What to Expect

Well Rooted Dentistry is a holistic practice dedicated to your oral and overall wellbeing. What is a holistic dentist? Simply stated, a holistic dentist has the same education as a traditional dentist. However, rather than treating the symptoms of their patients’ problems, they identify and treat the source. As holistic dentists, we understand the mouth-body connection. Every treatment we offer is intended to support the oral microbiome and promote optimal oral health.

The Four Pillars of Dentistry

Our holistic dentists in Providence, RI are committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care. We adhere to these four pillars of dentistry:

  • Biological Dental Assessment
  • Comprehensive Care and Treatment Plan
  • Collaborative Support
  • Continuity of Care

We’ll explore each of these elements in more detail below.

Biological Dental Assessment

At our holistic practice, a biological dental assessment is recommended for all new patients. During this comprehensive evaluation, you will meet with Dr. Zannis and Amber, our dental manager, to discuss your personal oral health goals and medical history. Next, we will perform a visual assessment of your teeth and gums. X-rays will also be taken so that your dentist can visualize the underlying oral structures and landmarks. Once this step is complete, Dr. Zannis reviews all gathered information in detail and schedules a second appointment in approximately two weeks to discuss potential treatments.

Comprehensive Care and Treatment Plan

All treatment plans designed at our practice reflect holistic ideologies. For example, we understand the connectedness between oral health and whole-body health. We consider the way that dental problems affect your entire wellbeing, and focus on treating the root cause, not just the symptoms. We also perform individualized materials testing to ensure that patients avoid any allergic reactions.

At Well Rooted Dentistry, we believe that patients are an integral aspect of the treatment planning process. As a result, we strive to provide open and transparent communication from day one.

Collaborative Support

Once we have developed a personalized plan for you, our holistic dentists will complete treatment in a streamlined, conservative fashion. This helps ensure that whole-body health is supported throughout and that we retain as much natural tooth structure as possible.

Additionally, our dentists work in collaboration with other holistic providers at The BioMed Center New England, including naturopaths, medical doctors, and nurse practitioners. By doing so, we can ensure that our patients receive the highest level of comprehensive care available.

Continuity of Care

When patients come to us with dental issues, the first goal is to reestablish proper oral health and function. Once we’ve achieved that, it’s important to maintain an excellent level of maintenance and prevention.

Patients should attend regular oral health visits at intervals set by their dentist. While many can maintain healthy teeth and gums with biannual exams and cleanings, some individuals may require more frequent appointments, such as those predisposed to gum disease or dental caries. During these visits, our team can offer up tips and tricks for properly maintaining oral health between cleanings.
