Holistic Dentistry

Are you sick of seeing dentists who don’t consider your overall health when providing dental treatment?

Are you tired of dealing with dental care that uses toxic materials that are not compatible with your body?

If you are, South Ogden Smiles is the dental practice you’ve been looking for, since we provide the holistic dentistry Ogden, UT, deserves.

We Offer Compassionate Holistic Dentistry

Our holistic philosophy goes beyond using cutting-edge biocompatible materials. Utah and Weber County patients look forward to appointments at our South Ogden dental office because we provide individualized, comprehensive holistic care that they know they deserve.

Personalized Attention

Because our private dental practice is small, we can provide personalized and attentive treatment to each and every one of our patients. For years, Dr. Patrick Tanner has been recognized for his ability to effectively treat both a patient's smile and, in turn, their overall health.

Complete Treatment

Dr. Tanner educates his patients on how dentistry plays an essential role in the health of the whole body. Our goal is to successfully treat your body, mind, spirit, and smile, leaving you feeling rejuvenated, healthy, and beautiful.

Improved Health

Working closely with naturopaths and chiropractors allows our dental team to prescribe treatments that strengthen a patient's immune system and improve their overall health. This makes our holistic dentistry practice unique since it elevates much more than just your teeth and mouth.

How Are Holistic Dentists Different From Regular Dentists?

Holistic comes from the word "wholistic," so holistic dentists are interested in helping patients achieve whole-body health through optimal oral health. To do this, holistic dentists only use safe, biocompatible materials to help patients restore their smiles.

For example, unlike regular dentists, holistic dentists do not offer amalgam fillings. Because mercury amalgam fillings contain a toxin that can be harmful to your overall health, Dr. Tanner uses mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings and crowns that bond securely to your teeth and look completely natural. As cavities will affect most adults in their lifetime, it's important to find a solution that helps you improve your oral health without compromising your overall wellness.

It's the most amazing dentist office! The whole team is top-notch . My kids feel so comfortable here. Skye, the hygenist we see, is so thorough, gentle, and knowledgeable. I always look forward to chatting with her. Dr. Tanner is always so kind and trustworthy. If he says we need something, I know it's true, and he shows and tells me why. We drive an hour each way to come here because this office is the best. They are trustworthy, caring, and offering a holistic approach, which is why I sought them out in the first place

We Remove Mercury Fillings With a Safe and Proven Technique

Dr. Tanner at our South Ogden dental office utilizes the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART). When employing this proven removal strategy, our Ogden dentist follows an approximately 20-step protocol that includes extensive safety recommendations designed to minimize all risks and achieve the removal of toxic mercury through methods backed by rigorous scientific research. 

Hear More About Our Ozone Therapy

Made in a specialized machine that converts oxygen molecules into ozone molecules, ozone therapy can destroy bacteria, fungi, and other harmful substances that develop within the mouth. Treatment using ozone is safe and painless, and it can be used during root canal therapy, as a pre-treatment before sealants, and more.
This patient specifically looked for a holistic dentist who uses ozone therapy. Her search led her to South Ogden Smiles.

Our Dental Crowns 
Deserve a Special Note


Dental crowns are caps that are placed over the entirety of a severely traumatized tooth to restore shape, provide critical protection, and enhance aesthetics. We use biocompatible composite materials in crafting our crowns instead of the harmful metals that are unfortunately prevalent at other, non-holistic practices.

Dr. Tanner is extremely skilled at what he does. His team is fantastic as well. My whole family uses him and we love and appreciate his services! Also, as a Chiropractic Physician I was very picky to find a Dentist I could trust for providing the safe removal of silver/mercury fillings, and South Ogden Smiles checked off all the boxes for me and for referring my patients to Dr. Tanner.

We Can Detoxify Your Mouth and Body

The mercury-based materials that certain dentists may have used on you can cause significant harm not just to your mouth but to your entire body. This is because metallic mercury vapor is lipophilic, meaning it can be transferred throughout your entire body through your blood circulation. As this toxic gas circulates through your cells, it can become oxidized and cause an array of adverse reactions. 

Our South Ogden-based holistic dentistry practice understands that many patients seek us out after receiving mercury-based fillings and other restorative dentistry treatments from other dentists. If after evaluating your health we determine that you need a heightened level of detoxification, we can strategize and help you carry out a rejuvenating program.

It Is Important to Start Holistic Dentistry Early

The impact of oral health on virtually all areas of life is becoming better understood. According to an article published in The Journal of Pediatrics, children with poor oral health were more likely to suffer from a variety of academic problems regardless of age, sex, and household income. Prioritizing your child's oral health and choosing holistic dentistry from the start can truly change their life for the better.
