“L'Uomo Vitruviano” – Leonardo da Vinci
This rendering of the Vitruvian Man, completed in 1490, provides the perfect example of Leonardo’s keen interest in proportion. In addition, this picture represents a cornerstone of Leonardo’s attempts to relate man to nature. Encyclopedia Britannica online states, “Leonardo envisaged the great picture chart of the human body he had produced through his anatomical drawings and Vitruvian Man as acosmografia del minor mondo (cosmography of the microcosm). He believed the workings of the human body to be an analogy for the workings of the universe.“
Our practice succeeds this philosophy into our daily work. Each tooth, each mouth, and each patient is a microcosm, and the center of the universe at work. We pledge to work relentlessly to rehabilitate one tooth, one mouth, and one patient at a time, until we restore the form and function, so the workings of the universe can keep on!
“De Architectura” – Marcus Vitruvius Pollio
In his book “De Architectura” (30-15 BC), Roman architect & engineer Vitruvius describes the 3 principles of a good building:
- Firmitas [Durability]
- Utilitas [Functionality]
- Venustas [Esthetics]
We believe dentistry shares the same principles with architecture: The structures that we construct should be based on understanding and executing sound engineering principles. At the same time, they should yield cosmetic values to the highest level. With our expertise and resources, we promise that we will devote our very best to achieve this goal for every one of our patients
Power of Education
We strongly believe ultimate excellence comes from two sources: (1) Quality formal education, and (2) Experience with continuing education.
Our doctors and staff members have accomplished the highest level of formal education at prestigious institutions across the globe, and broad and deep experience that were perfected through scientific training working at academic institutes and clinics.
We assure you that the care we provide is based on sound science and perfected through experience.
Power of Technology
Modern technology in clinical dentistry is not about the visual “wow” factor.
Through our research, we discovered that technology can minimize human error, thus standardizing the level of clinical care of the organization as a whole.
After all, we strive to eliminate even the rogue one bad case – no patient deserves to be in that position!
