Our Unique Approach to Dental Care

It's Not Just about Your Smile!

The terminology used to describe alternative dental care has gone through many changes in recent decades. Mercury-free dentistry is better described as mercury-safe dentistry. Holistic dentistry, biological dentistry, and whole mouth dentistry are better described as Whole Body Dentistry. After all, the mouth is very well attached to the body! This approach to dental care focuses on the connection between the health of your smile and the health of your entire body.

Improved Health and Safer Dentistry

The state of your teeth and gums can have a significant impact on body wellness. In fact, gum disease can lead to systemic conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, and low birth weight in infants. Dr. Chester Clark is a dentist who is extensively trained in standard dental care, but he does not perform techniques simply because they are traditional. By minimizing your exposure to hazards such as mercury and radiation, he can also minimize the risk of developing other serious health conditions.

"I enjoy helping people get healthier. We enjoy seeing people’s health improved and recognize that many of the procedures and materials that are used in dentistry can detract from a person’s health and longevity. The efforts we take are to ensure your long-term health.”

I've been seeing Dr. Clark since I was a little kid. I'm an adult now, and maybe not as scared of seeing the dentist! He has always been very kind, professional, and thorough with his work. The entire office is full of great people who care about their patients and their comfort. I'd recommend Dr. Clark for any age, and he is truly an amazing dentist!

How Dangerous Are Amalgam Fillings? Read This Letter from the FDA...

Statement From: Director- CDRH Offices: Office of the Center Director
Dr. Jeffrey E. Shuren, MD, JD                                          

Part of our role in protecting patients is to regularly evaluate, monitor and update scientific evidence on the risks from medical devices—including issues related to the materials used in devices, such as metals. In the case of implanted and inserted medical devices, where materials may be in contact with the body for extended periods of time, we evaluate safety issues involved with, among other things, the body’s long-term exposure to certain materials, taking into account that sometimes uncertainties remain and more research is needed.
Today, the FDA is issuing updated recommendations concerning dental amalgam and potential risks to certain high-risk individuals that may be associated with these mercury-containing fillings used to restore the missing structure and surfaces of a decayed tooth.
The FDA has found that certain groups may be at greater risk for potential harmful health effects of mercury vapor released from the device. As a result, the agency is recommending certain high-risk groups avoid getting dental amalgam whenever possible and appropriate.
