At Dr. Joel Singer DMD, we practice an alternative approach to dentistry where we recognize the connection between the health of your teeth and gums with your overall health. This includes the use of safe, non-toxic restorative materials and technology, the prevention and elimination or infections, and support of your overall well-being.

While we do practice standard dentistry, we include holistic measures as an added benefit to patients. Here are 7 questions you should always ask your holistic dentist:

  • null

    Is your office mercury-free/mercury-safe?

    Most offices claim to be “mercury-free” because they no longer place Amalgam(silver-mercury fillings). A Mercury-Safe practice will have specfic protocols and techniques to protect you, while safely treating teeth that have mercury fillings present.

    Our office is Mercury-Safe and has been for about 20 years!

  • null

    Is the doctor part of the IAOMT?

    The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology is a global non-profit network of dentists, health professionals, and scientists who research the biocompatibility of dental products, including the risks of mercury fillings, fluoride, root canals, and jawbone osteonecrosis.
    Dr. Joel Singer is an Accredited long-term member of the IAOMT having passed both a written and oral board examination with the IAOMT credentialing committee.

  • null

    Is your office SMART certified?

    SMART is the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique as described and regulation by the IAOMT. Our office has been practicing safe mercury amalgam removal as per IAOMT recommendations for 20 years, even before they began SMART certification.

  • null

    Does the office use digital x-rays?

    Digital dental x-rays use up to 90% less radiation than traditional dental x-rays. We have invested in this technology for the many benefits it offers, most importantly your health and safety. Dental x-rays are used to evaluate teeth for cavities, to verify the fit of fillings and crowns, to rule out cysts and tumors and more. Digital x-rays give us immediate, high quality images that are easily stored and shared and offer benefits that greatly outweigh the minimal risk as compared to the x-rays we were taking just several years ago.

  • null

    Do you use biocompatible materials?

    Yes, the materials we’ve chosen to use in our office are free of heavy metals, BPA-free and non-toxic. Biocompatibility testing via blood test is an option for those with unusual allergies or sensitivities.

  • null

    Does this office offer Ozone?

    Ozone is “super-charged” oxygen. It is non-toxic, yet it kills pathogens (bacteria, viruses, mold…) much more effectively than bleach, and safely with no toxic by-products. It is produced in our office using specific medical grade equipment and medical oxygen. It is prepared as ozonized water, ozone gas and ozone infused oils. We use it in our office for many procedures including periodontal (gum) disease tratement, disinfecting cavities and root canal treatment, in all the water used in treatment and more.

  • null

    Does your office provide root canal treatment?

    Endodontic, or root canal theory is somewhat controversial in Holistic Dentistry. When the nerve inside a tooth is damaged due to deep cavity or trauma, then, a decision has to be made whether to treat and keep the tooth, or extract the tooth. Some teeth should not be kept; some infected teeth will never heal properly, and some patients should probably not have a root canal treatment. Every patient and every situation is different, and Dr. Joel Singer will offer the guidance you need to make the best decision for you. When we choose to do root canal therapy we use ozone water and gas to disinfect the tooth as well as sealing the tooth with biocompatible root canal fillers.

EVERY PATIENT HAS A STORY

I just started going to Dr. Singer. He and his teams views on health, nutrition and lifestyle management are very much in line with my own. It's really hard to find solid Dentist who is also holistic. So far I really like the practice and am looking forward to working with them for years to come.

I have been a patient for a while and have only good things to say about Dr. Singer’s practice. The office is immaculate and the entire staff is friendly, efficient, caring and highly skilled. Dr. Singer takes time and explains what he’s doing every step of the way and after procedures he follows up himself to make sure all is well which it always is. I recently needed an emergency visit during the pandemic and knew that his office would be safe to visit because of their history of best hygienic practices. They now adhere to an even higher standard ensuring the safety of staff and patients alike.
Lynn Buzzerio
I throughly enjoyed my visit with Dr. Singer and his team. From my first scheduling call with Laurie to getting set up with Kelly and to my examination with Dr. Singer everything was seamless.When going to a new doctor/dentist office one is always worried that the staff can be unfriendly at times. However, Dr. Singer’s team was so warm and friendly which made me feel very comfortable.If you’re looking for a new dentist I would highly recommend Dr. Singer!

I’ve been to about 10 dentists, dr singer has been my favorite thus far. He has the latest technology, ozonated water, and leans in a more natural direction. He’s IAOMT accredited, is always very respectful of my time & gets me right in, is very direct & transparent with my teeth & has excellent bedside manner. Give him a try, I wholeheartedly recommend 🙏
