Holistic Dental Information


Holistic Dental Information

Meetinghouse Dental Care is a biologic dental practice that takes a holistic approach to oral care, recognizing that the mouth and body are connected.  Meetinghouse Dental Care is mercury safe, metal and fluoride free, and utilizes the most conservative, biocompatible dental materials in attempts to minimize the impact of the oral environment on the rest of the body.  We place an emphasis on education so that together, we can make informed decisions about the teeth and mouth in relation to overall health.


Biologic Dentistry for Whole-Body Health

The mouth is a vital component of whole-body health.  In fact, integrative medical doctors attribute two causes of immune system deterioration directly to dentistry, especially for patients with heightened sensitivity to dental materials.  First, dental metals represent a significant factor in immune system compromise, both in terms of heavy metal toxicity and in terms of galvanization induced by mercury-amalgam fillings and metal alloys in crown/bridge work.  The other dental factor in immune system compromise is infection in jaw bone sites.

Simon Yu MD insists dentistry must clear toxic burdens on the immune system before other health practitioners can address illness effectively.  He says, “If you see many doctors for your condition with an unsuccessful diagnosis and treatment, your mouth may be the missing link to your illness.”   Dietrich Klinghardt MD and Thomas Rau MD, other prominent healthcare lecturers, emphasize the dental priority in health care syntax for the chronically ill as well.


Compassionate and experienced, Dr. Lou Trovato, Dr. Wendy Beratan and Dr. Matthew He are committed to supporting your progress toward optimal wellness and will work closely with your integrative medical doctor, naturopath, acupuncturist, nutritionist, neurologist, chiropractor or other health practitioner. 



First and foremost, we practice mercury-safe / mercury-free dentistry.  Besides implementing mercury safe protocols during any procedure involving mercury amalgam fillings, Meetinghouse Dental Care offers many other biologic dental techniques.  Our passion is you, our guest!  Our promise is personalized and comfortable care to establish optimal oral health.  You'll find us warm, gentle, friendly.  Genuinely interested.  We listen carefully to your concerns and desires and work together to form a treatment plan that will properly and safely restore your mouth.
