One of the things that separates Dr. Mckinnon Forbes from other Nashville dentists is his training. This allows him to take a different perspective on dentistry, and see many places where dentistry is lacking.
One of the shortcomings of dentistry is its tendency to be reactive. Dentists often see their job as fixing things in the mouth that are broken. Unfortunately, this means that people often end up with a mouth that is perpetually in only fair health with teeth that are constantly at the edge of breaking or failing.
But Dr. Forbes’ approach is different. Not only does he take a comprehensive approach to oral health, but he also looks to identify ways not just to fix problems, but to get you healthy so you stay healthy. This means in part paying attention to your bite health with precise tools for measuring bite forces and joint health. But it also means paying attention to other risks in your mouth, some of which can be tracked with an oral DNA test.
