What really separates the Julian Center for Comprehensive Dentistry from other Dental practices is our whole-body philosophy as it relates to a healthy mouth.
We understand there is a dual relationship between the mouth and the rest of the body – they cannot and should not be separated. Dentistry should be considered a Specialty of Medicine, not a separate entity. Dentists should be considered Oral Physicians not looked at as tooth mechanics.
In addition to understanding the connection, we also take a holistic approach to our treatment. This includes not providing toxic treatments in the mouth that may cause overall toxic health consequences. This includes using digital x-rays to reduce the amount of dental radiation, not placing toxic mercury fillings as a restorative material, not recommending root canal therapy as a solution to saving a dead tooth and not recommending or using toxic fluoride products.
We also test for biocompatibility of dental materials to determine which materials are the least reactive to your body. Although we understand there is no perfect material, there certainly are some choices that are better than others. Do other Dental offices even consider the impact dental materials may have on your overall health? Are they using materials with bisphenol A?
Finally, it is important to understand the impact your overall health has on creating optimum oral health. This is why we include a comprehensive health questionnaire, thoroughly review your health history and perform comprehensive diagnostic testing.
Our goal is to provide the highest quality of comprehensive dental care with a focus on whole-body health and longevity.
