Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Biological/Functional Dentistry?
    A Biological Dentist seeks the safest, least toxic, and most conservative way to accomplish modern dentistry that is safe, functional, durable, and esthetic. It is interesting how the term “alternative medicine” refers to a new holistic, integrative and functional approach to health….yet it has been in existence for thousands of years, and “modern medicine” is about 100 years old. Most people find the “alternative ways” because of a personal medical condition that has not been resolved. Others are well versed in holistic ways and understand and live by it. We have known for quite a long time that there is a Mouth–Body Connection: bacteria from the mouth travels thru the bloodstream to the organs. As a biological dentist, my mantra continues to be A Healthy Mouth is a Healthy Body and a Healthy Life!
  • Do you use homeopathics?
    We use homeopathics as much as possible and have them available pre and post-treatments. We encourage healing with high-grade supplements, disinfect with laser and ozone/O2 treatments. We are also completely metal-free. Our restorations are BPA and BisGMA free. We use fluoride alternatives and educate our patients on biomimetic toothpaste and adjuncts. We make our own sanitizers with 151 proof alcohol and high-grade, non-GMO, expeller pressed, and/or cold-pressed Organic Essential Oils that we also offer to our patients. Our patients are offered a choice in their pre-treatment rinses: Essential Oil Mouthwash, Colloidal Silver Mouthwash, Ozonated Water, or a peroxide rinse for 60 seconds.
  • Who makes up Pure Dental's team?
    We work with integrative Doctors, Naturopaths, chiropractors, healers, anti-aging specialists, and the Medical community because it’s ALL CONNECTED! What happens in your mouth does not stay in your mouth. Be proactive and not reactive. What we do as a profession is not compartmentalized… compatibility matters; technique matters, isolation matters, quality materials matter, the overall health of a patient matter, ability to process toxins matters…and genetics matters. Our staff is regularly trained in this comprehensive protocol. Nothing is too excessive for the health and wellbeing of patients and staff. We go above and beyond the required standards recommended by the CDC, FDA, and ADA. This “choreography” is continuously changing in order to become better and healthier. We are a TEAM and we balance each other out, and we are all learning every day… we even learn from our own patients! We embrace change and welcome challenges…we are all just helping each other “home.”
  • Who is Dr. Josephine Perez?
    Dr. Josephine Perez has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years. A graduate of Tufts University School of Dentistry in Boston, and interned at New Orleans Coast Guard/Navy Base. Her holistic approach to dentistry encompasses each person’s unique and entire (or whole, therefore holistic) state of physical and emotional well-being. The ability to maintain our health thru preventive measures and treatments of oral disease is our priority. Dr. Perez focuses on the underlying condition, rather than only treating the symptoms. We also test for biocompatibility to find pathways to reduce inflammation and apply biocompatible and biomimetic materials, supplements, essential oils to restore and strengthen the oral cavity and ultimately, the whole body. After decades of restoring and transforming smiles, Dr. Perez has integrated total wellness into her Oral Health enhancement Practice…A Revolutionary Style of Dentistry!
