I have been asked the meaning behind the name of our practice, Admira Dentistry. Years ago I sat in a lecture by one of my mentors and he spoke about ﬁnding a balance in your life. He spoke of four areas of our life to try to maintain a sense of balance: Health, Family, Spirituality and Career. I have worked to try to maintain that balance and also to help others ﬁnd their balance with a primary focus on health. Admira stands for the admiration we have for our guests’ dedication to health. We have a deep appreciation for a healthy lifestyle and try to carry this over into our practice. Beyond creating and maintaining beautiful, healthy smiles, addressing signs and symptoms of TMJ disorders and sleep apnea we have a strong focus on total health. We are dedicated to assisting people with lifestyle changes, including areas of nutrition, exercise, physical and medical concerns. In dedicating our practice to this we hope to help our guests achieve a sense of Beauty -Health -Balance in their lives.
