With more than two decades of dental practice experience, Dr. Cairo was determined to create a better dental experience for his patients when he opened his own practice in 2008. To do this, Dr. Cairo stepped away from the traditional idea of “tooth-by-tooth” dentistry and began looking at the entire person, including the relationship to structures of the head and neck to create a “functional wellness approach” that also considers aesthetics improvements as equally important.
“My goal is to help people be able to express joy and happiness in their lives through their smile.” – Dr. Cairo
