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

Nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Singer and his staff. With covid on the rise, I never felt uneasy about cleanliness/sanitation. Thought to all of our (and theirs) safety was obvious from the minute you walked in through your entire visit. I had an amalgam filling removed for the first time and was a little nervous, but the safety protocols for all of our safety were taken v seriously. I’ve had good and bad dentists in the past (too much dental experience really ha), Dr. Singer is GREAT. Pain free, good music, and felt very cared for! If you need a knowledgeable dentist, look no further.

I always enjoy coming to this office. Dr. Singer walks you through every step in the procedures he performs and takes his time to answer all your questions. His expertise in dental anesthesia ensures a painless treatment every single time. Dr. Singer and his assistant Laurie cooperate seamlessly and it was always a joy to watch their work even as a patient. Lily is an excellent dental hygienist and I look forward to my cleanings with her every year. I am very happy with all the treatments I have received from this clinic and I strongly recommend it to anyone who's seeking outstanding dental care.
