Truth: We are proud to be a holistic focused dental clinic because there are more options, not less, for the best materials and products. In some cases, we use conventional materials many other dentists use because we haven’t found a better material. When we do find a better material, or new technology, we use those instead of conventional ones.
We have a wide selection of products that are superior to conventional ones because they are better for the health of your body, last longer and provide greater success over the long term.
Holistic Dentists have dogmatic or extreme views on dental care.
Truth: Like any doctor, there will variations on views as to the best care and some can be black and white in their thinking. Holistic dentists run the spectrum in terms of the views and practices.
We believe the best care isn’t black or white, or one-size-fits all. Our approach is flexible, thoughtful and based on scientific facts. We take the time to educate our patients as to the best options possible. Then together with you, we work to find the very best solution to your unique needs and requests. We aren’t extreme. We are pragmatic.
If I don’t care about the holistic approach, then Studio Z Dental isn’t a good fit for me.
