A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know of Dr. Rockefeller and consider her to be a highly trained, experienced and skilled holistic dentist. I am impressed with the depth of her knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and her effort to educate her patients. She utilizes her knowledge and training when designing dental treatment plans for her patients.
Her ongoing training in holistic, cosmetic and traditional dentistry and her concern for the safe removal of amalgam fillings makes her ideally suited to remove and replace them. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a caring health focused, mercury free and mercury safe dentist.
She is active in the efforts to educate the public that dental treatment is critically important to overall health and to advance healthy, biocompatible dentistry.
