Dr. Madelyn Pearson, owner of Natural Smiles Dentistry, in Shoreview, is pleased to announce the addition of Holly Thompson, DDS to her practice. Thompson will join the holistic dental team on March 20, bringing her 15 years of experience to the growing practice.
Thompson returns to Minnesota after practicing holistic dentistry in Portland, Oregon. “I think that there is a tremendous need to practice dentistry more holistically,” shares Thompson. She explains that practicing in Portland was eye-opening, causing her to look beyond the traditional dental procedures that haven’t proven to be as effective long-term as we are all led to believe. “Three D scans of the mouth are revealing reinfection of root canal treated teeth that would otherwise have gone undetected.”
Thompson also relates how her patients in Portland were seeking options for a more bio-natural, holistic treatment for better overall health. “Dr. Pearson’s office is finally an avenue for me to practice dentistry I firmly believe is better for the patient and that’s invested in seeking the highest education and quality of care to provide such treatment.”
Thompson will be focusing her work on placing zirconia implants, extraction of teeth, tooth socket preservation and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) therapy. PRF is a procedure that accelerates the healing of hard and soft tissue to better prepare a site for implant placement. Blood is drawn from the patient then centrifuged to create protein and growth factors which is a natural way to stimulate growth of bone and soft tissue.
