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 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 had a great experience here. Everyone was super nice and seemed personally interested in me as a person as well as my oral health. My teeth feel super clean, and it was overall a great experience. Definitely recommended!

I went in for my first appointment and Dr Quigley and his staff were very kind and welcoming. The entire appointment was a “getting to know you” type visit with a super thorough exam/assessment, including lots of photos for a record and visual to assure everyone is on the same page. They seem very concerned with making it a pleasurable experience and environment, wanting their patient to feel safe and at ease. I look forward to working with them.

I moved to Bend and needed a new dentist. I ended up with Dental Wellness of Bend and have to say, that I really love the practice and the whole team. My dentist, Dr. Quigley, is really great! He makes you feel so comfortable even when you are a little nervous and I definitely feel very well taken care of there. I think they do a great job. The routine exams and cleanings are very thorough and they definitely don't miss anything!

I wasn't an established patient and called with a dental emergency. They got me in quickly. I was terrified and having a full meltdown and these wonderful people were calm to my chaos and so patient with me. I was a wreck and they were so compassionate. They were not just there to fix my broken molar but to help me, as a distraught person, get though this. Thank you!
