Her practice philosophy centers around a health and wellness model and the importance of the “the oral systemic connection,” and how whole body health and oral health are intimately connected.
Dr. Minadeo-Fox practices what she preaches. Holistic dental care is a comprehensive whole-body approach to dentistry that reaches far beyond treating symptoms that manifest in the mouth. The nutritional aspect of her holistic dental care is a direct result of her journey into professional figure competing, which required a vigorous workout schedule and a strict adherence to proper nutrition. She believes that improving the general health and wellness of her patients is intrinsic to helping them maintain optimal health and to fight off disease.

Chair-side computers and overhead TV’s: Chair-side computers allow us to view your x-rays without leaving the chair. The overhead T.V/Computers are also used in patient education and for viewing your favorite T.V. program while receiving dental services.
Intra-oral camera: If a picture speaks a thousand words, then our intraoral camera speaks volumes about your oral health! Our intraoral camera uses a tiny fiber optic wand to easily take vivid photographs of the inside of your mouth. When indicated, we will take intraoral photos that will allow us to let you see what we see.
Oxygen/Ozone generator: A medical mixture of oxygen-oxone, or O-3 is generated for therapy to eliminate bacteria , fungi and viruses in the mouth.
