Why Annandale, VA patients choose the care of a holistic dentist

Richard D. Fischer, DDS provides a broad range of services to help you enjoy optimal wellness and a winning smile. That is accomplished with biologically friendly techniques and non-toxic materials. For example, he has been a mercury-safe and mercury-free dentist since 1982 – the practice places no “silver amalgam” mercury fillings and adheres to strict IAOMT protocols for the safest possible mercury fillings removal. We test for and carefully select the safest materials that are the most biocompatible, for each of the procedures we perform. Plus, natural ozone therapy, clinical nutritional approaches, and homeopathic support help avoid the need for harsh anti-bacterial chemicals.

Dr. Fischer’s goal is for you to enjoy life with comfortable oral function that feels good from head to toe. This includes treatment for TMJ disorders, sleep apnea, and periodontal disease. Though biological dental care is extremely advantageous to adults, it is even more valuable for children, as they get lifelong benefits of a healthier start. Biological/holistic dentistry is aesthetic, as well as functional. You can feel great about an attractive, metal-free smile with treatments such as cosmetic bonding and zirconia ceramic dental implants and crowns.

This may sound like much more attention from a dentist than you are accustomed to. However, it is affordable dental care in the long term, helping you avoid situations that lead to extensive and expensive dental or medical treatment in the future.

I've known Dr. Fischer for many years and strongly support his approach to Healthy Dentistry. I know him to be a dedicated, caring, highly trained, skilled and experienced holistic dentist. His commitment to quality, health-focused dentistry, his ongoing dedication to continuing education, and his concern for his patients health and well being, makes him ideally suited to safely remove and replace mercury amalgam fillings.

He is also unique in that he is also a naturopathic physician and fully understands the important relationship between oral and overall health. This combination makes him extraordinarily qualified to not only diagnose and treat oral problems but overall health issues as well. I believe that the way Dr. Fischer practices dentistry will become the standard for how dentistry is practiced in the future.

Dr. Fischer is a charter member of my Mercury Safe Dentist Association and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a mercury free, mercury safe, and compassionate dentist.
