What We Do

What is Cariodontal?

Jonathan Richter, DDS FAGD

At Cariodontal, we believe overall wellness starts with your mouth and have developed a process that encompasses a personalized approach to dentistry and your health. We have the unique ability to communicate and explain in layman's terms what is going on with your system, how it relates to both your oral and overall wellness, and offer treatment options that address the initial onset of symptoms, but also help prevent the predictive outcomes we learn from your personalized tests. We have also improved the health and livelihood of people with some of the most severe cases of malocclusion, which is often hereditary and can be the reason for your overcrowded mouth or abnormal bite patterns.


We start by evaluating the whole wellbeing of an individual; which results in a personalized treatment plan that matches your health goals to that of your beautiful smile.

One of the most valuable services Cariodontal offers is a complete comprehensive periodontal exam and health intake for us to understand your dental, medical, emotional, psychological and systemic wellness. Our approach to the periodontal exam is unique because we look at your mouth as a reflection to what is happening systemically in your body and can identify issues such as: vitamin D deficiency, cancer, inflammation, etc. all of which are clues to deeper issues. Based on the periodontal exam and the intake, we may order blood tests to check your inflammatory markers, HBA and other tests to help us piece together your current state of wellness. Once we understand the full scope of your health, we  bring together the right team to facilitate your wellness plan. Sometimes this may include your internist and/or other practitioners.

+ Dental

Our philosophy is based on an integrative holistic preventative approach to oral wellness with a primary objective to save your natural teeth and prevent oral disease.

Based on the treatment plan the team outlines, with your partnership, we tackle your dental health in tandem with your physical health plan. We address any oral issues that may be compromising your health while we look at the integrity of your teeth and gums in an effort to prevent further issues. This may include functional restoration, periodontal orthodontic retention, bone grafting, crowns, etc. with the intention to prevent issues in order to accomplish and maintain long-term wellness.

+ Health

There is a direct correlation between chronic systemic diseases and the condition of your mouth. Our approach to dental wellness is actually an overall wellness approach.

While we deploy the oral treatment plan we collaborate with the assigned team to work towards addressing your overall wellness. Typical wellness plans include, nutrition planning and coaching, psychological counseling, sleep monitoring, and so much more. The goal is to uncover the reason for the imbalance in your health and to treat the source, not the symptoms. By addressing the underlying reason, we have a more effective plan to preventing the predictive outcomes we uncovered in your initial tests.
