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.

Dr Singer and his staff, especially Laurie saw me at once for an emergency and when I walked into the office during these scary covid times, all my fears were calmed. The practices of infection control in this practice are far above and beyond what is mandated. Dr Singer explained everything he was doing step by step and has the most comforting demeanor. I had no and have no discomfort from the treatment I received. I could not recommend his phenomenal practice more.

I came across Dr.Singer when I was looking for a holistic dentist in New Jersey and I honestly can’t be more happy with my discovery. Everyone at the office is very friendly. Dr. Singer and his staff always take the time to explain procedures or anything that I might have questions or concerns about. The office is extremely clean, they make it a point to follow strict protocols to keep the staff and patients safe.

When it comes to my health, especially dental health, I am very picky about the caregivers I choose. I completely trust Dr. Singer with my oral health and travel over an hour away for my cleanings and dental work. The entire staff is friendly, caring, and just all around amazing. I cannot thank them enough! I was also very nervous to visit due to covid but felt extremely comfortable with all the precautionary measures they've taken.
