Understanding Biological Dentistry
Biological dentistry is a branch of dentistry focused on dental materials, techniques, and procedures and their effects on the whole body. By uniting the best of western dentistry and medicine’s clinical practices and technologies with alternative modalities, biological dentistry allows dentists to examine overall health within a more comprehensive framework.
No two patients are the same — they do not experience precisely the same conditions; they do not have precisely the same needs, nor do they benefit from precisely the same treatment. Biological dentistry considers every aspect of a patient’s health in their treatment.
The Mission of Biological Dentistry
We focus on the whole you, and create a treatment plan that focuses not only on the root issue, but what caused it.
We may ask you questions about your lifestyle, but will also treat you with the utmost respect to find the right solution.
We will fully explain our reasoning behind the diagnosis and treatment for any issues we discover.
Your treatment - your choice. We will give you the necessary info to help you make the treatment decision that is best for you.
What Makes Us Different
All biological dentists must complete dental school and have either a DDS or DMD degree. Biological dentists also offer many traditional dental services, such as cleanings, cavity fillings, periodontal treatment, and more. The primary difference between biological dentists and traditional dentists lies in their approach.
While traditional dentists tend to treat isolated dental conditions, biological dentists search for the condition’s root cause. To do so, they may ask the patient about their alcohol consumption, diet, hormone imbalances, sleep patterns, and workout regimen. All these factors can affect healing and prevention, whether positively or negatively.

Words From Our Patients
I felt valued and respected. Everyone involved was kind and considerate. I have a lot of bad experiences with dentists and I needed an emergency root canal so I was terrified. Everything was done in a timely fashion and the doctor was very thorough. This is the first dental experience I have had where I felt nothing the entire time and really felt taken care of. I will definitely be going to them as a regular as I can. Thank you to everyone there.
What an awesome experience. My crown broke late at night, I called their office at 8:30 PM on a Thursday night and someone called me right back and got me in for 10:00 AM the next day. The staff and doctors are amazing. I'm like many that hate going to the dentist and they made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. I will be recommending them to all my family and friends. Thank you to the Staff and Doctors at Montclair Dental Spa you are the best.
The amazing job they do as well as the care that they give you makes you feel right at home. The doctors, nurses and receptionists treat you and your teeth with the utmost importance. They listen to what you say, and speak to you about all of your available options. I would recommend Montclair Dental Spa to anyone that is looking for the best work done at an affordable price. Thank you Montclair Dental Spa for letting me smile proudly once again.
Frequently Asked Questions
All biomaterials used in a medical device are subject to specific biological requirements. Biocompatibility refers to the relationship between the patient and the device. If a patient is biologically incompatible with a device, their body may reject it, and various complications may ensue. Biological dentists perform individualized biocompatibility testing to prevent any undesirable and potentially dangerous results.
Unlike traditional dentists, biological dentists will typically require a comprehensive overview of your medical and dental history. This will give us the insight to detect any possible concerns. It often also helps patients see the relationship between their oral health and their total health. From there, we can work together to start building a treatment plan and establish realistic health goals.
The answer depends on your specific needs, as some patients require more treatment than others. However, every patient should receive at least two professional cleanings per year to reduce their risk of cavities and gum disease. When you come into our office for a cleaning, you can rest assured knowing that we will remove plaque without harmful chemicals. Instead, we will use natural solutions whenever possible to remove bacteria and plaque from the mouth. This has the added benefit of eliminating any stress that harmful chemicals place on the body.
Many complete health dentists have realized that oral health is connected to systemic health. This is known as the oral-systemic link. Biological dentists take this one step further with what is known as the mouth-mind-body connection. This refers to the belief that all parts of the body are intrinsically connected. Keeping a poor diet will inevitably affect oral health, as will using materials that are biologically incompatible to your biochemistry. Mindset also often affects the decisions that influence one’s health. Biological dentistry aims to keep each aspect of a patient’s health in optimal condition.
