Encouraging Patient Participation through Education

At Healthful Alternatives, we do more than educate you about your oral health. We not only help you care for your smile at home, but want to empower you to feel in control and confident about your dental care. Dr. Schaefer and our team know how much more effective dental care can be as a collaborative effort.

From the first visit, we do all we can to help improve your smile. We use advanced diagnostic technology such as digital x-rays to gain precise images of teeth, gums, jaws, and facial structures. We use these pictures to inform you about our findings and precisely what’s going on inside your smile.

Our team can give you a new perspective about your oral health. We want to provide your loved ones with everything they need to make smart and informed dental care decisions.
