The majority of the things done in holistic dentistry in comparison to traditional dentistry should work and last just as long.
Now that it is public knowledge that amalgam
is aprox. 50% mercury and that it may cause some health problems, what
is your opinion on that?
A lot of the substances that are used in the mixture of the restorative materials, both amalgam and some of the plastic composites, have a tendency to leach out certain toxic substances. All people have reactions to these materials, although the majority can tolerate these chemicals longer than others. People that are sensitive will react sooner, those more resistant will take a longer time, but everyone will react to those materials. Those who react sooner are luckier if the person then does something to get rid of those materials out of the body, before a serious disease develops.

I understand that not everyone that comes
to you follows the same protocols. Is it up to the patient what kind
of dentistry work is done?
We can’t impose one certain philosophy upon everyone walking into our office.
We always inform the patient about the different protocols available. However you are the one to take the final decision on what kind of dental work you request, often in conjunction with your holistic physician.
What kind of sterilization techniques do
We try to stay away from chemicals whenever possible. For everything that is not disposable we use a standard cold sterilization first and then steam sterilization. Anything that we may have to touch during the procedure, like the handles on the light is covered with plastic that is disposed of after each operation.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept Cash, VISA, Master Card, Traveler Checks, and Personal Checks. (All returned checks will be assessed a service fee of $35.00)

We gladly furnish you with an itemized bill that you then present to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please check with your insurance company, and ask what procedures are covered by your plan.
