About Allison M. Adams
Dedication to patients, passion for the art and science of dentistry and commitment to learning connects Drs. Allison Adams and Mark McCaffery. After a decade of collaboration in separate Madison locations, they have merged their practices. “Our core belief is that our work with patients positively impacts the human spirit,” says Dr. McCaffery.
These experienced professionals, who practice with Dr. Celine Lee, believe exceptional dentistry is more about excellent communication than technique, and attentive listening is the most important diagnostic tool in the provision of care. Drs. Adams and McCaffery understand that prevention is a superior strategy to repair, and technology is valuable only as a supplement to conversation.
Focusing on the link between oral and systemic health, they target more than just infection and inflammation. The Integrative Dental Center at Adams Dental incorporates whole body solutions, addressing the importance of sleep and how appropriate breathing directs one’s ability to sustain health. “Many of the differences seen in children’s learning, behavior and self-image are directly influenced by the quality of breathing and the metabolic miracles that occur while sleeping,” says Dr. Adams.
“Science is unraveling how disruption with the life-sustaining activities of sleep and breathing influence chronic ailments throughout a lifetime,” says Dr. McCaffery. He and Dr. Adams are at the forefront of airway health, identifying and intervening when airway compromise exists. They believe that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself.
“We both share an appreciation for people, which energizes our treatment efforts,” Dr. Adams says, “and we’re excited about the future.”
