At Kinetic Patterns the dental approach is focused to identify the root cause of illnesses by utilizing the perpetuating factors that are pertinent to the patient’s situation and instilling preventative measures to help mitigate future issues and focus on overall well-being.
Dr. Elmajian will spend the initial consultation helping the patient understand their health issues through teaching about restoring health and how to properly promote awareness of well-being. During the consultation appointment, Dr. Elmajian will dive into the perpetuating factors (see below) and always welcomes questions and participation. Communication is extremely important to get your health in good standing and we encourage this as part of the learning process.
The initial consultation will cover gathering information on your present and past health issues and devise a specified biocompatible dental/medical treatment plan. The plan is generally broken into 3-phases all with varying lengths and approach that are different for each individual. It’s our mission to instill the best methods of treatment that meets our patient’s needs. Dr. Elmajian will explain your present condition, anticipated treatment plan and the associated fees.
Please come prepared with the following to the initial consultation:
- Carefully fill out new patient intake form and questionnaire before your initial appointment
- For physical therapies, wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a tank top and shorts to change into for treatment
- Refrain from wearing perfumes and colognes
- Bring dental x-rays and any lab results from the last 12 months, if available

The Perpetuating Factors
Phase 1: Diagnostic Phase
This stage involves a series of treatments directed at diagnosing your health problem, determining the overall course of treatment, and addressing immediate issues. For our diagnostic testing we use modern blood, urine, saliva and stool testing. We commonly test for heavy metals, allergies, detoxification ability and hormones. We also use other forms of testing, including heart rate variability, thermography, and dark field microscopy. As we diagnosis your condition we are also giving you treatments, and trying to find the true cause of your problems. We may begin lifestyle modification, including nutrition, detoxification and drainage, exercise and stress management.
Dental issues may need to be addressed, as many health issues begin in the mouth. An oral appliance to correct alignment problems with teeth and jaw may be indicated.
Phase 2: Treatment Phase
At this stage your immediate concerns will have been addressed, and your pain and function will have improved. Now is the time to address perpetuating factors such as nutritional deficiency, skeletal asymmetry, psychological factors, chronic infections, hormone imbalance, heavy metals etc. Often as one set of symptoms is alleviated a new set will emerge, until the process is complete. This is an expected part of the healing process and is a good sign. If you have been wearing an oral appliance, the position of your jaw will need to be maintained.
Phase 3: Stabilization Phase
Our goal in the stabilization phase is prevention of future health problems, while continuing to support your unique constitution. We recommend one maintenance visit per season, to fine-tune your health and help prevent future issues. These visits are very important and cost-effective, as they reduce the chance of other therapies and supplements in the future
