Since graduating from University of Michigan Dental School back in ’81, he has demonstrated his commitment to keeping abreast of the latest developments in the health field. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, and a contributing writer for the MDA Journal, as well as various other dental publications. Dr. Konvalinka extends his acumen to the area of professional ethics for dentistry and the medical field as a lecturer at various seminars, and as acting Chairman of the Kalamazoo Investigational Review Board, overseeing research conducted at Westside Medical Center. Dr. Konvalinka is engaged in giving back to the community, as both a member of the American Civil Liberties Union as well as various conservational organizations, which help maintain the natural beauty and wildlife of Kalamazoo and the greater Michigan area.
Placing an emphasis on preventive dental care, Dr. Konvalinka encourages his patients to come in for regularly scheduled checkups to examine the teeth, gums, and jaws, and to perform professional teeth cleanings. By coming in just two times a year, Dr. Konvalinka can monitor your oral health, and address any conditions early on, when they can be most easily and effectively treated. For our pediatric patients, we make visits to the dentist a positive experience, encouraging the establishment of good dental hygiene habits, and having fun doing it. He takes the time with parents and their children for instruction in proper techniques for brushing and flossing. He also recommends the added protection against dental decay through the application of dental sealants to the back molars (when they come in), as well as periodic fluoride treatments. Approved by the American Dental Association, dental sealants and fluoride treatment are safe, effective, and time-tested methods for helping to establish and maintain your children’s oral health.
Dr. Konvalinka is committed to having the leading edge in technology and treatments available to his patients, including providing CEREC custom crowns. When it comes to restoring the structural integrity of a compromised tooth, CEREC custom crowns offer an extremely convenient and high quality solution. Using sophisticated computer imaging software, after a digital scan is taken of your mouth, your restoration is custom designed to seamlessly match the shade, shape, and proportions of its neighboring teeth. Fabricated with the highest dental grade materials, right in the Kalamazoo dental office, CEREC crowns are just about as fast as it gets, saving you the wait, and providing extremely natural looking results!
