A Personal Note from Dr. Tom

I've spoken with Dr. Ludlow numerous times and know him to be a dedicated, well trained, experienced and caring holistic mercury free dentist. I am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and his ongoing effort to educate his patients. He also utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of his patients.

His commitment to state of the art, quality dentistry is exceptional. This, along with his concern for his patients health, his ongoing training in holistic, cosmetic, and traditional dentistry; along with his commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them.  I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a quality cosmetic and mercury free dentist.
