Mercury Free, Mercury Safe, Holistic, Esthetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. Herb Mills' office is mercury free and mercury safe and he is dedicated to the practice of healthy dentistry. His goal is to treat his patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with his patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health. He fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Mills is aware that mercury vapor and dental infections can have a negative impact on overall health. Because of this concern, we focus on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings in a safe way. For information about why it's important to use a mercury safe dentist, Click Here.
To accomplish this, we utilize removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations. For more information about why we use safe removal protocols and an explanation of what they are, Click Here.
Holistic dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Dr. Mills also takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science and technical experience with a deep concern for his patients' emotional well-being and comfort. He practices Minimally Invasive Dentistry, a new way of treating tooth decay that attempts to preservice as much of the original tooth as possible. It involves much less drilling of the teeth and keeps the outside of the tooth as natural looking as possible.
This Whole Body philosophy stresses the use of safe biocompatible dental materials whenever possible. He also works closely with highly qualified health professionals to assist him in his efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. His Health-Focused approach to dentistry means that he treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.
Dr. Mills believes that continuing education is a powerful tool that allows him to give you and your family the best, state-of-the-art dental care. Each year he takes many hours of continuing education courses in holistic and traditional dentistry in order to provide his patients with the most advanced dental care possible.
