Bale/Doneen Practice is designed to build on the strengths of the Bale/Doneen Method and NextLevel Practice and to further promote the vital importance of Oral Systemic Health. The new company will apply tools and techniques to a much wider audience through Preceptorships, interactive community events, lecturing and an upcoming, online-learning platform. The Company will assist and enhance healthcare providers’ efforts in developing thriving practices, healthy patients and balanced lifestyles. Through this work, the organization will transform the current healthcare landscape, so that individualized care can be delivered to the broadest spectrum of patients. In every effort, the Company will work to modernize preventive medicine with the wide-scale goal of providing tens of millions of people, if not more, the opportunity to live out their lives with excellent quality and free of significant arterial disease.

“The Bale/Doneen Method challenges the current standard of healthcare by proposing a disease/inflammatory treatment paradigm, rather than relying simply on a risk-factor paradigm,” said Dr. Doneen.

“Our disease-treatment paradigm is founded on discovering whether or not plaque is present in the arterial bed,” adds Dr. Bale. “If disease is present, there is risk for a heart attack or ischemic stroke. It also means there has been or still is inflammation of the arteries. Our holistic approach uncovers the cause of inflammation. Frequently, we find underlying causes such as pre-diabetes and periodontal disease. Optimal management of the causes of inflammation will result in extinguishing arterial disease.”

“All of the above mentioned healthcare issues are responsible for the number one causes of death, disability and healthcare expenditures. The wonderful news is they are all preventable,” said Dr. Doneen. “Bale/Doneen Practice will have the facilities and capacity to deliver our message, knowledge and know-how to the entire medical/dental community.”

"Amy and Brad are two genuine pioneers in a healthcare revolution that is gaining momentum every day," said Kadi. "Our dedication to the principles of Complete Health Dentistry™ at NextLevel Practice makes us a perfect, natural ally in the founding of Bale/Doneen Practice.”

"The online learning center will be a one-stop source for the most complete, interactive oral-systemic arterial wellness health training for every role in the office," said Kadi. “It will feature a remarkable library of courses for over-scheduled healthcare professionals, enabling them to remain current with the latest science and management techniques for their practices, while earning CME or CE credits.”

About the Bale/Doneen Method:
The Bale/Doneen Method challenges the current standard of care by proposing a disease treatment paradigm rather than relying solely upon the presence of risk factors for predicting the likelihood of heart attacks and strokes. That is, the current standard of care simply does not do enough to actually to prevent disease. The Bale/Doneen Method advocates optimal care for every individual patient to identify the presence of cardiovascular disease and then properly treat it. The disease treatment paradigm is founded on the discovery of whether plaque is present in the arterial bed. This indicates that the patient is at risk for heart attack, ischemic stroke or diabetes and indicates a need for treatment. Patients identified as requiring cardiovascular disease treatment are treated in an optimal care model, as is protocol with the Bale/Doneen Method.
