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!

Why Piedmont, NC area patients should choose holistic dentistry
People make conscious choices about their health every day. They may opt for the salad instead of the burger, or perhaps they decide to go for a brisk walk instead of sitting on the couch. These choices help patients in many ways by improving physical fitness, losing weight, and lowering the risk for medical conditions. The same types of decisions can be made in regards to your oral health. Holistic dentistry utilizes these same principles and focuses on making necessary changes and providing care to prevent future problems. At Virtue Dental Care, we help our patients continue on their path of overall wellness to enjoy improved oral health.

Holistic dentistry, also commonly referred to as biological dentistry, is based upon the connection between the mouth, body, and mind. Holistic dentistry is not just about evaluating teeth and treating problems, but instead focuses on how wellness can continually be improved. A holistic dentist like Dr. Virtue will evaluate the patient as a whole, looking for underlying causes to dental issues and finding solutions to treat them and prevent them from occurring again in the future.

Many patients believe that holistic dentistry is new, simply because they haven't heard of it. The truth is that holistic dentistry is based on thousands of years of history. Some of the key fundamentals of holistic dentistry include:
  • Maintaining a nutritious and balanced diet. Eating well is important for the body and the mouth. Good eating habits can improve oral health and reduce the risk of disease.
  • The use of safe, biocompatible materials. This means avoiding the use of mercury and any other materials that are known toxins.
  • Addressing issues in the mouth that can lead to problems elsewhere in the body. TMJ and certain bite problems can cause patients to experience symptoms and imbalance in other areas of the body. By treating these conditions, overall health can be improved.
Patients in the Piedmont, NC area come to Virtue Dental for compassionate dental care that aims to improve oral health and total wellness. If you are ready to reap the benefits that holistic dentistry provides, call today and schedule your appointment to visit with our staff.
