doing. So the demand
is high and it leads to a very low-stress and high-morale dental environment.
I have a fantastic database packed with very happy patients who won't go anywhere else if their life depended
on it - and for that I am truly blessed. Why more dentists don't do this completely escapes me but I'll be the
last one to complain.
I have a calm, 1-on-1 environment and you as the patient are a PART of the process here. Your education and
choice as to what happens to your body is a PRIORITY and not something that is given the backseat to an insurance
Your right to your own health and sanity is primary, not your right to have an insurance claim approved prior
These are the things that put my office and my staff completely outside the realm of standard dentistry. We
feel very strongly about this and this section has been written in an effort to communicate that intention and
to give you, as the potential patient, a confidence in who I am, what I offer that's different and how it may
fit into what you are looking for. My office isn't for everyone.
Myself and my team have spent hundreds of hours putting together good, not-boring (we hope) material on this
website (and in my free course) in an effort to educate you as a patient. Whether you come to see me or not,
this website, if you take the time to look it over thoroughly, will educate you as a patient in general for any
sort of dentistry you may need. Look it over and gain a personal confidence in being a patient.
Because, look... once you get those root canals and crowns done unnecessarily, there is no turning back. The
damage is done and you need to prevent that sort of thing from happening. Otherwise you may be fighting complications
from those procedures for the rest of your life. The price tag may gleam in the light, but 10 years down the
line there is a very good chance that you will regret your decision more than you can ever imagine.
When you come to see me you are proudly displaying that your health and the health of the people you love comes
first and foremost.
I'm very excited to meet you and very excited to give you a fresh look at dentistry – a look that most of my patients thought they might never find.
This experience has also taught me the exactness of TMJ and Occlusion guidelines and how to translate those guidelines into
