New Dental Office, Dana Rockey DMD Opens in Newport Beach
Newport Beach, California – today we announced the opening of Dana Rockey DMD’s Newport Beach office in Orange County, California.
According to Dr. Dana Rockey, “After an extensive search to find the right practice, we found it, located in Newport Beach, right down the street from where I live. Although I’ll enjoy the short commute, finding the right practice and staff, who had been led by a doctor committed to high standards of care and excellence, was essential. The staff have welcomed me and they are excited about the new changes and technology that we’ll have available.”
Dr. James Vogel, DDS who has practiced dentistry for 40 years in Newport Beach was ready to retire and will be traveling and enjoying time with his wife and grandchildren. According to Dr. Vogel, “I have peace-of-mind knowing that my patients are in the care of Dr. Rockey.”
Earlier this year Dr. Rockey sold his practice in Rancho Santa Margarita in order to practice what some refer to as Dentistry 2.0 – or “wellness-based dentistry“. He explains that although he offers dental services that you would expect a dentist to offer, he offers new innovative services and his focus and philosophy are unique.
Dr. Rockey is focused on helping his patients to maintain and/or achieve health and wellness. Dana notes that too many dentists and health care professionals are focused on “disease care” – treating diseases rather than championing health.
Dr. Rockey approaches dentistry and the care of his patients from a whole-body system perspective. Dr. Rockey notes, “recent research directly connects what’s going on in the mouth to the health condition of the heart, the brain, the arterial system and the body’s organs. Our purpose is to help our patients to live healthy lives. Our goal is to deliver the highest quality dental care in proven and progressive ways.”
Because oral bacteria and subsequent inflammation have been linked to many other conditions such as cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and preterm labor, Dr. Rockey offers Oral and Systemic Diagnostic services that allow patients to proactively screen and monitor their health in progressive ways that dentists have not offered their patients until now.
Rockey works closely with world-renowned physicians to champion the care of patients from a whole-body system and health/wellness perspective. He says, “I’m excited about continuing what I’m most passionate about – serving my patients in a meaningful way, as a dentist. I want people to know that I care about them and their health. My business card says that I’m a dentist, and yes, that’s what I am – but it’s not about ‘cleanings and procedures’ – for me, its about helping my patients to live healthy and happy lives.”
