No Man Is An Island

The Team Approach

Just as no man is an island, no single doctor or dentist can truly provide comprehensive care in this day of constantly changing technology. As in medicine, most cases will require a comprehensive treatment plan involving multiple specialists and including continued care of patients beyond the scope of the initial treatment. This is something that goes beyond the scope of any single professional or “center”.

Both Dr. Wheeler and Dr. Seul spend countless hours reading journals and taking continuing education courses around the world to be on the leading edge of available surgical techniques to provide the most current care possible for their patients. Our doctors, in turn, rely on the diligence and expertise of our restorative colleagues to maintain a similar level of care, which can only be accomplished with multiple specialists. The ability to work closely with your general dentist as wellensures continuity of care since this is also critical to the success of any rehabilitation.

It was this realization that prompted Dr. Wheeler to choose a new partner in Dr. Seul, as he covers areas of the field that are perfectly compatible with that of Dr. Wheeler’s. They have close working relationships with a number of local, as well as, international restorative specialists in the dental industry.

To enhance the communication between collaborating offices, Dr. Wheeler founded the Rancho Santa Fe Dental Implant Study Club in 1988. This venue allowed the referring doctors to exchange ideas on the newest techniques and methods, while achieving the best ways to provide top care for mutual patients. Now, twenty years later, as the knowledge and experience of the members of this group has increased, we have changed the venue to Dr. Wheeler and Dr. Seul’s office which is set up for educational seminars including live surgery viewing via video camera and remote monitors in the reception area. This will allow the doctors on our team an ideal opportunity to carefully treatment plan cases together with models, x-rays and computer derived images readily at hand.
