Most people don’t think about it, but your mouth has a much bigger connection to your body and overall health than you may realize. Whether it’s communicating, eating, or breathing, we use our mouths for a multitude of functions, including providing energy and oxygen. So when these systems aren’t working properly, your body compensates in ways that are detrimental to your health and well-being, such as causing headaches and poor sleep.
Dr. Morgan Herman takes a holistic approach to dentistry that will not only improve your oral health, but your quality of life. So while Dr. Morgan and her team offer a different approach to traditional dentistry, she also focuses on the effect your mouth has on the rest of your body by addressing breathing, posture, sleep patterns, and jaw and neck alignment that can treat or prevent problems that you may not associate with your mouth at first. “It’s not just teeth or gums we are concerned with. It’s the muscles and the architecture of the entire mouth. Whether it’s braces, a filling, or a crown, they all have ramifications on how you function,” she explains.
“While the research connecting your oral health and your overall systemic health has been present for over 20 years, it is great to finally see the public recognize this connection,” says Dr. Morgan. “Discovering this and realizing I have a such a profound impact on people’s lives is really such a gift. It has reinvigorated my love for dentistry.”
A recent transplant from Manhattan, Dr. Morgan graduated from NYU College of Dentistry, is a Diplomate with the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and holds an Associate Fellowship with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
“Really, I’m just so passionate,” says Dr. Morgan. “I’ve always wanted to help people—that’s what started my journey. I never thought that by being a dentist I could profoundly change someone’s life…Being where I am now we are changing people’s lives every day.”
