Mercury Free, Holistic, Health-Centered Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. Liliane Shepard practices biological, mercury free and mercury safe dentistry and her mission is to share information about dental wellness with her patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health. Dr. Shepard has over 25 years of dental experience.
Biological 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. Because of her advanced training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Shepard takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science and technical experience with a deep concern for her patients' physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Shepard 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. To accomplish this, she utilizes removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent holistic dental organizations.
This Whole Body philosophy stresses the use of safe biocompatible dental materials and non-invasive treatment whenever possible. Dr. Shepard also works closely with highly qualified health professionals to assist her in her efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. Her Biological approach to dental treatment means that she treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.
Dr. Shepard is a strong advocate of continuing education because it allows her to give you, and your family, the most modern and state-of-the-art dental care. Each year she takes many hours of continuing education courses and she has advanced training in many areas of biological, cosmetic and traditional dentistry.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I've spoken with Dr. Liliane and she is a dedicated, well trained, experienced and caring holistic dentist. I am impressed with the depth of her knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and her ongoing effort to educate her patients. She also utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of her patients.
Her concern for her patients health, her ongoing training in holistic, cosmetic, and traditional dentistry; along with her commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings, makes her ideally suited to remove and replace them. I am especially impressed with her dedication to mercury safe dentistry as it is such an important part of oral and overall health. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury free dentist.
Dr. Shepard is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury Free Dentists (IAMFD). When you visit her office please tell her where you found out about her and say hello to her for me. Thanks!
