Holistic Dentistry

The word “holistic” is not a reflection of the practices and techniques used by a dentist, but of an overall philosophy of the role of oral care. The word itself comes from “wholistic” meaning “the whole.” Truly holistic dentists will educate their patients on the importance of overall health and the important part dentistry plays.

Holistic dentistry is an approach to dentistry that encompasses both modern science and knowledge drawn from the world’s greatest traditions with natural healing. It acknowledges and gives attention to the mind, body, and spirit of the patient not just his or her teeth. A holistic approach is one that promotes health and wellness instead of the treatment of disease.

It differs from traditional dentistry by considering your overall health as a key factor to feeling and looking your best. All aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry are provided including a hygienist. Dental procedures are conducted using the most advanced techniques with safe, biocompatible materials for a more natural reason to smile.

At dental wellness we aim to provide caring, high quality holistic dentistry in a relaxed, welcoming and friendly environment. Our philosophy of holistic dentistry is one that focuses on the physical affects of dental health on the body. We aim to treat the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms.

We focus on services that offer you optimal health by using biocompatible materials that work well with the chemistry in your body and minimally invasive procedures that do not harm the natural flow of your body’s healing process.

We follow the protocols for safe dentistry set out by IAOMAT (International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology). This standard assures you that your health and safety are paramount during all treatments.
