At DeFelice Dentistry, our philosophy is one of wholeness. As a holistic dentist, our mission is to educate our patients about the mouth-body connection, or the oral-systemic link, in hopes of helping them achieve overall health and wellness. We don’t just treat your symptoms. We look deeper into what is causing your oral health problems in hopes of preventing the progression of disease and decay down the road. We want our patients to have healthy, natural smiles for a lifetime. We pay close attention to the materials we use to ensure they are the most biocompatible with your unique body chemistry. At DeFelice Dentistry, you are more than just a patient to us, you are a friend and valuable member of our dental family, and we want to help you live a happier, healthier life with a beautiful, natural smile.
“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 gentleness.”
