Artistic Impressions in Dentistry: A Mercury Free, Holistic Dental Practice
Dr. Terecita Dean is mercury free and mercury safe. Her philosophy is to heal the teeth and gums, support the overall health of the mouth, and restore the mouth to optimal health. Her mission is to share information about wellness with her patients so that they may make informed choices about their oral health.
Dr. Dean has extensive training in all aspects of dentistry and takes a unique Whole Body approach to holistic oral health care. This Whole Body approach stresses the use of healthy and safe dental materials and offers you many treatment options.
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Dean is well aware of the critically important relationship between oral and overall health and focuses on the fact that mercury vapor, dental infections and other oral health issues can have a negative impact on your 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), the Holistic Dental Association (HDA) 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. Dean 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/Holistic 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. Dean is a strong advocate of continuing education because it allows her to give you, and your family, the most modern and healthy dental care. Each year she takes many hours of advanced education courses and she has advanced training in many areas of biological, cosmetic and traditional dentistry. She will work with other health professionals to support your total health.
