Did you know there’s a whole new approach to dental care that takes the health of your entire body into account? Typically referred to as holistic, biological, or toxic-free dentistry, this approach focuses on keeping your mouth healthy to improve your overall well-being. Innovative biological treatments and home care treatments have made it easier than ever to achieve and maintain excellent oral health for a lifetime.

At Julian Center for Toxic-Free Dentistry, we’re proud to provide toxic-free dental care that prioritizes your safety and long-term health. Keep reading to learn about Dr. Sambataro and our team’s unique methods, as well as how you can benefit.


When you visit our practice, Dr. Sambataro will thoroughly examine your teeth and determine the best course of treatment that takes your long-term health and wellness into account. We’ll take detailed X-rays and screen you for oral cancer and other potential problems. Dental X-rays can save your life by detecting dangerous calcified deposits in the arteries of the neck before they cause a stroke. If you have persistent tooth decay, we also review your dental hygiene, oral habits, diet, and nutrition, as these all can contribute to tooth decay. 

We have your total body wellness in mind when treating your dental issues, that’s why we are proud to provide a toxic-free environment which means no mercury fillings, root canals, or fluoride at our practice.

One of the biggest problems with traditional dental care is the routine use of silver amalgam fillings. In addition to being less durable than alternatives, these fillings slowly leak mercury into your mouth that accumulates throughout the body over time.

Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive metal in existence, making it highly poisonous to ingest in any way. Unfortunately, hundreds of millions of Americans have received amalgam fillings and are by and large unaware of the health risks.

  • Illnesses ranging from chronic fatigue to cancer
  • Neuromuscular issues
  • Cognitive and motor dysfunction
  • Memory loss 
  • Insomnia

To avoid these risks, Dr. Sambataro never uses amalgam fillings at our practice. In some cases, he can also safely remove your old fillings if they pose a threat to your ongoing health. 


Root canal therapy is one of the most commonly performed dental treatments. It’s designed to remove bacteria from inside your tooth to help you avoid an extraction. While this may sound like a good idea, root canal treatment can actually result in negative consequences that may be even worse than losing your tooth. 

After a root canal has been performed, bacteria can become trapped inside the tooth and seep into your bloodstream every time you bite down. To make matters even worse, these infected canals aren’t accessible to dental tools during checkups and may not present visible symptoms. As a result, the problem will often remain undetected.

While traditional dentists often perform invasive surgery to eliminate infections, they only focus on treating the visible symptoms rather than the underlying issues. This can lead to recurring health problems and a frustrating amount of time spent at the dentist’s office. 

As a holistic, biological dental practice, we focus on improving the health of your mouth to enhance your quality of life.

Rather than just eliminating your infection, we want to prevent it from happening again in the future. You can dramatically strengthen your immune system and add years to your life by eliminating gum disease and the more than 350 strains of bacteria it can breed.

By achieving optimal oral health, you can also reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other severe health problems that have been linked to gum disease.


As more people come to understand the risks associated with fluoride overexposure, we at Julian Center for Toxic-Free Dentistry want to provide our patients with a holistic option for their dental care needs. We don’t use fluoride in our prophy paste, perform no fluoride treatments, and don’t recommend drinking fluoridated water or using fluoride toothpaste or mouthwash.

Will gum disease go away on its own?

Without taking proper care of your teeth by following Dr. Sambataro’s treatment plan and building a consistent at-home oral hygiene routine, periodontal disease will only get worse. Periodontal (gum) disease makes you one and a half times more likely to have a fatal heart attack, twice as likely to develop coronary artery disease, and three times as likely to suffer a stroke. Periodontal disease has also been linked to respiratory disease, osteoporosis, premature and underweight births, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s (due to increased arterial inflammation and hardening).

What fluoride-free products do you offer?

As a substitute for fluoride products, we can recommend several alternatives including MI paste, tooth builder, or Revitin.
