Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

Yadkinville residents learn the definition of holistic dentistry

Located in Yadkinville, NC, Dr. William Virtue and the compassionate staff at Virtue Dental Care have taken a natural, patient-focused approach to dentistry. With knowledge that the mouth is the portal to the body, patients and dentists alike are considering more holistic approaches to medical practices. Concerned about the metals and chemicals found in some treatments, patients are seeking dentists who utilize safe, natural methods to treat diseases of the mouth and body. Holistic dentistry has become the answer.

Holistic dentistry by definition

Holistic dentistry uses an alternative approach, focusing on the use of non-toxic materials, and understanding the effects of dental toxins and infections on the patient’s overall health. It may also be known as biological or biocompatible dentistry. The whole patient is treated rather than just the oral cavity.

Just as every doctor is different, each dentist has his or her own approach to holistic dentistry and how it can be applied. Some philosophies encompassed by the term holistic dentistry include the following:

  • Using composite fillings or alternatives to silver-colored amalgam fillings.
  • Utilizing the proper mercury removal protocols.
  • Considering the negative impact of heavy metals and toxic materials.
  • Using an integrated or multidisciplinary approach to healthcare.
  • Educating patients on healthy lifestyle practices.

Our patients have the added benefit of seeing a dentist who is SMART certified in the safe removal of amalgam fillings. Dr. Virtue was also the past president and secretary of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). He is dedicated to following dental practices that protect his patients’ health and safety.

Whether you need general, cosmetic, or reconstructive dental treatment, our holistic approach gives you a beautiful and healthy smile.
