Chan, will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that’s specifically designed to address all of your unique orthodontic and personal needs.

Biocompatible Materials

Because we make the total health of our patients the highest of our priorities, we only use the most biocompatible and safe dental materials in our office during all dental treatments. We take great pride in providing a dental treatment that’s biocompatible, natural, holistic, and green. Not only that, but we also encourage our patients to use natural and safe dental materials for their daily oral hygiene routine.

Whole Body Health

As we’re providers of holistic dentistry, our concern for our patients goes beyond just their mouths. We believe that to achieve optimal oral wellness, a patient must achieve full body wellness also. We want to provide all our patients with whole body health and help with nutrition as well. Let us keep you on the path to a healthier life!

Laser Assisted Treatment


We provide the latest in technological advancements so that we can guarantee that you’re getting the most efficient treatment possible. One of these technological advances that we proudly utilize is the Periolase
LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) system for treating periodontal disease. Our LANAP system will help reduce inflammation and will also promote faster healing.

Dental Implants


While many patients may believe that having missing teeth is the end of a permanent beautiful smile,
dental implants are available to prove that belief wrong! Dental implants are a long-term solution to missing teeth that can even last for over 40 years. These implants match both the appearance and the function of a patient’s natural teeth. For this procedure to work, Dr. Chan will begin by surgically placing an implant in the patient’s jaw bone. He’ll then give the implant time to fuse with the jaw bone and get covered by gum tissue, which will require about a three-to-six-month healing period. After this healing has been completed, a lifelike crown will be attached to the implant, mimicking the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth.
