Dr. Mele’s mission as a biological holistic (whole body) dentist is to balance the body energetically, biochemically, functionally, nutritionally, emotionally, and structurally. The oral cavity can be a source of many imbalances on each and every one of these of these levels. Through extensive training, Dr. Mele has developed many treatment modalities to accomplish these objectives through personalized testing for biocompatible restorative materials which are selected based on blood serum analysis and acupressure techniques.
Nutritional assessments are performed to determine your specific individual unique requirements and to determine what foods and toxins you need to remove from your diet.
Balanced meridians (energy flows) can be interrupted by many issues in the oral cavity. Systemic issues in other organs can also prevent conditions in the mouth from healing. Dr. Mele has extensive training in locating and eliminating roadblocks to and from the mouth.
Many adults and children experience anxiety and apprehension when going to the dental office. In addition to a warm and caring staff that caters to the patients every need, the use of acupressure, color therapy, natural remedies, and nitrous oxide can greatly reduce and even eliminate anxiety and apprehension.
Children exams include the evaluation of the jaw size in relationship to tooth size and the relationship between one jaw to the other jaw (Do the jaws fit together properly?) When discrepancies occur interceptive orthodontics is implemented at an early age (6 years to 11 years) when the jaw can be stimulated to grow to its full potential.
