Holistic Dentist in Atlanta Relocates Office from Buckhead to Roswell, Georgia
Dazzling Smiles, a holistic dental practice offering services to Atlanta residents, has recently relocated from Buckhead to Roswell, Georgia. They encourage new or returning patients to schedule an appointment online on their site. The dental office is headed by Dr. Michaela McKenzie, who is a skilled and experienced cosmetic dentist committed to providing exceptional care to patients with the use of quality, biologically friendly materials. Patients from all over the state of Georgia, including Tennessee and Alabama have been traveling to Dazzling Smiles to receive what they consider to be outstanding cosmetic and restorative care.
Dazzling Smiles offers various services, such as: biological, holistic, and mercury-safe dentistry; general dentistry; healthy gums; cosmetic dentistry; teeth whitening; crowns and bridges; implants; Invisalign; full mouth teeth in a day; facial rejuvenation; and single visit crowns.
The old-school mindset was to approach dentistry like an engineering problem, where dentists were concerned about tooth mechanics with little to no consideration about the impact of a dental treatment and the materials used on the overall health of the patient. Fortunately, progressive dental professionals like Dr. McKenzie are very much aware of the impact of anything that goes in the mouth of the patient or is done to the mouth. As a holistic dentist, Dr. McKenzie will also used materials, technology, and methods that she believes will be really beneficial for the patient in all aspects and not harm the patient in any way.
For instance, mercury amalgam is one of the most common and also most controversial dental materials currently in use. This material is not used at Dazzling Smiles but they do encounter many patients who already have amalgam fillings. They will remove and replace these amalgam fillings if they are failing. Furthermore, if the patient wants to have the amalgam fillings replaced with cosmetic, biocompatible resin or porcelain, they will also remove the amalgam filling. When removing the amalgam filling they will use a very specific protocol developed by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) to safely remove the mercury fillings.
Dr. McKenzie is also aware of the danger posed by the high levels of fluoride that people are exposed to, not just from toothpaste or mouth rise, but also from supplements and treated public water sources. Studies indicate that accumulated fluoride may cause damage to soft tissues, teeth, and bones. It has been observed that dental fluorosis, which occurs in children who have too much exposure to fluoride, is four times more common today compared to the early 1940s before the introduction of fluoridated water. At Dazzling Smiles, they only use non-fluoride products and they advise patients to use non-fluoride products at home.
Meanwhile, whether it is general dentistry or cosmetic dentistry, Dr. McKenzie practices biological dentistry. She recommends and follows the guidelines established the IAOMT, of which she is a member. The dental office is equipped with advanced technology, such as a four-stage air filtration system for removing particulate matter, odors, moisture, and vapor from the breathing area of staff and patients. This air filtration system can eliminate particles as small as 0.3 microns with 99 percent effectiveness, and it helps to get rid of ozone, mercury vapor, laser smoke, air abrasion powder, airborne viruses, and more.
Founded in 2013, Dazzling Smiles is the dental practice of Dr. McKenzie, who applies holistic dentistry. She chooses materials, techniques, and specific care based on the patient’s whole-body health. Their goal is to offer effective dental treatments in a safe manner. Dr. McKenzie was born in London and she had lived and studied in Germany through a scholarship earned for academic excellence. She had earned degrees in biochemistry and German from the University of Arizona, and she had completed a number of research projects at the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, before attending Creighton University School of Dentistry, where she obtained her DDS degree.
