Holistic, Organic, or Biological Dentistry (whichever term you prefer to describe it) involves taking a different approach to the practice of dentistry. It means looking at a patient as a whole person and addressing any issues from that perspective. Many of the things that happen in the mouth affect the whole body and many things happening to the body have an impact on the mouth. A holistic approach means addressing all of these issues in the process of seeking optimal health.

We are committed to creating a healthy environment for all of our patients. We are happy to discuss any or all of these topics with you and are committed to giving you all the information you need to make an informed healthcare choice. Dr Whicker is a member of the Holistic Dental Association and the International Association of Mercury ToxicologyWe have all the equipment, materials, and protocols needed to safely remove mercury fillings.

What Our Amazing Patients Say

Benny Pezzano
Benny Pezzano

This is by far the most amazing and caring dentist experience you will ever have. I was seeking an alternative dentist because I, like most of us, was seeking a more holistic dentistry experience. Dr. Whicker and the team is absolutely on point. Kind, compassionate, professional and practical.

They are the best at informed consent- he will tell you exactly what he is doing and why he is doing it at any moment. I leave the office feeing taken care of and cared for instead of abused and taken advantage of. He even reaches out later in the day to check up on you makes sure everything is alright.

I will never go to another dentist. I could not recommend Dr. Whicker enough!! Thank you Wellness Centered!!

I visited Dr. Whicker for a tooth extraction and bone graft for a future implant placement. I am a Denturist (I fabricate and fit dentures). I see patients on a daily basis with fresh extractions and often times sutures. I was so impressed with Dr. Whicker! He was kind and courteous and very professional. He made sure that I was comfortable with each step of the procedure and talked to me and explained what he was doing throughout the process. The extraction site looks amazing and his sutures are impeccable. The staff were very friendly and the office is pristine. I will definitely be referring not only my friends and family, but my own patients to Dr. Whicker for dental treatments. I am so pleased!
