Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling Free), Mercury Safe, Holistic, Neuromuscular, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. Grace Wu's office is mercury-free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury-safe and she is dedicated to practicing safe and healthy dentistry. Her mission is to share information about all aspects of dental wellness with her patients so that they can make educated decisions about their oral health. She fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
Holistic Dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated oral structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Given her advanced training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Wu takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, modern technology, and years of experience - with a deep concern for her patients' physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Safe Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Wu is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, and TMJ problems can have a negative impact on oral and 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, we utilize safe amalgam removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.

Whole Body Dental Philosophy
Dr. Wu's Whole Body philosophy also stresses the use of biocompatible dental materials whenever possible. She 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 Holistic - Patient First - approach to dentistry means that she treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.
Dr. Wu is a strong advocate of continuing education because it allows her to give you and your family the best, state-of-the-art dental care. Each year she takes many hours of continuing education courses in holistic and conventional dentistry in order to provide her patients with the most advanced dental care possible.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I have met and spoken with Dr. Wu and consider her to be an exceptionally well-trained, experienced and caring holistic dentist. I have a great deal of respect for her as a person and dentist and am impressed with the depth of her knowledge, training, and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health. She also utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of her patients.
Her concern for her patients health, her on-going training in biological, holistic, cosmetic (especially with the renowned LVI), 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 commitment to educating her patients and 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. Wu has taken extensive training in an exciting new dental field, neuromuscular dentistry, so be sure to ask her about it. She is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD). I encourage you to visit her website to learn more about her and her approach to healthy dentistry.
