Can you believe that going to My Rivertown Dentist is so much more than just good for your oral health? We care about your overall health too, and what we do for you and your smile directly impacts what happens elsewhere in your body. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Ashley Lee, the team at My Rivertown Dentist will all tell you that good health is truly the foundation for a great life. 

Ask Yourself These Questions

  • How do you feel when you wake up in the morning? Rested? Awake? Excited about a new day?
  • How about when you go to bed? Satisfied and sleepy, ready to relax?
  • And are you living a full and energized life in between?

You need to feel great and healthy all over your body, not just in your mouth. Know that My Rivertown Dentist is here to help you find your best smile, your best health, and the dynamic and joyful life you have always imagined!

Dr. Ashley Lee is highly trained and has been an influencer in the growing field of oral-systemic dentistry – dentistry that focuses on the connections between the health of your mouth and your overall well-being.

How Does a Dentist Help?

We see what’s going on in your mouth so often; it’s easy to say that we know it from the inside out. When we get to see you and your smile every six months, this is where we can check for any changes in your mouth that we know so well. This provides your Madison dentist with a chance to catch signs and changes in your oral health that can possibly predict and preempt issues like:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Oral and other cancers
  • Eating disorders
  • TMJ disorder
  • Sjogren’s syndrome
  • Bruxism (clenching and grinding)
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Systemic inflammation and sensitivities
  • Yeast and bacterial overgrowth
  • HIV/ Aids
  • Osteoporosis
  • Signs of Alzheimer’s

Do you want to learn more about the connection between your oral and overall health? Come to My Rivertown Dentist for a unique dental experience and learn more about Dr. Lee and her partnership with Vivos Therapeutics. Let us show you how we can also detect any breathing or airway development problems using preventive care you won’t find anywhere else in Madison. We provide you and your family with a comprehensive examination designed to detect any issues with a child’s airway, such as airway development, swallowing patterns, and breathing that could be linked to SRDB or sleep apnea.
