Sometimes things have to completely fall apart in order for new pathways to form before us and as we walk down that path, a veil is slowly lifted so that we can awaken to what else is out there.

Our journey has been one of growth and exploration and it wasn’t always biological and holistic. We started out the traditional route of basic sciences (biology, anatomy) and studied our way through dental school followed by many years of practicing allopathic dentistry.  We continued our education in new technologies, new techniques and heightened our existing skills with time and experience. No matter how much we practiced and studied, the feeling that there was more to this lingered in the back of our minds and hearts.

It wasn’t enough to just take patients out of pain, boost their self-confidence with a Hollywood smile, and just treat the teeth by placing band-aids on their symptoms. We wanted to heal the patients completely. We wanted to solve the root cause and connect the dots so that our patients could make the best possible medical choices for themselves – because ultimately it is a medical choice and not just dental. Dentistry is no longer just cavities and braces, it is connected with so much more.

As a holistic office, we recognize that the mouth is connected to the body and that it cannot be viewed as an independent system. It is a reflection of the overall health of the body and much can be done to impact it both positively and negatively.

Root Cause

4

Rather than the quick fix approach of putting band aids on symptoms, we look for the root cause so that you could be empowered to make the best possible health choices.

Compassionate Care

5

We assist you on your healing and wellness journey with grace, reverence, and compassion. Instead of being a high-volume driven practice, we mindfully schedule your appointments to provide quality time to deliver high-touch dental care.

Uniquely Personalized

6

We view the practitioner-person relationship as a collaborative partnership where we focus on the unique needs of each person, honoring their health sovereignty and autonomy.

Integrative Approach

By embodying the perspective that the mouth is the gateway to the entire body, it is our utmost intention to recognize you as a whole person and not only view you as your teeth.

Our guiding philosophy is to customize our treatments combining the best of modern dentistry and complementary therapies. We have found that this approach is highly effective for all of our patients and is particularly helpful for people with complex dental problems, complex chronic health issues or a combination of both. 

Ultimately you are always empowered to be responsible for your own health. You can choose your health care partners consciously. You can reunite with a part of your body that has been disenfranchised and polluted with toxins. You can reclaim your own unity and wholeness by taking the time to notice what goes into your mouth and how it comes out of it. Essentially, your mouth is a sacred portal through which breath, mantra and food travel in and out of your body.
