Mercury-Free (Amalgam Free), Mercury-Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. Cori Crider practices cosmetic, holistic, mercury free (amalgam/silver filling-free) dentistry. Her mission is to treat her patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with her patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health. She fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
Holistic/Healthy Dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated oral structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship we offer a wide range of state of treatment options. Due to her advanced training and emphasis on both oral and total health, Dr. Crider takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, modern technology, and dental experience with a deep concern for her patients’ physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Amalgam Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Crider is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, and TMJ (bite) problems can have a negative impact on overall health. Because of this concern, we focus on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings in a safe way.
To accomplish this, she utilizes removal protocols based on recommendations of a number of prominent holistic dental organizations. For information about why it's important to use a mercury safe dentist, Click Here.
Whole Body Dentistry Philosophy
Her Whole Body, healthy dental treatment philosophy stresses the use of best dental materials and non-invasive treatment whenever possible. She also works closely with highly qualified health practitioners to assist her in her efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. Her Holistic - Patient First approach to dental treatment means that she treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures with regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.
Dr. Crider is a strong advocate of continuing education because it allows her to give you and your family the most modern, state-of-the-art dental care.

About Dr. Crider
I am excited to bring the concept of health and prevention to my patients in a comfortable and welcoming setting. I am dedicated to providing you and your family with the best care possible utilizing the latest and most innovative the science of dentistry has to offer in education, equipment, technique and professional team. After graduating with honors from the University of Michigan Dental School in 1988 I accepted a Clinical Instructor position with the University of Michigan teaching the leading edge of dentistry for several years. I am now dedicated to my full time practice in general and adult restorative dentistry. I have taken extensive advanced training in implant techniques, TMJ disorders, and cosmetic dentistry from world leaders in the field. The newest techniques in restoring a beautiful smile are available to you.
We see patients every day who are afraid of dentists. You aren't alone! It's one of the most common reasons patients don't see the dentist regularly and it is an obstacle I will work with you to overcome so you can get the treatment you need. We have nitrous oxide (laughing gas) readily available, and I can also prescribe medications to relax you the night before and the day of your appointments. That way, you can feel fully rested and relaxed when you arrive.

NEW! Dr. Tom McGuire's new YouTube Video, Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth conclusively proves that amalgam/silver fillings not only release toxic mercury vapor - but that the common act of brushing just one amalgam filling - will release more mercury than allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace! It also tells you what you can do about it.Click Here to watch this amazing video demonstration - and don’t forget to tell your friends and family!
