Bringing Dentistry Out of the Ice Age
My office is unique, and our services are NOT for everyone. My style and level of care is best-suited to a specific type of dental patient. Please read the following section to see if that patient is you:
I specialize in saving your natural teeth. I also concentrate on helping patients avoid root canals. I NEVER grind teeth down to place a crown, but I will replace old metal crowns if requested by the patient. Crowns can cause complications, so I only do onlays, and reduce teeth no more than ABSOLUTELY necessary by using biomimetic technology.
I do not offer cleanings to patients until ALL their mercury fillings are completely removed, as cleaning teeth with amalgam fillings releases a tremendous amount of mercury.
ANY OFFICE OFFERING TO CLEAN YOUR TEETH WHILE YOU HAVE SILVER/MERCURY FILLINGS IN YOUR MOUTH IS AN OFFICE YOU SHOULD BE VERY WEARY OF. People cleaning the teeth where there are mercury fillings must be TERRIFICALLY careful not to scrape, polish or put pressure or abrasion on mercury (learn more about this on our safe mercury removal page
By saving your natural teeth, I help you save money in the long term. You can learn more about this on my Value vs Price page.
My four areas of expertise, and main areas of focus, are:
- Safe removal of mercury fillings
- Complex full-mouth reconstruction
- Ultra-thin veneers
- Biomimetic and holistic restorations
I perform many other services such as dentures, implants, bridges, etc, but any surgeries that need to be done would be referred to a specialist and overseen by myself. I generally give EXPLICIT instructions to the specialist to make sure your services are as holistic as possible and also minimally-invasive.
I work with vetted professionals who have proven to me, time and time again, that they know what they are doing.
THE FIRST APPOINTMENT:
Most of the time we will start with the $100 Full Mouth Series of xrays with a free evaluation. If you've already seen all the free course videos, you're really eager to get started and finances are not a consideration then we can skip straight to the in-person evaluation, but the $100 for the Full Mouth Series actually comes off the full exam price of $295. So starting there makes the most sense for most people - $100 Full mouth Series and free exam, then we move forward from there to a $195 in-person exam.
The product of my exam is: all the details and a sequence of what you need to do to have a full, functional and healthy mouth for life – without having to sacrifice your general health to achieve it. I will have every facet of your treatment plan covered, including referral to any service we do not perform in-house. I personally oversee your entire treatment plan, and we coordinate everything for you.
If you are coming to see us ONLY for cosmetic procedures, I offer a free 30-minute consultation. It is only offered if you need no restorative work – just cosmetic treatments. This would not include a full exam or xrays. This is only an option if you have NO restorative work in your mouth and you are only looking to change the appearance of your teeth.
My entire exam process is based on the three reasons people lose their teeth. These are:
- Gum disease
- Bad bite
Both my office manager and I are specially trained in handling patients who have anxiety or difficulty encountering dental treatment. A vast number of people fall into this category, and we believe this is an important way to set ourselves apart from other practices.
All dentistry in my office is done slowly and even the anesthetic procedure is done slowly. I'm not running in-between operatories and going 500 miles per hour.
When I'm with a patient, it takes the time it takes.
This is the EXACT reason why most dentists don't deliver TRUE biomimetic services: they simply don't think they have the time.
The only way to be truly biomimetic is by giving plenty of time.
