Welcome To Holistic Dentist in San Diego
Creating beautiful smiles and optimal health through high standards and personalized treatment.
It makes us happy to be the premier choice for compassionate, holistic dental care in the San Diego area. Offering holistic dentistry to our clients is more than just avoiding the use of mercury. Our practice seeks to help you attain your best health and well-being by ensuring that only the best practices are used in preventing and treating the dental issues that you face. Dr. Chen and our incredible team of dental professionals are committed to preserving and promoting total health. We treat the whole body, not just the teeth.
Dr. Chen views the mouth as an integral part of the body, one that plays an important role in your overall health. The presence of disease or infection, and even the dental materials used in restoring the function or enhancing the esthetics, can affect the entire body. We are extremely knowledgeable and skillful in using the materials and techniques that have been proven as safe by respected holistic organizations via evidence based research or independent scientific studies to protect your health as well as preserve your beautiful smile.
The La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry is a mercury free practice. Our patients, who travel from areas around San Diego, including Carlsbad, Vista, and beyond, also from out of California and foreign countries like Canada, China, work with us because of the level of holistic dental care we provide. More than avoiding mercury, we incorporate strong, beautiful, biocompatible materials such as ceramic, porcelain, zirconium and composites. Our dental implants are non-metal, based on durable, long-lasting zirconium oxide. Dr. Chen is one of the few local dentists offering ozone therapy, attracting patients from all areas of San Diego as well as throughout Southern California and the rest of the country.
Many people have amalgam fillings that have been in place for years. Not only does La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry NOT use amalgam mercury fillings for restorative care, we also incorporate the high standards of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) for the safe removal of existing amalgam fillings. Majority of the dental community believes that the safest solution is to leave amalgam fillings in place. While it is true that mercury vapors can be released during the removal process, there is nothing healthy about leaving mercury in the mouth.
Dr. Chen follows the strict protocol developed by the IAOMT for the removal of amalgam fillings, significantly decreasing the risk to health on both patient and dental staff throughout the process.
Whether you are experiencing tooth pain, have concerns over mercury toxicity, or would like to enhance the appearance of your smile, Dr. Chen and the staff of our La Jolla holistic dental practice can help you achieve your goals. You will feel comfortable and well cared for in our San Diego area dental office, where you are treated with personalized attention.
