Claire Stagg, DDS, MS, has earned her Master’s of Science from Tufts Dental University of Medicine in Boston. This three-year program included an emphasis on head, neck and cranio facial pain.
The program’s second year comprised of a research study of 50 qualified subjects. Each participant was asked to walk with a modification to their bite. Dr. Stagg was able to prove scientifically that the bite does indeed affect the way we walk. “This is something dear to my basic practice philosophy – it is all connected,” states Stagg.
Dr. Stagg feels that it is important to remember that each patient is an individual and problems should be addressed to suit each person’s needs. “A patient’s issues could start from the mouth or the feet,” states Dr. Stagg. “Hence the need to work from a multi-therapeutic level involving chiropractors, physical therapists, acupuncturists, craniosacral therapists, nutritionists and so forth.”
“I would like to thank all my patients, friends, family, and staff for helping me accomplish this great feat,” shares Dr. Stagg. “A heartfelt thanks to the community for their support and I look forward to helping patients accomplish life-enhancing smiles!”
