Holistic dentistry is a comprehensive philosophy of care that considers oral health as an integrated part of the body. Rather than just treating your symptoms, we seek the root cause of the problem. Our holistic model integrates traditional and natural alternative medicine including mercury filling removal to promote total
Snoring may seem like a trivial problem, but it’s actually the most common symptom of obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea, left untreated, can lead to serious health complications and can even be life threatening. A simple oral appliance can help keep your airway open, allowing you to breathe comfortably throughout the night.Learn More

At DeFelice Dentistry, our mission goes far beyond just cleaning and fixing teeth. Dr. Louise DeFelice and our team are committed to the total health and wellness of our patients. Above all else, we want you to feel comfortable and confident in our care.
We make getting to know you our top priority because we believe the foundation of any relationship is trust. We want to know about your health history, your diet and lifestyle, your fears and concerns, and your goals for the future. We also want to know how your dog is doing and if you had fun on vacation, but we promise not to ask you while we’re working in your mouth!
When we only see you in our office twice a year for checkups and cleanings, the other 363 days it’s up to you to keep your mouth clean and healthy at home. That’s why our holistic philosophy of care includes a full line of natural products for all your at-home oral health and wellness needs. We are proud to be a supplier of Dental Herb Company® products, as well as Standard Process® and MediHerb® nutritional supplements.
Whether you need help with a nutritional deficiency, balancing your pH, treating dry mouth, or fighting bacteria, we have a natural solution to get your mouth healthy. We also stock Sonicare® toothbrushes, and Zoom!® whitening pens to keep your smile healthy and beautiful between visits to your Spokane dentist at DeFelice Dentistry. We are more than happy to recommend products based on your individual needs.
At DeFelice Dentistry, we are dedicated to continuing education to stay current with the latest advancements in dentistry. This includes learning new treatment methods and investing in new technology to provide a safer, gentler, more comfortable experience for our patients with the best possible outcomes.
One of our favorite pieces of technology is our E4D milling machine that allows us to digitally design, fabricate, and place crowns and other restorations in a single visit! Traditionally, restorations require multiple visits and temporaries, but same day dental technology streamlines the process so you can make fewer trips and have a more comfortable, convenient experience while you’re here.
As your trusted oral health authorities, we get a lot of questions from our patients. In our mission for health, one of our primary goals is patient education because oral health requires your participation. We want our patients to be as knowledgeable and informed as possible because knowledge is power! The more you know the more capable you will be of keeping your smile and your whole body healthy for life. Dr. Louise has already answered some of our most frequently asked questions on our YouTube channel. Follow along and keep them coming!
A native of Spokane, I attended Gonzaga University for undergraduate work and received my DDS from The University of Washington School of Dentistry in Seattle. I joined my father’s practice in 2000 after practicing on the west side of Washington State.
I love to provide optimal dentistry, to promote healthy mouths, and to encourage prevention of dental problems. I deeply value the relationships I form with my patients and have a family-oriented practice with dental services for all ages. I welcome modern technology in dentistry and strive to provide the best customer service for our patients’ comfort, safety, and well-being.
"I care about the people who entrust their smiles to me. In addition to my clinical expertise, you will always have my personal attention, compassion, and gentle touch."
