  • Angie's List Award
    Dr. Jack W. Behn has won the Angie’s List’s Super Service Award for General Dentistry.
    "I've had a lot of bad experiences with Dentist offices in South Florida and was looking for a new Dentist. I asked around and a colleague at work "strongly suggested Dr.Behn and his staff. I From the first appointment before even seeing the Doctor, I was warmly greeted and treated very well. Dr.Behn and his staff are hands down the best I've ever experienced. The reasons why I recommend them are as follows:

    1) They attend to your needs
    2) Friendly and always remember you and your family by name
    3) I've never waited in the waiting room more than 2-5 minutes, however, the majority of the time as I sign in, I'm already told to come in.
    4) They've never over charge and once they made a mistake and they sent me a check for the difference. How many other organizations would do that? It's hard to find honest people, much less honest organizations in South Florida.
    5) Every single person I've referred loves them and has referred others to them. About 10+ people from our company goes to their office.

    If you're looking for a friendly, honest, topnotch service, great bedside manner and the best dentistry professionals in South Florida, look no further. I've been going here for almost two years and my wife has been going for about a year now. I strongly recommend their practice."

MyPerioPath

MyPerioPath® and MyPerioID® PST® are salivary tests that determine the cause of periodontal infections and who are at increased risk for severe periodontal disease respectively.

MyPerioPath® Identifies the type and concentration of specific perio-pathogenic bacteria that are known to cause periodontal disease. MyPerioPath® helps support the clinician with better risk assessment and personalized treatment options for more predictable patient outcomes.

MyPerioID® PST® Identifies individual genetic susceptibility to periodontal disease and enables the clinician to establish which patients are at increased risk for more severe periodontal infections due to an exaggerated immune response.

Current research is confirming a link between common gum disease and heart disease. The presence of gum disease makes it twice as likely for patients to have a fatal heart attack. The more we learn about the common links between cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and periodontal disease, the more we understand the importance of the role of managing periodontal disease for aiding in the control of these other clinical conditions. When gums are inflamed, the bacteria and inflammatory mediators of periodontal origin do enter the bloodstream daily and can participate in the atherosclerotic process. We have evidence that gum disease increases the C-reactive protein levels and the elimination of gum disease results in an impressive reduction in CRP levels. The medical research is now saying it clearly: the byproducts of periodontal disease appear to have an effect on the levels of proinflammatory factors that are associated with hypertension, arterioslcerosis, thromoembolitic conditions, myocardial infarction, stroke, and diabetes mellitus. Controlling periodontal disease aids in managing the others.
