About

Dr. Whitfield's dental career started in periodontal research with the Sonicare Company. He helped discover & patent several natural plant extracts used as antimicrobial agents in toothpaste and mouthwash. He also did research on tooth whitening agents and statistical studies involving the efficacy of the Sonicare toothbrush on gum disease. During his years at Sonicare, Dr. Whitfield helped manage several large-scale clinical trials following FDA guidelines. He is one of only a handful of general dentists in the world who has this unique understanding of the possibilities for natural plant extracts and real world clinical efficacy. He is able to quickly identify from a product's supporting information whether it was ever tested properly and if you should use it for your family. Dr. Whitfield has been published in several research journals

    The experience at Dr. Whitfield’s office was very good. The primary dentist who took care of me was throughout, explained everything in details and mapped out a great treatment plan for my situation. They don’t move forward without Dr’s Whitfield come by and approve the diagnosis. I could feel that I’m in good hands.
