What is holistic/biologic dentistry?
Holistic/biologic dentistry is an approach to dental care that keeps in mind the strong connection between oral and overall health.

By always keeping this link in mind, Dr. Hamel is able to better protect our patients overall health in addition to taking care of their smiles.
Do you see children?

Is holistic/biologic dentistry safe for children?
Yes. Whenever we start treating a new patient, no matter their age, we do what is called biocompatible testing to see which dental materials are okay to use and which ones could be potentially harmful. This enables us to avoid many pitfalls children will experience with other dentists, because by taking a bit of extra time, we’re able to discover what works best for a child before we actually apply any treatments, keeping everyone happier and healthier in the process.
