Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

We offer a different perspective on dentistry. We are a Bio-compatible dental office, meaning that we do not use toxic materials in our practice. We also offer whole body dentistry where we make the mouth and body connection for a safer and more natural dentistry.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

We focus primarily on replacing toxic materials with Bio-compatible materials to make for a safer and healthy mouth. Proper removal of teeth that are infected is an important focus of ours in order to make sure that no infection is left behind. Finally, we take pride in being able to make people improve smiles cosmetically to make a more confident and happy patient.

What are you proud of in your practice?

We are proud to help people recover from chronic illness, rather than contribute to their problems.

    This was the best dentist experience I've ever had. They really cared about helping making it more comfortable and Dr Chan cares about your whole well being. They also did a good job of communicating and getting me in and out.

    Very informative on holistic care of the mouth. I haven't had a cleaning done in a long time. So it was a very thorough cleaning and I feel great.

    I don’t going to the dentist for a few reasons. The main one being individuals with heavy hands. The drs touch was gentle and light. He was also very communicative on getting involved with my insurance to help cover a costly procedure. 5 stars from me!

    Very knowledgeable doctor and the staff are great. First, they don't pressure you to buy other services, I got a couple recommendations and was asked if I wish to make an appointment or buy the recommended teeth care but no pressure. My teeth needed lots of help and he did a great job.
