Dr Yiannios' office is mercury free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury safe and he is dedicated to the practice of health-based 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 can make educated decisions about their oral health. He fully understands the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Yiannios is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, and TMJ (bite) problems can have a negative impact on oral and overall health. Because of these concerns, 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 safe & proven 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 protocols to remove amalgam fillings and an explanation of what they are, Click Here.
Holistic/Biological 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 treatment options. Dr. Yiannios also 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 his patients' physical health and emotional well-being and comfort.
Whole Body Dental Philosophy
This Whole Body philosophy stresses the use of 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 - Patient First approach to holistic 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. Yiannios 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, cosmetic, and conventional dentistry in order to provide his patients with the most advanced dental care possible.

About Dr. Yiannios
Dr. Yiannios has devoted his dental career to practicing healthy, holistic, non-invasive, biocompatible dentistry. He is also a proponent of making the dental office occupationally safe as possible regarding mercury and he strives to protect the patient, the staff, and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury at the dental office.
Though highly successful in his Branson, MO practice, in late 2013, Dr. Nick and his beautiful wife and partner in life Valana, made the decision to open a new, state-of-the-art dental practice in North West Arkansas, where others in their family now reside. With one of their sons - who is a University of Arkansas law school graduate and practicing attorney in North West Arkansas (NWA), and with another son moving to Bentonville, AR, it simply made sense to make a mid-career move.
The thought of treating patients who are also transplants from other regions of the country sounded appealing to Dr. Nick, since he too had followed this type of geographic path himself. Bringing many general, Mercury Free (amalgam filling free) and Mercury Safe, TMD, esthetic and cosmetic dental treatments that do not presently exist in NWA, coupled with his passion for clinical dentistry and Valana’s vast experience in efficiency of systems gleaned from her many years in the business world; this combination will nicely serve the families of the progressive NWA metroplex.
Intuitively, a dental practice that respects the patient’s time, desires, and important regard for optimum oral health will quickly earn the respect of NWA residents and beyond. Additionally, a larger airport that could assist in connecting those patients who travel from afar to seek treatment in the practice was just what Dr. Nick ordered!To learn more about Dr. Nick and his philosophy of healthy dentistry please Click Here

NEW! Dr. Tom McGuire's new Video, Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth conclusively proves that amalgam/silver fillings not only release toxic mercury vapor - but that the common act of brushing just one amalgam filling - will release more mercury than allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace! It also tells you what you can do about it. Click Here to watch this amazing video demonstration - and don’t forget to tell your friends and family!
