At Green Dentistry in San Francisco you can count on high-quality dental care: the same great care you’d get from most dentists, but with one important difference.
We are a holistic practice. We provide the same services you would expect from almost any other dentist office: everything from filling cavities to dental implants to teeth whitening.
The difference is that as a holistic practice, we look at how your dental health relates to your overall health and well-being. We choose natural remedies and avoid the potentially harmful materials common to ordinary dental practices.
For just one case in point, let’s consider fluoride. Fluoride still has the approval of the Food and Drug Administration, which says that it “provides an important public health benefit by helping to reduce cavities and tooth decay.”
But we do not use fluoride, and never will. For one thing, too much can lead to discoloraton in tooth enamel, a condition called fluorisis.
More imporant, though, is that fluoride can be toxic to humans. This is particularly worrisome because the lining of the mouth is extremely absorbant. We do not use fluoride and recommend that our patients do not use toothpaste that contains it.
At Green Dentistry in San Francisco we are committed to the highest standards of dental care. We offer complete general dentistry. People throughout Sebastapol, Menlo Park, and the Peninsula also come to us for cosmetic dentistry. Please call our office to schedule an appointment today!
