"Giving the Bay Area Something to Smile About"
Dr. Namrata Patel's (known as Dr. Nammy) office is mercury free and mercury safe and her mission is to share information about dental wellness with her patients so that they can make educated decisions about their oral health. Her goal is to treat her patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with her patients so that they may 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/Biological dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated structures are a part of the whole body. Because of her advanced training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Nammy takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science and technical experience with a deep concern for her patients' emotional well-being and comfort.
As your Green Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Nammy 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.
