"I first came to Dr. Medlock in the 90's after reading about a possible connection between MS and mercury dental fillings (of which I had many). I kept coming back (traveling over an hour after a move) because of the world-class care I received each and every time I came ; no "bs" just honest health care with an emphasis on health AND care, both. I recently strayed due to a distance issue related to work I'd had – boy was I sorry. I had to have work re-done and suffered quite a bit through the poor level of care. I was shifted through the conventional system (I saved nothing and paid dearly). Dr. Medlock and all of the staff truly care about their patients and make the time to be thoroughly educated in "alternatives" which significantly impact health. Thank you All!" -- Peggy

Although mainstream dentistry seeks to improve oral health, the focus of our holistic dentistry practice is each patient's overall health. We strive to see past the obvious symptoms and benefit a patient's overall health by making the connection between the body and the mouth.

We are tied to our mouths quite literally. However, many people do not realize just how great an impact the state of oral health has on the body. At the core of our holistic dentistry practice is this very understanding. When consulting with a patient, Drs.James Medlock and Elizabeth Keith assesses the present issue and then looks beyond the symptoms to determine the underlying cause. In treating the body, the mouth will benefit, and vice versa.

Perhaps one of the things that holistic dentistry is best known for is its avoidance of the use of metal in restorative procedures. While the American Dental Association stands behind the use of amalgam fillings, which are the single greatest source of mercury exposure, your holistic dentist makes the decision not to use this material based on studies which have shown it to be detrimental to health. Some of these findings include:
  • Mercury, which comprises 50% of the weight of a filling, is a known neurotoxin. While the FDA may consider this safe for adults and children over the age of six, it has been shown that neurotoxins are dangerous to both the mature and the developing nervous tissue. There is no safe level of mercury, one of the most poisonous non-radioactive substances on Earth.
  • Some of the conditions that may come from exposure include memory impairment and dementia - also known as Alzheimer's disease.
  • Mercury from fillings is easily transported to other parts of the body, mainly through the lymph, blood, and nerves. Once in other parts of the body, those organs may begin to develop unhealthy ailments. Over 100 symptoms and syndromes have been attributed to chronic mercury exposure, such as tremors, heart disease, chronic fatigue, and depression, to name a few.
  • The level of mercury in the brain is directly related to the number of mercury fillings in the mouth.
In our holistic practice, we have your best interest in mind.

Dr. James Medlock Reviewed by Cathy

Every procedure I've had by these wonderful dentists has been superb! From cleanings, crowns, removal of amalgam fillings, I have no worries or feelings of anxiety, as I know my confidence high as a patient. I have been a patient for 9 years. The most professional and friendly staff in the world! No service improvements needed! I know that many people "fear" going to a dentist. Dr. Medlock, Dr. Keith, and staff make EVERY PATIENT feel comfortable and at ease, as they explain procedures well and are the most gentle and professional dentists in the world! A very clean office with friendly warm "welcome" smiles is an extra bonus! I would highly recommend everyone to this office of Dental Professionals!
