Holistic general dental care
Holistic dental care focuses on a patient’s whole health, not just the that of the mouth. The mouth-body connection shows us the impact one has on the other. The mouth is the portal to the body. Whatever comes in, good or bad, can spread as it travels through the body. Using this concept, techniques, procedures, and products are considered carefully to ensure patients’ health and safety. As a holistic practice, Richmond Family Dentistry utilizes non-toxic materials and methods and understands the impact on our patients. Appointments and treatments are individualized for the prevention, detection, and early treatment of dental problems. Patients are treated using procedures and techniques that are safe and best suited for their unique needs. Our team works with you to maintain the health of your mouth and body.
Holistic dentistry is not just a part of our practice, it is our overarching philosophy. Every piece of our dental care follows holistic ideas. For general dental care, our objective is to prevent, detect, and treat oral problems for the whole family. We strive to help our patients maintain our patient’s healthy smiles. Our general and family care includes routine examinations, cleanings, digital x-rays, and metal-free fillings.
Regular dental appointments include having the teeth professionally cleaned and polished. The teeth, soft tissues, and entire oral cavity are assessed to check for potential problems. Digital x-rays check for underlying issues. These routine visits are scheduled in six months intervals unless otherwise directed. The timing ensures that if issues arise in the short period between visits, they do not have time to develop into major issues. General dental care is important for the whole family. We use holistic methods to preserve the health of the mouth and body.

Individualized patient care
At Richmond Family Dentistry, we are committed to individualized patient care. We develop a sense of trust and form lifelong relationships with our patients. Patients are treated as unique individuals with their own needs. Our team of experts follows holistic practices to preserve overall health. We understand the following principles as they apply to general and holistic dental care:
- Bacteria and toxins that enter or damage the oral cavity can develop into problems for the whole body. What enters the mouth affects the entire individual.
- The same principle applies when choosing holistic therapies and materials. We utilize treatments and medications that are biocompatible, healthy, and safe. Biocompatible materials are less likely to cause adverse or allergic reactions.
- Our dental team educates patients on the appropriate care of the oral cavity and how to adjust lifestyles accordingly to promote healthy mouths and bodies.
Comprehensive, holistic dental care
Holistic dentistry has been called alternative or biological dentistry, It truly encompasses many dental practices. Many people assume holistic dental care only applies to the mercury safe dentistry. This is absolutely a piece of holistic dentistry, but more is involved. Our quality care and state-of-the-art equipment allows us to provide a range of services that contribute to oral and overall health and are tailored to meet a variety of needs.
If dental problems arise, restorative dental services may be needed. Trauma, illness, and age increase the likelihood of oral problems. To restore and protect the teeth and gums we may use metal-free crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Our dental services are comprehensive and holistic giving patients a sense of security knowing we have their health in mind.
