How would the concept of “Dental Health Nirvana” be described? It’s achieved through the “Four Tees.” Dr. Allman and our team first invest TIME into the relationship with the patient. The TRANSPARENCY of Dr. Allman’s explanations makes the patient more confident that he/she has indeed chosen their dentist wisely, and has the TRUST that Dr. Allman will do nothing but the best for them. The patient is ready to hear the TRUTH about what is going on in their mouth and what the best plan of treatment is to satisfy their wants and desires and to correct clinical conditions that can cause harm.

Dr. Allman takes time to understand the patient's dental concerns and desires. Moreover, he implements a scheduling philosophy that values his patient's time.
Dr. Allman establishes an open dialogue with patients, which helps patients understand all aspects of their dental health. In return, patients are able to make sound decisions about their dental health.
Once Dr. Allman establishes time and transparency, the patient can trust his expert advice about their oral health. Dr. Allman also keeps preventative procedures in mind to reduce the risk of future health concerns.
Truth is the treatment plan that Dr. Allman develops, which addresses the patient's needs and wants. This plan will include high-quality procedures, which will be properly completed over time.
The ultimate goal of the dentist-patient relationship is for the dentist to use his utmost care, skill, and judgment to assess the patient’s clinical dental needs and to understand how the patient’s dental wants and desires affect their life. After that, it is possible to treat the patient’s needs, wants, and desires according to a mutually agreed upon treatment plan.
Good teeth are the result of the treatment activities of this dentist-patient relationship, but it includes much more than just the teeth themselves. The desired outcomes of Dental Health Nirvana are:
So, to achieve Dental Health Nirvana, Dr. Allman cannot just look at the teeth, or at your smile, or at that one tooth that broke off two months ago and still doesn’t hurt. Dr. Allman must take a global view of what is happening in your mouth and how what he sees contributes to problems that may be affecting other parts of your body. He also needs to see how your wants and desires for your mouth fit into the overall picture of your own Dental Health Nirvana.
Imagine a PYRAMID with four sides. The pyramid is a naturally strong shape. Think of this pyramid as the tangible representation of Dental Health Nirvana. Each side of the pyramid describes which of Dr. Allman’s services will contribute to the theme of that side of the pyramid.
