We are more than just a dental office. We are a group of people with our own health journeys, our own stories and our own struggles for health. Our emphasis on whole health and wellness began as we ourselves struggled in our current health system with its antiquated ideas, narrow viewpoints and "doctor knows best" attitudes. And it was in our own quests to ward off illness and actively pursue healthy lifestyles that we really began to acknowledge the role we have as health care practitioners in our patients journey to wellness. Our mission is simple: Working diligently with all integrative medicine practitioners to ensure the whole body health and wellness of our patients.
Our Team, Our Earth
Our doctors, staff, assistants and front desk personnel have all had their own health stories. We are trained in biological dentistry and are committed to providing our patients with the best in safe dental materials. We are constantly aware of the toxic nature of our environments and strive to minimize these exposures at every turn. We work to minimize our carbon footprint and use eco-friendly, recycled, compostable and biodegradable materials whenever possible.
The Integrative Approach
We believe there is an intimate connection between oral health and well being. Disease, infection and sensitivity to certain materials can cause inflammation and other systemic conditions. So many times, oral health has a direct impact on the body. In our office, we do not view the mouth in isolation but as a part of a whole functioning being. For this reason, we work closely with area practitioners, both holistic and traditional, to offer a range of services and treatments tailored to the individual.
Many of our patients that come to us already working with a holistic practitioner such as naturopath, acupuncturist, chiropractor, energy worker, or homeopath. If you are looking for a holistic practitioner, we would be happy to provide a list of those in the area who are best suited for your health needs.
Mercury Free/Mercury Safe
Our team is well versed in the wide range of dental treatments available. We are a MERCURY FREE and MERCURY SAFE office and can provide testing to best determine the dental materials that work best with YOUR body. We are conservative in our approach to treatment, always starting with the least invasive option first. Committed to preserving the natural dentition, we will assist you in making the treatment choices that are the best option for you. Utilizing techniques to limit exposure to mercury, we will determine the best course of treatment for each patient individually.
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, and sealants are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
