Total Health Dental Care hopes to enhance our vibrant Bay Area community. There’s a reason why we’re here. Dr. H. opened his first office in Piedmont because he wanted a practice in a quaint neighborhood with strong community ties. He wanted to know his neighborhoods and earn their trust. He wanted to give back by providing topnotch holistic dentistry. Today, Total Health’s offices are within walking distance from each other. Although we are a growing practice, we never want to stop being a neighborhood dentist.
At Total Health Dental Care, we practice “whole-person” dentistry and understand that you are more than just a mouth. In fact, your oral health is directly connected to the rest of your body. Our practice refers to this as holistic-fusion, a method of care which gives the dentists all the advantages of modern dentistry with a focus on root causes. We use all organic materials and mercury-free fillings as well as herbal tinctures to promote natural healing.
More than 60 years ago, a dentist named Weston Price traveled the globe photographing and documenting the connection between healthy bodies and mouths. Around the planet Price consistently found that people and cultures with excellent oral health and beautiful smiles were practically free of bodily disease. That simple principle is the heart of Total Health Dental Care.
Choosing Total Health means choosing a more natural, less toxic life. Holistic dentistry encourages wellness by eliminating harmful chemicals and promoting physical and mental health through diet, exercise and mindfulness. We offer free in-office massage, acupuncture, nutrition counseling and meditation.
Each of our offices has a lending library with bestsellers on health, happiness and natural healing. Browse our collection and check out a copy on herbal medicine, bone broth, intermittent fasting, body balance, oil pulling, or the mind body connection. Come in anytime, make yourself an herbal tea and relax.
