Tooth Sense describes a dentist’s professional quest for a practice based not simply on effective delivery of treatment, but on addressing all the emotional and psychological concerns that he saw his patients regularly bringing to his office. This quest has taken Jeff Oras, DMD to many unexpected places, both scientific and personal. It has led him beyond existing practice models and scientific explanations for why each patient brings what he calls their unique “signature response” to dentistry. It has led ultimately to developing a relationship- and team-based practice model which addresses this uniqueness more fully than what he found available elsewhere.

This remarkable narrative describes vividly some landmark personal early life experiences, and then his dental education and early practice years. It’s an odyssey that led him finally to identify and be guided by the remarkable biological, emotional, and intuitive activity he has named “tooth sense.”
