Integrative Dental Medicine
Focusing on optimal, full body health
Williamsburg Dental Arts is a unique medical and dental facility that has been serving the Williamsburg neighborhood since 2010. Founded by Dr. Konstantin Rubinov, Williamsburg Dental Arts is a manifestation of a life-long dream; to create a health-oriented dental practice that focuses not only on quality dental care, but also dedicates itself to help patients achieve optimal full-body health utilizing a special concept called INTEGRATIVE DENTAL MEDICINE.
What is Integrative Dental Medicine
At Williamsburg Dental Arts, our clinicians are part of a small but rapidly growing group of dental practitioners with the training and knowledge to not only perform stellar traditional dentistry such as fillings, crowns and root canals, but they also take into account, maintain and advance your overall systemic health.
Integrative Dental Medicine is a growing discipline whereby the objective is to understand cause and affect relationships between health and disease. Patients are counseled on how to prevent accelerated aging and chronic degenerative disease conditions, such as atherosclerosis. At the same time, patients are coached on how they can get engaged in a lifestyle that can turn back the clock, increase energy, sharpen their minds, make them trimmer, fitter, sexier, and help them live with much more vibrancy and joy. These principles are applied through dental medicine by addressing the 4 B’s – Bite (TMJ, Grinding/Clenching, Masticatory Muscles, Dental Malocclusion), Bacteria (oral pathogens, salivary testing, probiotics, periodontal therapy), Breathing (Sleep Apnea, disordered breathing and snoring), Body (Systemic Inflammation, Physical Inactivity, Toxins, Stress).
By specifically addressing certain oral conditions such as chronic inflammation, the relationship between the upper and lower jaw (bite) and breathing, our doctors are able to improve many aspects of your overall systemic health while simultaneously giving you healthier teeth and a more radiant smile.
Integrative Dental Medicine Therapies
Let’s face it, we do not see Physicians as often as we see the Dentist. Integrative Dental Medicine is often the first line of defense against systemic disease. The mouth is the gateway to the body. It is the only view we have to look inside. Careful assessment of the health of the mouth gives us an overall cross-section of the health of the body. It is estimated that 60-80% of all major diseases will manifest themselves in the GI tract first; the mouth being a crucial part and entrance of that tract. Diseases such as HIV, diabetes, cancer, chronic inflammatory and autoimmune disease amongst many others will ofter times show their early symptoms in the mouth first. The age old saying “Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body” has never been more true than it is today. No longer is there any confusion on the medical link between gum disease and heart disease. Research shows that Periodontal Disease and other infections of the mouth are directly linked to a higher rate of heart disease, diabetes and strokes along with other chronic illness such as chronic GI inflammation, auto-immune diseases and many other chronic systemic inflammation ailments.
As advocates of your overall health we are proud to offer these preventative services to all our patients! Our goal is to educate and support you on the systemic link between your mouth and body. We check your Blood Pressure at each initial and re-care visit. Your blood pressure is a great indicator of how your entire body is performing. it is a very global indicator of overall health and can often uncover a major health problem if one is present and hiding. Early detection and diagnosis is the global benchmark of high-quality healthcare. To those patients that are interested, we routinely provide Salivary and Glucose Testing Services. We offer 3 salivary tests through OralDNA Labs. The first identifies if you have oral bacteria triggering Periodontal Disease. The second shows if a patient is genetically at a greater risk for Periodontal disease and the third test screens of oral HPV bacteria that could lead to oral and cervical cancer. For further information on Salivary Testing, visit the OralDNA Labs website here.

Spa Dentistry and Sedation
To alleviate anxieties associated with traditional dental environments.
Pioneering a concept known as Spa Dentistry, we create a soothing, nurturing and relaxing environment to alleviate stress and anxiety commonly associate with conventional dental offices. Using sound and aroma therapy we aim to create and conjure positive, relaxing vibes. The design and layout of our facility is more like that of spacious art gallery or spa rather than your traditional medical or dental office. All patients with dental anxiety or dental phobias are welcome to receive all their treatments in conjunction with a customized level of DENTAL SEDATION; from gentle, mild relaxation to complete “twighlight” sedation where you will have no recollection of the procedure.Learn More

Exceptional Quality Dentistry and Latest Medical Technology

We have seen technology in today’s world revolutionize and create new methods for some of the same services that we have employed for decades. Everything, from the way we eat to the way we shop to how we utilize transportation has been affected by technology in the last 10 years. Medicine—in particular Dentistry—has been revolutionized as a profession thanks to modern advances in medical technology. As Dr. Rubinov puts it, “In the field of medicine, we can only treat what we can see. Technology allows us to see more and the more we can see the better we can treat you.”
At Williamsburg Dental Arts we embrace, employ and specialize in using the most up-to-date, advanced dental technologies to minimized radiation, eliminate pain, and diagnose better for early preventative and conservative treatments to help patients avoid issues associated with conventional dental imaging and treatments still widely present today.
