If you are searching for a new dental practice, you will notice listings for general, family, cosmetic, pediatric, and biological dentists. In these categories of dentistry, the overriding philosophy is traditional, even though services within the practices and patients targeted may differ. Dr. Olivia Hart of Glen Allen, VA has a different approach. She works hard to keep her patient’s mouths healthy, knowing that good oral care promotes healthy bodies.
The biggest difference between biological and traditional dentistry is the approach to dental issues. A conventional dentist addresses the problem. For example, when a patient has a cavity, the dentist fills it. Dr. Hart not only fixes the issue, she tries to uncover what is causing the problem, and what implications the situation or treatment may have on the body.
Dr. Hart only uses safe materials in dental fillings. If cavities recur she:
Biological dentistry treats the entire patient, with safe materials such as those that are free of mercury and other harmful metals. Biological dentistry also utilizes procedures and technologies that can help patients have a better and safer dental experience. Dr. Hart is trained in removing metal fillings for patients worried about toxicity risk from mercury.
At Virginia Biological Dentistry, Dr. Hart helps her patients find their unique best path to treatment. There is no one-size-fits-all plan for wellness or dental care. Dr. Hart treats you with the respect and courtesy you deserve.
