Smiley Teeth

About 8 years ago I was searching for a dentist that would take out my amalgam fillings(the silver ones)the proper way, and this search led me to Dr. Behm. I have never been happier with those search results, he and his entire staff are fantastic, attitudes go a long way plus he cares for all of you, not just your teeth. If you live within 500 miles of this Clearwater Florida office, you need to make an appointment. People fly in from all across the country to see him. I live 11 miles and feel so blessed to be so close. I will be seeing him tomorrow to have my bite checked as I had a permanent crown placed yesterday. I look forward to going to the dentist, I never feel any pain.

DNA Appliance

The new DNA Appliance is the revolutionary approach to straight teeth, ideal structure and better breathing without braces or trays.

By wearing this removable appliance your jaw will expand and develop into its optimum natural shape and position. Having the natural arch creates more space for the tongue, teeth and creates more room for your airway allowing for better breathing and relieving physical issues such as chronic sinusitis, TMJ pain, sleep apnea, snoring, and hypopnea.

As you wear the DNA appliance system you’ll begin to notice many health improvements, including:

  • Straighter teeth– just like with traditional orthodontic braces, without the pain or inconvenience
  • Less snoring and reduced episodes of hypopnea and sleep apnea
  • Deeper, improved sleep and greater productivity
  • Fewer symptoms of TMJ disorder

How does it work?

DNA appliance system applies light intermittent vibrational forces to your teeth, helping your jaw reach its full growth potential by stimulating your own growth centers. Its purpose is to stimulate the maximum expression of our genetic growth potential.

The DNA appliance system is pain-free and comfortable. It is removable for eating and brushing but worn both day and night for the duration of the treatment.

DNA Appliance


Using a new concept called Epigenetic Orthodontics, the DNA Appliance creates gentle, natural, and holistic changes to your face to achieve the ideal structure for beauty and health. “Epigenetic Bio-Modeling” is a new term that describes how certain elements of the jaw and face can be re-aligned for more optimal function instead of just focusing on the teeth.

This holistic approach to ideal structure is superior to traditional metal braces because it treats the craniofacial, dental, and airway structures as a whole.

The DNA Appliance is available for both children and adults.

"I started having a lot of different problems, my heart would race, basically all kinds or different problems started happening, so I started doing a lot of research on root canals and it being a dead organ in your body and it made sense to me, having all those bacteria in my body streaming along, it can definitely effect other symptoms of your body. I came to the conclusion it is best to try and alleviate the whole problem and what better way to do that than to just start with what you definitely know is causing some of your aliments and some of your symptoms."
