Rating: 5 Dermatologist Walnut Creek - Five Star Reviews By James W.
Dr. William E. Virtue DDS, NMD
I have been going to Dr. Virtue's dental office for many years after going to many other dentists in the area with no sucess. This practice is the TOTAL EXPERIENCE! From the time in walk in until you walk out you feel that not only are you in the best hands but that you are among experienced, caring friends. Not only do they care about their patients but about each other and it is apparent from the first visit. If you are looking for a dentist I strongly recommend Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville. It is worth trying. Bet you can't just go one time!

A guide to biological dentistry near you in Piedmont, NC
When it comes to choosing a dentist, the options can be overwhelming. Should you go with a family dentist, a specialist, or a biological dentist? While the answer can be different for everyone, we'd like to provide you with some more information on biological dentistry and explain how it does (and does not) differ from traditional dentistry.

What is biological dentistry?
While nearly every dentist is concerned about the health of his or her patient, traditional dentistry tends to focus more on "fixing problems." For example, a patient comes in complaining of a toothache only to discover he or she has a cavity. The cavity is filled and the patient moves on. A biological dentist is also concerned about fixing dental problems and restoring health, but takes it a little further. A biological dentist looks at the relationship with the health of the mouth and the health of the whole body. This involves using conservative techniques and biocompatible materials to ensure maximum wellness.

Is biological dentistry a specialty?
Biological dentistry is not considered a specialty. In fact, any dentist can decide to call himself or herself a biological practitioner. This is why it is extremely important to do your own research when evaluating dental professionals. You'll want to learn about their experience, training, and accreditations to determine if that dentist is truly biological or if it is a marketing ploy.

Some steps we take to ensure our patients receive biological or holistic care includes:
  • Our entire practice is mercury-free. We do not use any materials that contain mercury due to the toxicity risk.
  • We are trained and experienced in the safe removal of mercury. If the need to remove an amalgam filling arises, we are properly trained to follow the protocols necessary to remove the filling safely. We make sure both the patient and the staff members are protected from mercury exposure.
  • We choose conservative treatments when applicable. When any of our patients are in pain or in need of restorative dental work, we make every effort to take the least invasive approach in order to preserve the tooth structure.
If you've been wondering, "Is there a biological dentist near me in Piedmont, NC?" then look no further! Call us today.
