What is Integrative Dentistry?
A little of this & a little of that — the CHOICE is yours
Asking questions and seeking answers
There’s no quick and easy way to explain what integrative dentistry really means. It’s not a specific treatment or methodology. It’s more like a holistic philosophy we apply to everything we do at our practice.
Working together with an open mind, we’ll search for the truth we need to make the best choice for your health and wellness:
- Should mercury amalgam fillings be removed? If so, how can we do so safely?
- What products and chemicals should we be putting in our bodies?
- Is a root canal always the best option for everyone?
- What can we do that other dentists may overlook, ignore, or outright reject?
- Integrative dentistry is a unique way of approaching an age-old challenge: How can you live a healthy and happy life?
- What effect do oral bacteria have on your health and wellness?
- How can we treat TMJ pain without surgery?
- What causes headaches and migraines and how may we prevent them?
- How worried should we be about root canal toxicity?
There’s no black and white answer. It’s all about finding a path that’s right for you.
Dentistry is a spectrum
Most widely practiced. Many treatments have stood the test of time, others with questionable motives. Slow to embrace new ideas. They may treat symptoms without resolving underlying causes. But let’s not throw out the baby with the bathwater!
Holistic & biologic
New concerns about traditional protocols, remembering age-old remedies that work, emphasizing a whole-body approach. Who doesn’t need a little of this in their treatment decision?
Makes the decision yours. Takes the best of the available technologies, emphasizes biocompatibility, always considers the oral-systemic connection, and your whole body health, Voila— the best solution for you.
That’s right, at Choices in Dentistry you are in control. We will work with you and help you understand your options, but ultimately the choice is yours.

Selected integrative dental services
Sparing use of digital x-rays
Digital x-rays are high-tech, fast, and use a fraction of the radiation of traditional films. But we don’t take too many! X-rays don’t always tell the whole story, so we only recommend them when we are confident they will provide valuable information.
All-natural ozone therapy
A powerful and natural oxidant, ozone can be used to greatly reduce the risk of infection and contamination during dental procedures. Applied before treatment, ozone creates a sterile environment in your mouth without medicine or antibiotics.
S.M.A.R.T. mercury removal
Mercury is a known toxin, so of course we don’t use it! But what if you want to go further and remove the ones you have? We are trained to safely remove them using the S.M.A.R.T. protocol. Specialized equipment prevents toxic mercury from entering your body and contaminating our office’s atmosphere.
