Dr. Paulson: Graduate of The Dawson Academy

Unlike most dentists, Dr. Paulson practices the Concept of Complete Dentistry, which emphasizes a comprehensive, individualized approach to a patient’s dental care, beginning with prevention and early intervention. Contrary to what you might think, this doesn’t mean drill and fill every tooth.

Rather, the Complete Dentistry that Dr. Paulson practices requires an understanding of every structural part of your chewing system, including your jaw joints, facial and temporal muscles, and teeth. In the long run, this could save you from years of pain, suffering and extensive costs for multiple and repeated dental work.

Analyzing the 10 structural and functional factors in the chewing system is the basis for every new patient examination so that Dr. Paulson can properly diagnosis and treat not only obvious problems, but also those that haven’t even shown signs yet!

Did you know that most dental problems are not painful at first, but can be identified by a trained dentist before any symptoms or damage occur?

As a graduate of The Dawson Academy, Dr. Paulson is one of only 10% of dentists in the country who practices the Concept of Complete Dentistry.
