Holistic, Biologic Dentistry atMarin Dental Wellness
At Marin Dental Wellness, we understand that dental issues impact far more than just your smile. They can affect your overall health, well-being, and comfort.
That’s why we do dentistry with your whole body health in mind, combining the most advanced dental technologies available with materials, treatments, and techniques that are compatible with natural healing.
Our goal? Help our patients of all ages attain and sustain attractive, healthy smiles that support their total health through a comprehensive range of holistic and biologic dental services.
Located in Mill Valley and serving patients from across Marin County and beyond, our office is fluoride-free, mercury-free, and mercury-safe. Biocompatibility is a priority. We stress prevention and, when dental work needs to be done, we favor the least invasive options for meeting our patients’ needs effectively.
Above all, we get to know you as a unique individual and your personal needs, values, and goals. We encourage you to take an active, engaged role in optimizing your oral health to enhance your overall health and well-being.
We are honored by each and every patient who entrusts their dental care to us.
Safe Mercury Removal & More
Marin Dental Wellness prides itself in providing the best possible holistic and biological dental care. All of our doctors are extensively trained and extremely experienced in whole person dentistry; likewise, with addressing dental situations that may be compromising your overall health.
When a patient chooses to have their “silver” mercury amalgam fillings replaced with nontoxic, biocompatible restorations, we follow the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology’s strict safety protocols to protect the health of you and our other patients, ourselves, and our planet.
We incorporate advanced procedures – such as the use of ozone and platelet rich fibrin – in oral surgeries to promote rapid natural healing and prevent the formation of cavitations (jawbone osteonecrosis). Where cavitations have formed from earlier surgeries, infected root canal teeth, or other issues, we can remove the dead, infected tissue and provide therapies to spur better healing.
Because conditions such as these can have such a big impact on overall health, we are both familiar and comfortable working with naturopathic and integrative physicians, taking a team approach so you can heal fully, mouth and body alike. If you aren’t currently working with such a health professional, we’re always happy to refer you to one.
Marin Dental Wellness is a fragrance-free office, where we strive to provide the healthiest environment possible, so even those with complex, chronic health conditions can feel comfortable.
Everyone is welcome at Marin Dental Wellness!

Our Green Practices
Because we’re only as healthy as our environment, we’ve invested in some of the world’s most progressive technologies.
- Our CMA Ecocycle mercury filter stops 99.5% of all mercury amalgam from entering our public waterways.
- We have advanced air filtration throughout our office, which cleans particulates as small as 0.003 microns, including all mercury vapor and other dental fumes.
- All of the images we take, including x-rays, are digital, and x-rays are taken only as needed and with extra precautions to keep your radiation exposure to an absolute minimum.
- We provide our clients with the healthiest water available: spring water from Cobb Mountain and alkalized water from AlkaViva (formerly IonWays).
