What is Holistic dentistry?

Holistic dentistry may be a bit different from what you have experienced in the past. It is a relatively new approach to dental care that considers both the teeth and mouth, as well as the person as a whole.

The holistic approach is becoming more popular among dentists since more individuals are searching for methods to improve their general health. The first step of holistic dentistry is to figure out what’s causing one’s dental issues, whether it be physical, emotional, or dietary. Holistic dental care considers all of a patient’s requirements and concerns while providing therapy treatment. At Wright Parkway Dental Center, we pride ourselves on our holistic approach to dentistry and strive to not only help you have a healthy mouth, but a healthy body.

How does holistic dental care differ from traditional dental care?

The difference between holistic and traditional dental care is that holistic dentists do not just focus on treating cavities or other dental problems but take into account all aspects of a person’s life that can affect their oral health. Holistic dentists also look at how your oral health could be affecting other areas of your body.

“We often see patients who are frustrated, they have been repeatedly brushed off or talked down to when bringing up concerns like mercury fillings, or the use of fluoride and how that may be creating or enhancing health issues patients are having. “

Holistic dental care looks at materials that are in your mouth and how that may be related to concerns that you have. At Wright Parkway Dental Center, we will never brush you off or make you doubt what you are experiencing. With our whole-body approach, we are certain to get to the root of your problem.

Reasons to see a holistic dentist

A holistic dentist can help you with any dental needs. They’re trained and licensed dentists, so they provide the same level of care as traditional providers, while incorporating alternative techniques or utilizing natural remedies to promote healing.

What do holistic dentists use for fillings? 

A holistic dentist uses non-metallic fillings, like white fillings made from composite material. Not only is it safer, but also less visible in the mouth.

A holistic practice is known for their advanced testing and providing high quality dental care. By using biocompatible  materials, they ensure that the patient will no longer suffer from allergies or reactions to the conventional treatment methods. Because of this holistic dentists don’t have one favorite composite material they use, but instead test each possible filling depending on the patient’s history and health.

Amazing Service

I’ve been going here for years but recently brought in our kiddos. Our oldest needed a filling and was panicked about getting a shot. Dr. Welsh distracted him and she administered the numbing shots so well that he didn’t even know she gave him the shots!! Truly amazing service!



Wouldn’t trust my orthodontics and cleanings with anyone else. Always thorough, in and out every time!


Great Team

A Great Team!! Dr. Welch herself is very professional, knowledgeable, takes the time to explain the background to a procedure…and is very friendly. Her staff are the same and the teamwork they show when they work together is at the highest level. Highly recommended.



Dr. Welch and her staff are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. I felt they cared about the patient more than money. They take the time to explain and care above and beyond what is expected.


Above & Beyond

I always feel like I am in good hands here. I think you go above and beyond what most dentist offices do for
their clients. The cleaning was very thorough Thank you very much!- D.L.


Not everyone can say going to the dentist is enjoyable, but your professional and enjoyable staff makes it possible. -K.C.

Forward Thinking

I was so relieved you were able to see me. Thank you! New office procedure only adds to the totally smooth flow of your ever gracious office. So forward thinking!


Patient Feedback

My husband, Mack, and I are thrilled to find Dr. Welch since she is truly a biological dentist. We truly wish we’d found her in this area years ago, as I’ve had to fly out to dentists that are beyond just not using mercury. We’re ages 72 & 75, so Dr. Welch will be so helpful with positive aging helped with dentistry…and no concerns about harmful dentisty to our elderly bodies.


Patient Experience

I’m happy with my last visit and cannot think of anything I’d change. Thank you for the chance to voice my
opinion! – J.F.

Patient Feedback

Always in good hands!! Thank you for taking good care of me all these years! – K.H.
