Frequently Asked Questions
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.
You’ll love the Green Dentistry experience!
- Functional, beautiful, and long-lasting teeth
