We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
• We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
• We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at office number or visit our website at web address. Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
Sincerely, The Centre for Holistic and Biological Dentistry Team
We are a mercury-free and mercury-safe clinic conveniently located in Franklin, Tennessee. Our integrative approach to dentistry is an open door to understanding the connection between Silent Inflammation and chronic degenerative disease.
Because of our quality care and cutting-edge clinical excellence, patients come to us from many locations outside of Middle Tennessee. By providing the holistic dentistry services Brentwood TN patients want, we can continue to change the way others view dentistry. We keep our patients healthy and safe through our range of procedures.
We follow the IAOMT protocol for Safe Mercury Removal. The purpose of removing mercury amalgam from your teeth is to eliminate a major source of heavy metal toxins and thus inflammation from entering your body’s biosystem.
Mercury is released out of every silver amalgam filling immediately upon placement and continues to release mercury through the filling in vapor and gas form. The problem here is that mercury vapor crosses the blood-brain barrier which causes neurological destruction.
We have developed a heavy metal detoxification program and we will work closely with your medical doctor or health care professional to help you achieve mercury detoxification and optimal health.
Today, orthodontists, pediatric dentists, and general dentists are discussing and treating orthopedic problems in the mixed dentition (early facial development). Early treatment is superior treatment. This creates a broad, beautiful smile, healthy TM joints, a fully developed airway, and a full, natural jawline.
Ozone Therapy is referred to as a type of Bio-Oxidative Therapy. Oxygen therapy is not new, just forgotten, until now! ln 1857 “The Lancet”, a British Medical Journal published several articles espousing the successful use of medical oxygen. In the 1950s, German doctors began using ozone to treat cancer. Today, we can use ozone for all dental infections to eliminate the infective process and create a condition in your body called, the biological terrain, which favors health over disease.
The paradigm shift to the silent inflammatory disease model is the centerpiece of our healthcare treatment program. Inflammation is a necessary part of the healing process, but when it kicks into overdrive it causes disease instead of healing. It is a silent killer much like high blood pressure or diabetes.
Sleep Apnea is a general term for breathing problems that occur during sleep. People with sleep apnea stop breathing up to 100 times an hour throughout the night. If this period of asphyxiation lasts longer than 10 seconds, it is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a medical condition with serious long-term effects.
Sleep apnea affects approximately 20 million adults and has serious negative health effects when present with other conditions. If you suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, heart trouble or are overweight, treating your sleep apnea may improve all of these conditions while making you feel better.
