Excel Dental Pioneers Health-Focused Dentistry

1701 W. James River Rd., Ozark; 417-581-3600  

It’s no coincidence that Excel Dental’s tagline is “smile healthy.” If individuals have been around their office in the last few years, they most likely have heard about how a healthy smile helps to keep their overall body healthier. But the clinic is just beginning its quest for healthier smiles and healthier patients.

Their mission: New research, new technology and a new passion for health are why their office is pushing forward with increased health focus. Of course, they love beautiful smiles, but there’s so much they can do to help individuals improve their health. Imagine a world where saliva can be analyzed for bacteria, yeast and viruses. That world is today! But it’s not just testing for it; it’s knowing what to do, when to do it and how to follow up when individuals get the results. They will be hearing a whole lot more about this from the clinic in the coming years as they constantly improve their office for the benefit of their patients’ health. Guests are encouraged to come in to check them out and see how they can start making improvements in their health to be their best selves.

Q&A with Dr. Tracy Davis

417: What do you recommend to patients to be their healthiest?
Dr. Tracy Davis: It’s important that we carefully listen to the patient’s desires. Of course, all treatment plans are always individualized to what each patient is seeking.

417: What does being your best self mean to you?
T.D.: In our office, being your “best self” means a healthy smile that is functioning well and helps you to feel good about yourself.

417: What do your customers typically think of when they’re trying to achieve their healthiest selves?
T.D.: It depends on where they are individually. If they’re in pain, it means taking care of any infection that might be present. If there are dental issues present, it may mean restoring their smile back to health and function. If they are self-conscious about their smile appearance, it may mean a total smile makeover!

Q&A with Dr. Diana Eul

417: What do you recommend to clients to be their best self? 
Dr. Diana Eul: We advocate living a healthy lifestyle that promotes brain development. This includes adequate hydration, positive sleep hygiene habits, a balanced protein-rich diet, limiting screen time and regular exercise. These habits are crucial for enhancing overall cognitive function.

417:  Why did you choose to go into your current profession?
D.E.: I learned the benefits of Cereset® during a trauma certification program through the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals. I immediately knew I needed to bring this technology to the Springfield community and help people achieve their best self. 

417: What sets your business apart from your competitors?
D.E.: Other brain-based technologies work from the outside in, requiring emotional and physical effort. Cereset® works from the inside out, asking the client to relax. We use EEG technology to record brain activity, convert it to sound and let the client hear their brain, sense imbalance and naturally come back into balance.
