Holistic Dentistry
Holistic/Biological dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Dr. Marder takes a Whole-Body approach to dentistry and sees the mouth as a reflection of the health of the body.

Whole Body Dental Philosophy
Because of our holistic philosophy, we combine cutting-edge dental science and technical expertise with our concern for every patient's overall health, well-being and comfort. This Whole Body approach stresses the use of safe dental materials, techniques and equipment. Our goal is to share our information and expertise about dental wellness with our patients so that they may make informed and healthy choices about their dental treatment.

Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Marder is well aware of the critically important relationship between oral and overall health and understands that mercury vapor and dental infections can have a negative effect on overall health. Our approach to biological dentistry means that we treat the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures with specific regard to how that treatment will effect the entire body. Because of our commitment to whole body care, our office also has an on-site naturopath, cranial therapist and massage therapist which helps us return our patients to optimal health. 

We remove amalgam (silver) fillings safely, based on the recommendations of the renowned International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), the Holistic Dental Association (HDA), and other prominent holistic dental organizations.
