After much thought and reflection about COVID-19, we have decided to close our clinic doors indefinitely starting July 30. Politics aside, the facts that we currently believe in are as follows:
The novel coronavirus is highly contagious. - Most individuals are asymptomatic. - Blood type is a strong risk factor. - Immune health is extremely important. - It is extremely serious for a few. - It is unknown how damaging it is for most. - It is unknown if the dental office environment is safe (even if additional safeguards are implemented) - At this point, we have adopted the "better safe than sorry" approach.
Because of this information, we have decided to halt all our services, including emergency services, until further notice.
For any updates that we may have, we will be reaching out to you through our website and social media accounts – so be sure to check in once in a while.
Our patients are currently being referred to Dr. Stacy Godes in Solana Beach.
So very sad.
I am not a patient but i am so sorry you are having to close your doors.
Sorry to hear that!!!!! Stay safe!!!
I’m a little confused by this. 😔
So grateful for having done my life changing procedures here and I hope when the time comes, there will be a chance again for natural dentistry to open its doors. Thank you for looking out for the community and yourselves. Be safe and well.
Will you sell the Breath Doctor Mouthwash online? Phil had major surgery on May 4th & is still recovering. The wound vac has been removed.
Hope all of the staff & families are fine.
This is sad news. Hope you’re all ok.
I do have a question though, what blood type are you referring to?
Holistic, conservative dentistry can be cheaper and *may* be better for some of you, but it is also more time-consuming, and could require more skills and the use of additional technologies.
This 30 yr old man from St. George, Utah had a tooth that has bothered him off and on for 2 years. Several other dentists recommended a root canal and a crown (total costs varies per dentist but it can range between $1800 to $4000).
After our xray evaluation and examination we determined that we can attempt to save the tooth with a conservative biological filling. In one visit we used ozone gas, lasers, biocompatible anesthetic, BPA-free filling materials and of course, techniques to do the best dentistry for his tooth and body.
A day later, the tooth stopped bothering him and patient was so happy to have saved the tooth (without doing a root canal and crown).
If comparing apples to apples, our fillings cost more than "their" fillings. But that's not what needs to be compared. We saved this man's tooth by doing more conservative dentistry. The correct comparison is between our filling vs their root canal and crown. The cost difference is substantial. He paid about 25% of what he would have paid at any of the other dentists.
Before automatically saying you can't afford us, remember that it is not about comparing costs per treatment, it is about getting the best dentistry that is healthier and more predictable. And usually this type of dentistry is more cost effective in the short AND long term.
But that's not the end of the story...
This patient went home and got a cleaning at his local dentist. That dentist mentioned that the filling was done well but she then, recommended a crown. 🙄 Beware of the business of dentistry.

You may be wondering how to get this product. We just checked last week and it too is on backorder.
Here, this video is a quick study proving how much “safer” this disinfectant cleans over the alcohol-based ones.
In general, it is not safe to go see the dentist during a pandemic where the virus is airborne and affects one's upper respiratory tract like corona viruses. However, if your dentist has additional equipment meant to protect all humans from such toxic aerosols, then that office may have a cleaner environment than your own household.
Here are some of the technologies and products that our clinic has invested in to ensure the utmost safety of our patients. ... See MoreSee Less
It's an airborne virus. Yikes for your idiot patients.
Do you take CIgna

Wish I was there to get my next procedure done, best care anywhere!! Great time to recover!!
Are you still doing non-emergency dentistry even when the CDC, ADA, most/if not all dental associations say only emergency procedures should be done only alleviate possibility of people going to ER for dental?
The virus IS NOT AIRBORNE!!!!!!
Is it negative ion generator ? Does it produces ozone ?
Suddenly dentists all over are concerned about aerosols.
I find it funny how current events steer someone's actions.
By that I mean, there are now dentists shaming other dentists for being open during this outbreak. While some dental offices stay open to treat essential or emergency situations (like we are currently), other dentists are closed because of the spread of "aerosols created in dental offices."
What they are referring to is the plume of "stuff" coming from the dental drills when drilling on teeth and ultrasonic scalers while cleaning.
I agree with this. The dental office IS a haven for noxious, toxic air which everyone in the office, patients and employees alike, breathe into their lungs, further toxifying them.
Because of recent news that COVID-19 is highly contagious and is found more in the air, than on surfaces, it only make sense for people to be concerned when going to the dental office.
This is why I am shocked. THIS IS NOT NEW NEWS.
Even BEFORE this global pandemic, ALL dental offices had dangerous aerosols floating in the air and entering peoples' lungs.
It is the specially-trained biological or holistic dentists that got it right from the start. You see, these dentists invest in extra equipment to clean the junk (like mercury vapor from replacing mercury amalgam fillings) coming out of the patients' mouths.
These pictures which I just took this weekend while cleaning my son's teeth show the great lengths we take to make sure our staff and patients are kept safe.
Now, since the public typically does not ask or knows about such extra precautions, they blindly enter an environment that is worse than not going at all. ... See MoreSee Less
