Our Holistic Philosphy

Holistic dentistry supports your choice to live a healthier, more natural, more beautiful and less toxic life. We bridge the gap between conventional dentistry and natural healing modalities

Anti-Aging

Your smile affects how you perceive yourself as well as how others perceive you and should complement and even enhance your appearance and self-confidence. Studies have shown that a person’s age is overestimated by as much as 13 years as a result of the effects of aging on their teeth.

Smiles are affected by many negative changes that occur with age. Our teeth darken, stain, get worn down, start to look crooked, and gum lines recede. As teeth wear down, the lips lose support, the chin gets closer to the nose, and wrinkles and creases around the mouth and face are more apparent.

Today there are many options in the area of anti-aging dentistry to counter the effects of aging and give you a more youthful, healthy appearance.

Dr. DeFelice offers a variety of treatments that include:
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Porcelain veneers and crowns
  • Gum sculpting
  • Dental implants
  • The use of Botox, Juvederm or other facial fillers
When these treatments are part of a coordinated oral health plan, the results can transform your smile and keep your appearance more youthful and vibrant.

Sedation

Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedation (or sleep medicines) during dental treatment. Sedation is most commonly used during extensive procedures, for patients with dental fears or for patients who find it difficult to sit still. Many people find dental care so much more comfortable when sedated. If you have dental fears, low pain tolerance, need major dental treatment, have physical handicaps or a strong gag reflex, you may benefit from sedation. Dental sedation is a safe and effective way to make you comfortable and relaxed during your dental visit. We offer mild sedation and adult conscious sedation (dentistry while you sleep)in our office. Please ask Dr. Louise for more information. We can discuss ways in which we can make treatment more comfortable for you, your family member or friend.

Invisible Braces

If you have teeth that aren’t as straight as you want them to be, consider adult orthodontics with invisible braces or “aligners.” It is a simple solution that doesn’t take very long. Very light forces are used and people can’t tell you are wearing them. It can take as little as a few months to make a significant change in your smile. For some, insurance may even provide a benefi

Obstructive Sleep Apnea & Snoring

OSA, or Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a potentially serious disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and start during sleep. OSA is lifelong medical conditions that affects about 30 million people and is undiagnosed in 90% of patients. It can affect your sleep, health and quality of life. OSA is linked to hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, work and related accidents and strokes. It can severely affect relationships and strain bed partners and family members.


Loud and chronic snoring is not normal. This is caused by changes to the airway while you sleep. During sleep, muscles relax, including those that control the tongue and throat. Your soft tissue at the back of the throat can vibrate (snoring) or completely collapse (OSA). A family member or bed partner will often notice these problems before you do. We can help.


We have a variety of treatment methods to successfully treat OSA and snoring. Our intra-oral dental devices avoid the use of the bulky and loud CPAP machine and can successfully treat you or your loved ones. A restful night’s sleep is within your reach! Our devices are medical/dental grade, are custom fabricated, are BPA free, and comfortable. Ask how we can help you today!
