My Town’s Little Dentist offers pediatric holistic dentistry in Levittown, NY. Call 516-226-7337 to make an appointment.

Holistic dentistry is grounded in the belief that dental health is linked with overall physical, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing. Rather than simply treating disease, we view ourselves as healers with a deep obligation to promote overall wellness and prevent disease. We are also deeply committed to patient and parent education, and we view our relationship with you and your child as a collaborative one.

Founded in 1978, the Holistic Dental Association has set out specific guidelines that holistic dentists must follow. These include:

  • Elimination of toxic materials from dentistry
  • Proper nutrition to prevent or reverse dental disease
  • Prevention and treatment of bite problems
  • Prevention and treatment of gum disease

Please note that we follow the latest guidelines from the American Dental Association, and we only provide treatments that are supported by a solid body of scientific research. We are only shifting the aim of dentistry from treating disease to preventing it, while simultaneously helping to support overall health and wellbeing.

An important part of holistic dentistry is emotional support. We will work hard to always make your child, as well as you as a parent, feel heard, understood, and valued. If you have been searching for a pediatric dentist who takes the time to get to know your family, holistic dentistry may be right for you.  

Our office is allergen free and we do not use “silver” mercury fillings.  We use no latex, no gluten and all of our products do not contain any added BPA.  Additionally, the use of the dental laser often allows us to not inject and anesthetic.  Our digital x rays use far less radiation and we use them sparingly in accordance with existing guidelines.

We are always happy to discuss our philosophy, values, and approach to treatment with you and your child to help you decide whether holistic dentistry is the choice you want to make. Call our office at any time with questions, or make an appointment to sit down and speak with one of our dentists.
