Our Commitment to You

The Center for Natural Dentistry is different than other dental practices because we treat the whole person, not just their teeth and gums. Optimal overall health starts and ends within the oral cavity, and our dental services are designed to provide you with the holistic and natural dental care you need to enjoy a lifetime of smiles. Since we believe in the health of our patients first and foremost, we focus less focus more on the things that cause diseases and treat them, rather than spending time and energy on small details.

We only want the best for our patients. Dr. Marvin and the rest of us at The Center for Natural Dentistry will never offer products or services that may compromise your health. This is why we do not offer mercury amalgam fillings, root canals, and fluoride treatments. We prioritize the use of biocompatible materials, ceramic dental implants, non-metal braces, and applied kinesiology. All of this is done with your best interests at heart.

    hi i live in ny and i have fillings in teeth that need root canals. do you have any natural approach. i also have a wisdom tooth in the back that has no room to come in. would you think it’s best to remove the tooth that needs the root canal and bring the back tooth forward to close the space and use the tooth? the tooth is on the bottom and middle molar.
    thank you

    • Our entire approach to everything is natural. We can’t diagnose over the Internet, so it’s hard to say what we would do in your specific case, but we would be happy to schedule a phone or Skype consult if you’d like. Just call the office at 760-536-1199 and we will get you taken care of.
