You never leave on a trip without knowing where you are headed. You don’t get in the car and just point it in a direction. Why would you leave your health care to that chance? Master Planning is a way that you can define what you want and then help us plan that so you will get there. Our only goal is to help you make choices that are in your own best self-interests. A master plan takes into account the three diseases of the mouth:
• Gum disease
• Tooth disease
• Bite disease
And helps you understand the causes of these. In this way, you are able to get beyond the disease. In a master plan, you can set the pace of your treatment for what is comfortable for you. The end goal is for you to get as healthy as you want to be.
The Master Plan is your stepping stone to a better life. The Master Plan is a document that you are intimately involved in creating based on 3 specific areas of prevention:
• Primary prevention – predicting disease before it occurs and preventing it
• Secondary prevention – detecting disease early and eliminating it
• Tertiary prevention – rejuvenation of defects caused by disease. This allows you to move to Primary prevention.
The Master plan is based on the following:
Structure determines behavior and behavior determines results.
