Dr. Grapevine practices the concept of Complete Dentistry, which emphasizes an individualized and comprehensive approach to a patient’s dental care. This begins with prevention and early intervention. Complete Dentistry, the core principles of the Dawson Academy, focuses on a thorough evaluation of all aspects of the occlusal system, from teeth to jaw joints. Optimal oral health and an aesthetically pleasing smile are the results of an occlusal system that is functioning harmoniously. In other words, a beautiful smile is a functional smile.

What is Complete Dentistry?
Contrary to what you might think, this does not mean “drill and fill” every tooth. Complete Dentistry training through the Dawson Academy has taught Dr. Grapevine to identify the signs of underlying functional problems before any symptoms or damage occurs. This way, Dr. Grapevine can focus on conservative treatments that will deliver stable, long lasting results.
About The Dawson Academy
As with most professions, there is a range of skill levels among dentists based on the type of advanced education, training, and philosophy of patient care. Dr. Grapevine strives to stay on the leading edge of dentistry and has completed hundreds of hours in continuing education, most recently with the Dawson Academy.
The Dawson Academy is an advanced dental education facility where dentists teach dentists to be better dentists. The Concept of Complete Dentistry was introduced by Dr. Peter Dawson, founder of the Dawson Academy. His philosophy is that patients should be given a healthy, beautiful smile that will function properly and serve them comfortably for the rest of their lives.
Some of the world’s leading dentists teach hands-on courses in Complete Dentistry at the Dawson Academy, demonstrating the importance of early diagnosis and proper treatment planning.
