The oral environment is full of bacteria. There are many strains of bacteria present in our mouth. Although some bacteria are good, a few bad strains can destroy the gums and supporting structures for the teeth. Because the gums support the structure of the teeth, they certainly need to be healthy in order to hold the teeth intact. When the bad bacteria leaks into the bloodstream through the gums, it can cause major issues such as heart attack, stroke, premature birth, rheumatoid arthritis, dementia, Alzheimer’s, uncontrolled diabetes and more. By knowing the exact bacterial strain that is troubling your gum health, we can narrow down the treatment plan to one that is tailored to meet your specific needs. Oral DNA testing is a recent advanced technology in dentistry which uses your saliva to test which bacteria is actively involved in destroying your gums. There are more than ten strains of bacteria that can cause periodontal disease.
Oral DNA testing is a simple process that will not consume much of your time. You just need to swish a saline solution and spit it into a tube. The collected sample is sent to the oral DNA testing lab to diagnose the kind of bacterial strain that caused the disease. Once we receive the test results we can provide better advice about the correct medication and clinical procedures. It also enables us to target a specific treatment plan that helps to eliminate the root cause much earlier. We can also test your genetic predisposition to diseases and possibly prevent you from acquiring them through well-planned preventive measures.

Dr. Dobee IS AMAZING, she helped me with my deep clean and continued to follow up with me afterwards to make sure I was experiencing minimal pain throughout the recovery process. She really cares about her patients and I HIGHLY recommend her!
Wow Dr. Dobee is by far the best dentist I've ever been to. She's not only really intelligent and knows exactly what she's doing but she's also very funny and makes the whole experience of going to a dentist a really great one.
I couldn't be happier with my care at Dr Dobee's office! Everyone there is amazing and thanks to Dr Dobee I am no longer afraid of the dentist. Especially thanks to Des at the front desk for making all my visits seamless. Love you guys!
Best dentist I've had and so glad I found her…outstanding in her field but also great interpersonal skills and sensitive to her patients needs. Staff Joanna and Des are professional and make patient feel comfortable and welcomed. I enjoy my visits and it is because the staff and Dentists are ON IT!
I had some problems with my insurance which the front desk took care of and they were super friendly while waiting for responds regarding my insurance. My visit was very informative also the treatment plans weren't pushed and forced like other dentists do. So they're going to be my place for dental treatments from now on!
I'm so fortunate to have found dr Dobee !
She's a beautiful soul! Very caring & professional !
Very trusting ! I have had the bad luck to get bad dentistry practiced upon my teeth , Dobee has been do everything she can to help me out with the budget I have . Her work is worth every penny !
Dr. Dobee has a heart of gold and the skills of an amazing dentist. I had the pleasure of having her take care of my teeth and make solid recommendations on what I need for future work. I walked out with super clean teeth and a well taken care of smile.
I came here because of the yelp reviews and they didn't disappoint. Great availability and friendly staff.
A trip to the dentist you will actually enjoy! It's the first time I've ever looked forward to my next dental appointment. I mean what dentist do you know that's had a private dinner with Obama??
