Holistic Dentistry Review
The atmosphere is very nice. The staff is friendly, and very helpful.
Dr. Brand is thorough in her assessment of the dental problems that need solving. As a matter of fact, she is the very best dentist I have visited in my 68 years on this planet. I applaud her and her staff for the wonderful job they do!

Holistic or Biological Dentistry is an approach that promotes health and wellness instead of the treatment of disease. It encompasses both modern science and knowledge drawn from the world's great traditions of natural healing. Holistic Dentistry acknowledges and deals with the mind, body, and spirit of the patient, not just his or her "teeth". This recent interview may explain more.

*Fresh Breath Treatment is a comprehensive evaluation of your sinuses, oral cavity and digestive system to determine the cause of your bad breath. Course of treatment is determined and effected in one visit. It is simple, stress-free and 99% successful.
*Laser and Ozone Periodontal Treatment is a conservative effective technique to reduce inflammation, bacterial infection of gums, as well as stimulate new connective tissue and bone regeneration.
*Proper Protocol for Mercury Removal includes isolation of teeth to be worked on, high vacuum evacuation, mercury ionizer to remove mercury vapor and particles in the operatory, and supplemental separate fresh air supply for the patient. Our office is also environmentally concerned, utilizing an advanced waste collection system installed to prevent mercury from entering the public water supply. See our Mercury Fillings page for more information.
*Detoxification Protocol includes homeopathic, dietary and nutritional guidance.
*Reflexology is a natural healing art based on foot and hand massage. There are reflexes in the feet and hands which correspond to every part of the body. Not only is reflexology relaxing, but it can be extremely therapeutic. It can lessen your body aches and pains, increase circulation, and create a great diversion during your dental visit. This service is available at all visits for an additional fee.
*Detoxifying Ionizing Footbath is a gentle and effective way to rebalance positive and negative ions in the body. It removes unwanted toxins and acid waste in your cells by energizing lymph drainage and increasing circulation. It can effectively relieve pain, swelling and muscle tightness. You usually feel lighter, think more clearly and have more energy after a session. Combine this with a short session of reflexology to have a truly relaxing and therapeutic visit.
*Neuro-Linguistic Programming / Emotional Freedom Technique / Hypnosis / Guided Imagery: are different techniques to reduce anxiety and enhance relaxation. It can also be used to attain total pain control without anesthesia, on some patients. Dr. Brand is trained in these modalities.
*Nutritional Counseling: Dr. Brand is a Certified Nutritional Counselor (CNC) and can work very closely with you to accomplish many of your dietary goals. We have an extensive intake form that will need to be filled out and submitted to the office at least 2 days before your counseling appointment. Please call the office if you would like further information about this service.
