Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Greenville guests ask, “What is holistic and biological dental care?”

Holistic Dental Care Greenville

We receive many questions from prospective guests about holistic dentistry. Most want to understand what it means. One of the best ways we’ve found to define it is as the philosophy of our practice. Holistic dentistry focuses on the natural connection and interaction of different parts of the body. Holistic dentistry recognizes that there is a strong connection between the mouth and the rest of the body. This philosophy means that dental care from a holistic practitioner is focused on respecting the connection and improving overall health, not just treating isolated issues as they arise.

Holistic Dentistry

Holistic dentistry is not an alternative form of medicine. If you visit a holistic practice such as Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, you will still receive conventional dental treatment. We just take care a step further by making sure to use the safest materials and the least invasive techniques available. Holistic dentistry is not a replacement for conventional dentistry; the two actually go hand in hand.

Biological Dentistry

Biological dentistry focuses mainly on the use of safe and biocompatible materials. The belief is that anything that enters the mouth can have an impact on the body. This goes for food, drinks, medications, and as it relates to dentistry: dental tools and materials.


Biological dentists do not use any materials that contain mercury, including amalgam fillings. Instead, alternatives such as ceramic and biocompatible resin are used. These alternatives are safe, durable, and natural looking.


By visiting with a holistic dentist, you are simply aligning yourself with a philosophy of care that aims to promote overall wellness. A holistic dentist will strive to manage any issues such as tooth decay or gum disease in a conservative manner. When more advanced treatment becomes necessary, you can be assured that all materials used will be safe.


If you are in the Greenville area and you would like more information about holistic dental care, contact us today. We are always available to answer any questions.
