"Dr. Chen is truthful and honest. I am so impressed with her! You KNOW you are in the best hands possible. She's very experienced and comes highly recommended from two friends that have had dental experience with her."

Holistic dentistry is a far cry from the standard of care most of us know. In our San Diego holistic dentistry practice, we look at each patient as a whole person, not just a set of teeth and gums. We view the mouth as a part of the whole body, directly affecting general health and directly affected by general health. When providing treatment in our La Jolla dental office, Dr. Chen and our team of holistic practitioners consider various factors, including your physical and emotional needs throughout treatment.

A holistic dentist has a broad perspective when providing dental care, extending beyond the prevention or treatment of dental diseases. We think of dental care as a part of creating balance in the mind and body for a greater quality of life. In working with patients, we begin by carefully listening to their needs and concerns. Consultations involve a thorough examination and discussion of medical or health issues, as well as specific dental issues. Digital x-rays and other pertinent testing are completed as a part of reaching an accurate diagnosis of oral health.

As a holistic dentist in San Diego, Dr. Chen goes beyond the mere diagnosis and treatment of a condition. For example, cavities are not simply repaired. Dr. Chen will evaluate the root cause of cavities, possibly recommending DNA testing to determine the propensity towards dental caries and to discover the exact types of bacteria that are active in the mouth. Our team will then move forward in teaching the patient precise ways in which oral health can be improved, including special oral products and healthy lifestyle habits that can prevent problems in the future.

Traditionally, dentistry treats cavities and follows up by instructing patients on how to brush and floss teeth. Fluoride treatments or sealants may also be provided. These "tried and true" methods of dentistry are not fully successful, however. Holistic dentistry, such as is provided in our La Jolla dental practice, seeks to bring the body back into proper balance so that the smile, as well as the body, experiences better health.

Dr. Chen has served the people of San Diego with excellent holistic dentistry services for several years. Contact our La Jolla office today to schedule your appointment.
