Holistic Dentistry

Are you looking for a dental practice that truly cares about your well-being, mind, body, and spirit? Are you searching for a more integrated and wholesome dental practice? Here at Bravo Smiles, Tom Flath DDS we see our patients as individuals and value their overall health and wellness. Traditional dental offices and dentists are often guilty of only focusing on their given specialties, isolating the mouth from the rest of the body. To us, this does not make sense. Every single part of the body is interconnected. It is our goal to do our very best to provide you with treatment options that promote full body wellness.

What is Holistic Dentistry

Holistic dentistry also referred to as biological, alternative, or biocompatible dentistry unites modern medicine with natural medicine. Sometimes we are called green or organic dentists. No matter what you call us, Bravo Smiles, Tom Flath DDS is here to offer you conscientious treatments that are probably unavailable at traditional offices, such as cranial sacral therapy, herbal remedies, acupuncture and homeopathic therapy.

What We Believe In

Every holistic practice is distinctive. We all have different philosophies and promote different therapies. Some of the solutions we might present you with may seem controversial or unfamiliar. At Bravo Smiles, Tom Flath DDS we want you to feel welcome and comfortable, so feel free to ask us any questions.

Below are just a few of our convictions:
•  Placing an emphasis on preventative treatment over reactive treatment.
•  Minimally invasive procedures.
•  Advocating personal responsibility and optimal, overall health
•  BPA-free fillings
•  Safely removing mercury amalgam fillings.
•  Dental materials that are biocompatible, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly.

•  Implementing a healthy, nutritious diet that reverses and prevents dental degeneration,
•  Treating dental malocclusion by promoting physical balance.
•  Preventing and treating periodontal disease by combating it at its biological root.
•  Promoting awareness and education.

•  Amalgam- A mercury alloy found in fillings
•  Toxic and unnecessary treatments for periodontal disease.

Why Choose a Holistic Dentist

Too often, when you walk into a hospital or a modern medical practice, regardless of discipline, you are viewed as just a number and a name. The experience of being boiled down to a sterile, medical chart can be dehumanizing. Modern medical practitioners like to compartmentalize. They look at your concerns in a very narrow manner, isolating your issue to their field of specialty. These doctors also to rely on aggressive, one-size-fits-all treatments.
At Bravo Smiles, Tom Flath DDS we see your dental concerns as an extension of your whole body. Our goal is to do everything we can to help you avoid unnecessary, reactive procedures and medications. We promote long-term health and wellness. It is our goal that when you walk out of our office, you will be revitalized by a shared commitment to nurturing your healthy smile.
