Island Tower Dentistry is Open as of Monday, May 4th! We can't wait to start seeing you all again soon.
One of the strongest aspects of our clinic's practice is the care and attention given to patients in our preventive and periodontal department. Our highly trained dental hygienists endeavor to provide our patients with the most thorough cleaning possible, while always being attuned to maintaining their comfort. For those patients facing more complex oral health needs, our hygienists are fully trained and capable of providing the most up-to-date non-surgical treatments available.
In 2000, the U.S. Surgeon Generals Office released a report declaring America's high prevalence of dental disease a "silent epidemic." This report aimed to raise awareness that oral health is an integral part of overall well-being and that no distinction should be made between oral and general health.
Periodontal disease attacks the gums and bone. As the disease progresses, bone literally dissolves away from the tooth causing teeth to become loose and infected. Gum and periodontal disease have been linked to infective endocarditis, diabetes, spontaneous preterm births, lung infections, and a weakened immune systems, as well as infections in joint replacements.
Island Tower Dentistry's goal is to help our patients maintain the benefits of a healthy mouth, with pockets no deeper than 3 mm and no bleeding upon probing. The mantra at Island Tower Dentistry is "Zero Tolerance for Bleeding," and it has become evident through research that this critical goal is not only good for your oral health, but also for your overall general health as well.
We rely on computerized charting to keep us informed on patient status at all times. This information can be easily shared with physicians and other specialists, and we highly recommended that those patients who head north for the summer bring a copy of their charting with them for any dental health care needs during their time away. Computerized charting is also utilized for recall hygiene appointments, during which one of our specially trained hygienists will examine and assess your current dental condition. In determining your current dental condition we will review:

Dr. Van Dyke has a very gentle and professional way about him, and I had a great experience today. Getting my filling was almost entirely pain-free! I’ve been going to this practice for years and will continue to do so.
Dr. Van Dyke went out of his way to make my son feel comfortable in one of his first experiences in a dental office. His kindness and wonderful attitude made this experience a very pleasant one. We will go nowhere else from now on. Despite the drive from Naples to Marco Island, the trip is so well worth it.
