Introduction by Dr. Hart on Life Values and Dental Care for Her Patients’ Overall Health
I was growing up in the 80s in Ukraine and we didn’t have much, but we had great family values. One of those values was work-life balance. We had time for conversation and that’s how I practice my dentistry. I sit down and have the conversation with the patients. I spent lots of time with them. The other part of our value was healthy lifestyle. And healthy lifestyle meant healthy food. We would go to the market and we would pick up the vegetables, grow naturally, walk outside. We would have regular physical activity. That’s what I wanted to do through the life. I wanted to help people to have that balance, to have that health and happiness in the life. In Virginia Biological Dentistry, we recognize oral health being an indicator of overall health. And it’s not just about changing the smile or fixing the tooth. It’s about improving the quality of life, improving the longevity of life. We are also very open-minded. Patients know their body the best. We always listen. We love our patients and we love what we do.
What is Biological Dentistry?
As a biological dentist, Dr. Hart offers her patients holistic dental care through six principles that undergird her philosophy of biological dentistry:
- No-toxicity; mercury safe and mercury free dentistry
- No-metal; and safest biocompatible materials;
- Prioritizing patients unique biological profiles first;
- Taking the time to carefully investigate underlying causes and not only symptoms;
- Developing and implementing treatments that help heal patients;
- Using advanced and state-of-the-art technologies to enhance effectiveness of dental care.
When I came to United States, I decided to follow the footsteps of my grandparents and become a dentist. But I didn’t want just drill and fill. I wanted to practice biological dentistry. Biological dentistry meant for me that lifestyle I had and I have, and I wanted to share that with my patients. We have that scheme on biological dentistry. The first step is to get rid of all the infection. Infection is bad. The second principle is to get rid of all the toxic materials. In biological dentistry, we use just ceramic, PPA-free, all biocompatible materials. We’re always looking for a root cause. For example, somebody broke the tooth, we investigate what’s going on, what’s going on with the habits, what’s going on with the sleep, what’s going on possibly clenching, grinding. We always find that connection. Then I can say, “Okay, I see that red flag and maybe you need to see a medical doctor and investigate something else.” But that’s how it goes. It’s not just fixing the issue. I call biological dentistry a slow dentistry. It’s all about patient experience, not just after the procedure, but during the procedure. Because if you have stress-free experience, your body heals better. We use all possible means like sedation dentistry, like relaxing music, TV, headphones, warm pillows. They get the treatment that they don’t feel the stress of it. That’s another principle of biological dentistry.
Biological dentistry is at the heart of Dr. Hart’s and her staff’s dental care offered to the patients to ensure that everything that is used in the office is safe, natural, and completely biocompatible with the patient’s body. This specialized approach promoted by Dr. Hart helps lessen an impact on the patient’s mouth and body and maintain their overall health.
Why Choose Virginia Biological Dentistry?
In Virginia biological dentistry, we love our patients
and we love what we do
I discovered I had a few cavities that need to be filled and more importantly even, I had some bridge work that had deteriorated from the past 30 years. So when I found out about a biological dentist and some of the health benefits from that and I read on Dr. Hart’s website that she also is able to help with my snoring, I decided I definitely wanted to go and have a consultation. It was great going to a dentist that has an overall focus on the health of the body, which included ceramic implants versus metal. The process I went through to have this work done was in one word, relaxing. The people are just a pleasure to be around. Everyone in the office is a pleasure to be around. And when you lay back in the chair, they put these headphones on you, you watch television during the process. For me, this is about the best possible experience that a person could have going to a dentist. And I’m very happy with the results. They did a great job on my teeth. And as far as the snoring, I have an appliance that was made specifically for my mouth and I have seen much improvement in my sleep. I wake up more rested than I ever have before.
So I came to Dr. Hart and I’ve been using my myrobaris for one and a half years and it’s been great. Before I wore my myrobaris, my teeth were crooked and my smile was really bad. Now, my smile is really good. You can see it.
In the past, I’ve had some difficulties with some of my dental care and I was looking for a professional who was gonna be able to give me what I felt would be best for me. Dr. Hart came up number one in this area as a choice to pursue. Dr. Hart has a holistic viewpoint on dental care. The procedure that I had performed was a ceramic implant followed by a crown. From that point, I received care for the next several months, returned visits, she was checking to see how it was healing. We got to the end of the procedure, which was the ceramic crown, which was made the day of the implant, which was a new procedure for me. The results that I obtained at the end have been magnificent. I’m very pleased with the results. The work was completed on time to a very high standard.
New Patients are
How we meet our patient is actually quite a process. We invite them for a comprehensive exam. So the first part of the exam is the taking all the data, multiple pictures, x-rays, pH of saliva, blood pressure. And I studied, I studied the CBC T3 dimensional x-ray. I studied the picture. I think what would be the best plan and sometimes it’s several plans. And it’s not just the plan, but it’s also how I can help to not just achieve the health, but keep that health for a long time. If you have stress-free experience, your body heals better. So we use all possible means like sedation dentistry, like relaxing music, TV, headphones, warm pillows. They get the treatment, but they don’t feel the stress of it.
New Patients Choose Ceramics
Implants with Dr. Hart
Dr Hart: One of the services which sets us apart from other practices is the service of ceramic implant. So patients are coming with the infected tooth and they want to get rid of the infection of course. We take the tooth out with the biological protocol. The same day we can place that ceramic implant. And that ceramic implant is very biocompatible. The tissue loves it. It heals very well and it looks great. And it’s a great, great benefit for the patient health.

It was great going to a dentist that has an overall focus on the health of the body, which included ceramic implants versus metal. And so I’m really glad I went that direction. Much better for my body’s health.
Ron Cummings: In the past I’ve had some difficulties with some of my dental care and I was looking for a professional who was going to be able to give me what I felt would be best for me. Specifically was looking for ceramic implants. I don’t like to put metals in my body if at all possible. Dr. Hart came up number one in this area. The results that I obtained at the end have been magnificent. The work was completed on time to a very high standard.
Rudy Vaughan: If you’re looking for a healthy and positive experience at the dentist office, then I would highly recommend Virginia Biological Dentistry.
Newest Technology for
I actually feel very lucky to practice the way I do. Not many people in the United States or any other countries, for instance, can practice with so much new technology. We have laser dentistry which has multiple applications. CBCT, which is three-dimensional x-ray. So we can diagnose very precisely because of all those tools. We can execute the treatment plan within one day. We can have a patient who says, “I haven’t been to audiences for a long time and I want to achieve this goal.” And we can just do it for one day. And of course, the cleaning technology of the air flow which removes the biofilm. Technology is just a great tool and we are just so lucky to provide that for our patients.
