We do dentistry with your whole body health in mind. Each and every procedure we do is done in a way that supports your overall wellness.
This requires that we do more than just treat symptoms. We identify and treat root causes.
Biocompatible, Biological Dentistry
Biological dentistry is a holistic dental approach that recognizes the influence that oral health has on overall health, both physically and energetically.
So we go the extra mile to ensure that we use only biocompatible materials, especially when repairing or replacing teeth. We do not place “silver” mercury amalgam fillings, nor any other metal restorations. The composite resins we use to make tooth-colored fillings are fluoride-free and BPA-free. We do not use fluoride but offer a more comprehensive approach that emphasizes nutrition, holistic hygiene, ozone, and other more natural means that honor your active role in keeping your mouth disease-free.
When a patient chooses to have their mercury fillings replaced with biocompatible restorations, we follow strict safety protocols to minimize exposure to that potent neurotoxin.
Dr. Parsi is accredited in biological dentistry by the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT), and is certified by the IAOMT in their Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique, or SMART.
Because of his accreditation, Dr. Parsi is also well aware of how hidden oral infections can impact overall health. Issues such as lingering infection in root canal teeth and jawbone cavitations have been known to contribute to a wide array of medical issues, including autoimmune and neurological disorders and enigmatic conditions such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and multiple chemical sensitivities.
Having treated many complex mouth/body cases over the years, Dr. Parsi is both familiar and comfortable working with their physicians and other healthcare providers to coordinate care. We always want to be sure to address the dental issues in such a way as to not aggravate any systemic conditions but pave the way toward welcome, uneventful healing.
Your Bite Can Affect Your Health, Too
Of course, these are only some of the ways in which oral and overall health intersect. One often overlooked one is the health of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), parafunctional habits such as bruxing (habitual clenching and grinding, often during sleep), and even the bite can affect a person’s mouth/body health.
The bite, after all, sits at the top of the postural chain that runs from your head through your spine to your feet. When one part of this skeletal system is out of alignment, other parts are affected.
The result is typically chronic headaches and other upper body, face, and back pain, amongst other woes. Many people live with such pain for years, never realizing that the root cause of the problem is in the bite.
Simply by correcting the bite, Dr. Parsi has helped many patients over the years say goodbye to such pain for good.

Q: What is holistic dentistry?
A: Holistic dentistry, often called integrative dentistry, is an approach to dental care that considers the patient’s overall health and wellness, not just their oral health. It takes into account how dental treatments and materials can affect the rest of the body and uses non-toxic, biocompatible materials and mercury-free dental fillings to promote systemic health. Unlike general dentists who often use toxic materials and procedures that can negatively impact oral health, a holistic dentist focuses on treating the whole person, not just the oral cavity, and takes into account the patient’s overall health and well-being.
Holistic dentistry uses non-toxic, biocompatible materials and procedures that support the body’s natural healing processes, and it addresses the underlying causes of dental problems rather than just treating their symptoms. This approach can promote overall health and wellness, as dental issues can often be a sign of underlying health problems that need to be addressed. Holistic dentists also work with other healthcare practitioners to provide comprehensive care, and they often emphasize prevention and education in their approach when caring for patients.
Q: How is holistic dental treatment different from traditional dentistry?
A: Holistic dentists take a whole-body approach to dental care, looking beyond just the teeth and gums. They use non-toxic materials and natural remedies wherever possible to promote oral and systemic health. Traditional dentists, on the other hand, may focus solely on treating oral conditions and may use materials that can be harmful to the body.
Q: What are ceramic dental implants?
A: Ceramic dental implants are a type of implant made from state-of-the-art biocompatible ceramic materials, rather than metal. They are a popular choice among holistic dentists, as they are non-toxic and promote systemic health. They are also aesthetically pleasing, as they look and feel like natural teeth.
