Hi! I’m Dr. Bernice Teplitsky and my practice, Wrigleyville Dental, is located in the Lakeview/Wrigleyville neighborhood of Chicago. You should know that I’m a little different than most dentists. I am obsessed with all things health related.
I believe that if you really want to take care of your health, you eat healthy, exercise regularly, get enough sleep, and go see a holistic or biological dentist.
Most doctors will tell you that oral health is incredibly important to your overall health. There are tons and tons of studies out there that show a relationship between dental problems and heart disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s, autism, and much more. I believe that preventative care should come first, before chronic issues develop. By taking care of your teeth and gums through nutritional counseling, biocompatibility testing, safe mercury amalgam removal, and gum therapy, we can avoid both expensive future dental procedures and the need to tackle some other scary illnesses down the road.
I know that there are a lot of other dentists out there. Some are great, and some have a few horror stories to their name. The way that I make sure that I’m one of the great ones is by living by the following rules.
- Focus on preventative care to tackle the problem; rather just it’s symptoms.
- Try to solve every problem with the least invasive means possible.
- Never use any unnecessary treatments
- Never use any harmful materials
- Do everything possible to make you as comfortable as you can be in the office
- Always explain all your viable options before going ahead with treatment
- Do everything possible to save a tooth
- Stay on top of treatments until you are completely pain free.
- Work with you and your insurance company to provide affordable care
