Holistic dentistry integrates conventional dentistry with a biocompatible approach. This means we use the least toxic methods and treatment options as part of biological dentistry. Biological dentistry is a philosophy and approach that puts patient health and biologically dictated practices in the forefront. Our goal at Mark Richardson Dentistry is to help patients achieve optimum oral health by examining all aspects of overall health, including nutrition, stress, and quality of life. We emphasis prevention and wellness, while also providing reliable, science and evidenced-based dental services.
Holistic dentistry include the replacement of mercury amalgam fillings in a way that is safe for the patient and the environment. We recognize that each patient is an individual, with different health challenges and immunological responses, so we adapt our treatment methods to suit the patient. This requires us to be aware of our patient’s health issues and goals, in order to serve them better.
