It only took three decades, but I now LOVE going to the dentist. Shocked?! I’m not! Anti-Dentite’s be damned. Dr. Mayr is one of my most favorite people, and he is an incredible dentist. He and his staff are committed to helping patients feel welcomed and comfortable in the office, and he treats everyone with thorough care and respect. Even if your insurance is out-of-network, you should definitely go see Dr. Mayr, his business partner Dr. Yuko, and their incredible team at Harmony!! You’ll leave the office feeling empowered to take care of your oral hygiene and overall health, without feeling ashamed if you admitted that you forget to floss daily.
This episode will offer you information all about what on earth it means to be a holistic dental practice, as well as how Dr. Mayr balances traditional Western dentistry with holistic/biologic dentistry. He also candidly shares a bit about his personal life, and - dun dun dunnnnnnn - whether or not he flosses daily!!
