Philosophy

We believe in treating our patients as a whole person. We perform dental treatments that are as conservative as possible to protect the natural tooth structure. We believe that it is important that our patients avoid contact with any toxic dental materials. We focus on the long-term effects of all procedures for the safety and health of our patients.

As holistic dentists, we look to the underlying problems that could be the cause of tooth, gum, and oral health issues, rather than just treating the symptoms. Our focus on patient health includes testing for biocompatibility prior to performing any implant, filling, crown, or other treatment.

We have the most advanced technology to make your appointment smooth, including electronic check-in – but it doesn’t stop there.

We believe every patient deserves the best in dental care, and every member of our team is committed to achieving that goal.

Holistic Dentistry

Holistic dentistry is an approach that treats the patient as a whole system and emphasizes the impact dental infections and toxins can have on the patient’s overall health. Holistic dentists focus on the use of non-toxic restorative materials, and how oral health can affect the entire body.

Different from Others

Not all dentists are focused on the long-term effects dentistry can have on the entire body. While traditional dentistry involves treating symptoms in the teeth and gums, holistic dentistry also includes treating underlying problems that cause symptoms in the mouth, while ensuring that work done on the mouth does not have an adverse effect on overall health.

Mercury Myth

Mercury amalgam fillings are typically covered by insurance, last longer, and are easier to place than composite fillings. Traditional dentists may also point to statements made by the American Dental Association (ADA) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that the mercury in amalgam fillings is stabilized and safe, leaking in only small amounts. Holistic dentists understand that mercury is toxic, even in small amounts, and that mercury amalgam fillings put pressure on the tooth that can cause weakening.

Root Canal Alternative

While traditional dentists will recommend root canal therapy to save a severely decayed tooth, holistic dentists may not recommend root canals, as they can have adverse health effects in the long run. Dr. Molayem performs MTA pulp therapy as a safer alternative.

Cleanings & Prevention

Even with the most dedicated brushing and flossing, your teeth need a professional cleaning at least every six months. For some patients, more frequently cleanings may be necessary. A thorough, professional cleaning will remove plaque and tartar, bringing back the shine and helping to prevent the need for dental treatment in the future.
