Mercury Free, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
With over thirty years in practicing dentistry, Dr. George Schuchard combines exceptional traditional dental skills with unsurpassed intuitive talents. As one of a very few practitioners in the world committed to integrating the principles of Chinese healing arts with the most advanced contemporary research in modern holistic dentistry, Dr. Schuchard takes you to a level of dental care that truly deserves to be called ultimate. His practice is mercury free and mercury safe and is committed and dedicated to the concepts and practice of biological and health based dentistry.
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Schuchard 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, 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.
Biological/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. Schuchard 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.
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 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. Schuchard 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 and he has advanced training in many areas of holistic, cosmetic and conventional dentistry.
