What is Holistic Dentistry?


Our approach to Holistic Dental Care considers how our oral health affects our whole body, and vice versa.  We treat oral problems by focusing on all aspects of your oral health.  We focus on not just what problems or conditions have developed, but why they have developed.  We provide evidence-based dental care based on individualized risk assessments, by doing so we can improve whole-body health.

Amalgam Removal

Amalgam Free and Safe Amalgam Removal


Our practice is amalgam free. We offer removal and replacement of silver fillings that are unhealthy or pose risk to the patient’s health. We utilize SAFE amalgam removal principles to minimize exposure to patients and our team during these procedures.

Biocompatible Dental Materials


We always review options for dental restorative materials with our patients to ensure we are offering you the safest materials possible that you feel good about what you are putting in your body.  We can help you to select materials that have been shown clinically to be the most biologically friendly and biocompatible for your mouth and body. 

Beyond the Repair Model


Many patients and healthcare providers get stuck in a frustrating cycle of repair model dentistry. A cavity develops, a filling is placed, a tooth cracks, a crown is done. This can lead to significant time and investment without actually improving a patient’s health. Our approach is to diagnose why problems arise, then fix them.


If for example, a cavity develops, we may conduct a caries risk assessment that evaluates a patient’s diet, saliva pH and mineral content, oral bacterial load, fluoride exposure, sources of intrinsic and extrinsic acidity and then begins treatment to address the underlying causes of why that patient developed a cavity in the first place. By treating the root causes of disease we can improve a patient’s oral health and see longer-lasting more successful dental treatments. It is in this way that our comprehensive risk-assessment and custom-crafted preventive recommendations can help move patient’s move beyond the repair model of dentistry and improve their oral health and long-term outcomes.

Biomimetic Dentistry


Biomimetic Dentistry focuses on replicating the physical and esthetic characteristics and properties of our natural teeth. We focus on placing dental restorations that are as close as possible anatomically, esthetically, and functionally to our natural teeth.


Utilizing biomimetic preparation and restorative principles, we can preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible, and maximize opportunities to preserve pulp vitality. This allows for the most conservative and long-lasting restorations possible.

Minimally Invasive Tooth Preparations


We utilize a combination of traditional and contemporary tooth preparation techniques to make our tooth preparations as minimally invasive as possible. These techniques can also minimize the amount and dosages of local anesthetic necessary to keep you comfortable during your procedures.

DNA, pH and Bacterial Load Testing


For high-risk patients, we can utilize advanced diagnostic testing to determine the root cause of cavities, periodontal disease, or tooth wear. By utilizing advanced diagnostic techniques we can do less dentistry and in some cases prevent problems from worsening before treatment is needed.

I’ve been coming to this office for a few years now and I just love this entire team! I recently had a tooth removed and Dr. Q went above and beyond on his day off to make sure I got taken care of with some extra antibiotics. Every time I’m there the staff is smiling and happy which makes for such an easy going experience! Madison is so easy to talk to along with Sarah, Christa, and Christine being the best hygienists around! Kyla at the front desk is just the nicest! I can’t say one bad thing about this place and highly recommend using them for all your dental services!

This is the best dental experience I have ever had. Unparalleled expertise and care. Dr Quigley found an issue missed by other dentists for years that clearly needed to be addressed. Great communication by the doctor and excellent care by the staff.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Q and his team at Bend Dental Wellness. Their dental knowledge and expertise is first class, but moreover the importance they place on really knowing and caring about the patient is second to none. I'm very grateful to be their patient.
