Green Dentistry in San Francisco is a holistic practice that is committed to the dental and overall health of our patients.
Every checkup here will include a thorough inspection of your teeth and gums, of course. But the relationship between the health of your mouth and the rest of your body is by now well-established, so we take an interest in your general health, too. Even your emotions will contribute to your well-being, so we may ask you about that, as well as your diet and how much exercise you’re getting.
You’ll hear holistic dentistry referred to sometimes as “alternative.” It isn’t alternative to us! Other terms include biological and natural dentistry.
One of the biggest differences between holistic and mainstream dentistry is that we do not use many of the materials and treatments an ordinary dentist would use. We do not use fluoride or metal fillings, for example. Fluoride can build up in the body and lead to other health issues down the road. Metal fillings contain mercury, which even in tiny amounts can be toxic.
Anyone trying to live a healthier, more natural lifestyle will find a lot to like at Green Dentistry in San Francisco. Our services include complete general dentistry, and people from Sebastapol, Menlo Park, and the Peninsula also come to us for cosmetic dentistry – from a holistic approach, of course.
