Whole Body Approach to Your Oral Health
Our holistic approach to dental treatment focuses on the need for us to care for your health and not just fill a hole. We intertwine this with a genuine caring approach that aims to make every visit to the dentist a relaxing experience.
Some patients take the approach that dentistry should be used purely as an intervention when a problem occurs. We take the approach that caring for your oral health throughout your life will help prevent problems from occurring in the future.
As holistic dentists we aim to provide the highest quality dentistry using the most modern techniques and equipment. Where possible we will offer you a range of choices including materials that are as bio-compatible as possible including mercury-free fillings.

What is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic dentistry, an alternative approach to dentistry, believes that your dental health and your total health are linked. This method focuses on a person's entire health and wellness rather than only treating the oral condition. It employs harmless, restorative materials to eliminate mouth infections and improve a person's general health.
The following are the fundamental principles of holistic dentistry.
- Nutritional therapy can help prevent and treat degenerative dental disease.
- The use of potentially irritating and hazardous ingredients in dental procedures is being phased out.
- Bite and TMJ treatment and prevention.
- Gum disease prevention at the biological level.
We're Holistic, Not Organic
At Superior Smiles we focus on the overall health of our patients but will never compromise on quality materials that are safe and effective. Many people can mistake holistic for being "organic" where certain medical grade materials are not used in procedures like fillings and implants. We do still use the most modern and innovative materials in our procedures but will accompany every service with a general check-up on your health and can assist you in improving your diet and physical health.
