Happy Together: Holistic Healthcare and Sports Dentistry

DC Smiles, the holistic and integrative cosmetic dentistry practice in Alexandria, Va. and Washington, D.C., is thrilled to announce that our dentist, Dr. Lawrence Singer, has added a membership to the Academy for Sports Dentistry (ASD) to his already full roster of professional credentials.

Founded more than 30 years ago, ASD is an international community of more than 600 dentists, physicians, trainers, coaches, dental technicians and educators whose communal knowledge and experience helps further the field of sports dentistry.

It’s a great fit for Dr. Singer. Through his position as the Official Cosmetic Dentist of the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders as well as his emergency dentistry and dental trauma practice, Dr. Singer is well-versed in the prevalence and severity of sports-related dental and craniofacial injuries.

Consider one study conducted by the National Institutes of Health that looked at facial traumas requiring dental work. In it, more than half of those surveyed suffered their injury playing sports.

Work-related accidents, car accidents and violence are other dominant reasons that people experience craniofacial injuries that require oral surgery and advanced restorative dentistry.

If you live in or near Washington, D.C. or Alexandria, Va. and suffer a sports-related dental emergency or another craniofacial trauma that requires care or advice from a holistic dentist who takes a conservative approach to treatment, favors naturopathic remedies, and encourages patients to be proactive in their recovery, please contact DC Smiles for an appointment. You can reach our dentist’s offices online or by telephone: (703) 299-4614 in Alexandria or (202) 455-4920 in Washington, D.C.
