General Holistic Dentistry
Having a healthy, gorgeous smile all starts with our holistic approach to your dental and whole-body health. You’ll look forward to working with Dr. Patel, a holistic dentist, and our experienced, caring team! Our general dentistry services include:
- Holistic dental exams
- Cavity and gum disease evaluations and treatments
- Emergency dental care and tooth extractions
- Cleanings and 3D digital x-rays
Going to the dentist is a source of anxiety for many people. Over half of adults miss their dental appointments due to fear and anxiety. Unfortunately, dental problems only get worse if they remain untreated. Dr. Patel helps patients stay relaxed, calm, and comfortable during their visit so they can get the dental care they need without the stress. We offer a wide variety of sedation dentistry options, including:
- Traditional nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas”
- Oral sedation with a medication that will relax you
- Moderate intravenous sedation or “twilight sedation”
- General anesthesia
Invisalign Clear Braces
Crooked or misplaced teeth can affect your appearance and self-esteem. But getting metal braces can make you feel even more self-conscious during treatment. At Green Dentistry, we offer Invisalign clear braces to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted discreetly. No one will know you’re wearing braces! Our Invisalign process includes:
- Taking photos and a digital impression of your teeth
- Using the photos and impression to create a series of clear retainers designed to slowly move your teeth into their correct positions
Treatment lasts between 6-24 months depending on your individual needs.
The use of lasers in modern dentistry has transformed the practice and allows typically invasive or lengthy procedures to be completed quickly and painlessly. Lasers allow a dentist to treat certain dental conditions without “cutting” or using a scalpel. Dental lasers can reduce “gummy smiles,” whiten teeth, treat gingivitis, and more.
Laser dentistry can help:
- Reduce the risk of bacterial infection after a dental procedure
- Reduce pain and discomfort during laser dentistry procedures
- Enable patients to heal more quickly
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a very common condition but can result in severe symptoms and difficulty sleeping or feeling rested without sleep apnea treatment. During sleep apnea, the body stops breathing for several seconds. This can happen dozens or even hundreds of times a night. Sometimes the patient won’t wake when they start to breathe again, but some do. In rare cases, untreated sleep apnea can cause serious health complications and even death.
Signs of sleep apnea include:
- Never feeling like you’re rested
- Having a dry mouth or sore throat when waking
- Difficulty concentrating
We’ll Plant a Tree In Your Honor
We believe in “green dentistry with a green thumb.”
Let’s work together to help improve the environment and fight climate change.
Every year, your tree will:
- Produce 260 lbs of fresh oxygen
- Remove 25+ lbs of carbon from the atmosphere
- Provide shade and habitat for birds, squirrels, and other animals
Help us make a difference!
“The staff and doctors are super friendly! Dr. Patel was kind and walked me through every concern I had for my appointment. I love that they offer so many different services like teeth whitening, deep cleaning, and even a dental spa!”

Frequently Asked Questions
What does it mean to be a holistic dentist?
As a holistic dentist, I consider your entire physical and emotional health when preventing, diagnosing, and treating tooth and gum issues. I want to help you be healthy and have a smile you love. My office is a comfortable environment where we provide dental care that is beautiful, function, and designed to last for years. We are also respectful of your time and use advanced dental technologies that are less invasive and require less follow-up care than many traditional treatments.
When you visit Green Dentistry, we will:
- Build a partnership based on your specific health needs
- Educate and empower you to participate in your dental care plan
- Help you achieve healthy teeth and gums for life!
At Green Dentistry, we use only safe, sterile, non-toxic, mercury-free/BPA-free, biocompatible & organic materials in your dental treatment and in our office environment
I haven’t been to the dentist in a few years. Can you help me?
Absolutely! Part of our philosophy as a holistic dentist office and our approach to care is creating a welcoming, judgement-free environment. No matter how long it’s been since you’ve seen a dentist, we are here to help you get the care you need.
Why is mercury-free dentistry so important?
Mercury is a toxin and should never be in your body, especially not in your mouth as part of a dental filling! As a holistic dentist and member of the International Academy of Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), Dr. Patel has studied the damage mercury and other toxins inflict upon the body. All of the materials used in dental treatments are non-toxic and fully biocompatible and she is trained in the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings.
Do you accept insurance?
Yes! We accept a variety of insurance plans. We also accept cash, credit cards, checks, and offer a variety of financing options, including 24-month Care Credit, Lending Club and our own in-office insurance plans. If you have questions about insurance, our front desk staff is happy to help you. They will work with you to check your benefits in advance.
Is your office accessible by public transit?
Green Dentistry is a San Francisco dentist centrally located in Union Square, right in the heart of the city. Our office is just a short walk from the Powell Street BART station.
What will my first appointment be like?
We believe in educating patients and empowering them to improve their oral health. We’ll help you improve your home care routine, including tips on proper brushing and flossing technique. Next, a dental hygienist will clean your teeth. Finally, Dr. Patel will complete your examination and make recommendations for proposed dental treatments.
I’m a little nervous about seeing the dentist. Can you help?
Absolutely! As a holistic dentist, we take pride in creating a relaxing, stress-free atmosphere that’s more like a spa than a traditional dental office. We offer aromatherapy, warm neck wraps, noise-cancelling headphones, and other spa-like amenities to help you relax. But the real difference comes from our caring staff who are committed to helping you truly enjoy your visit.
