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 she uses in dental treatments are non-toxic and fully biocompatible, and she is trained in the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings.

We also accept cash, credit cards, checks, and offer several financing options, including 24-month Care Credit, Lending Club and our own in-office savings plan.

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.

Your first appointment at our San Francisco dental office will take about an hour and a half. You’ll begin by completing our new patient paperwork, including a thorough health history, health questionnaire, and privacy policy. After your appointment starts, our experienced staff will ask you questions, get to know your oral hygiene routine, and listen to your health concerns.

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.

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 is our caring team members who are committed to helping you truly enjoy your visit.
