About Homeopathic Dentistry
Homeopathic dentistry, also known as holistic dentistry, takes into account a patient’s physical and emotional health as a whole and utilizes holistic or more natural approaches to preventing, diagnosing and treating oral health issues. Laser Smile Studio’s board-certified dental physician, Dr. Todd McCracken, has been practicing homeopathic dentistry for a number of years, having discovered early in his career that it allowed him to provide outstanding dental care to his patients in a less painful and more natural manner. Homeopathic dentistry options provided at Laser Smile Studio include:
- Safe amalgram removal
- Air abrasion technology
- Laser technology
- No use of dental fluoride

"Great Dr. And support staff"- R.R. / SmileReminder / Apr 09, 2021
"Few things cause me to have greater anxiety than going to the dentist. I tense up, my heart rate makes a hummingbird's look slow, and I'm often a puddle of perspiration at the end of the appointment. So I very much appreciated Dr. McCracken's empathy and his approach to pain avoidance and pain management. I had 4 cracked teeth that needed crowns, which amped up my anxiety level to new heights. Thankfully the sedation and local anesthetic worked to perfection for the temporary crown installations during the first appointment. And Dr. McCracken exhibited great patience with me in the second appointment (to install the permanent crowns), when I needed additional local anesthetic to alleviate lingering sensitivity."- B.B. / SmileReminder / Apr 07, 2021
"I love your staff and Shelly is gentle when cleaning the teeth. I like that they don't push fluoride on me as I don't believe in Fluoride."- D.K. / SmileReminder / Apr 03, 2021
At Laser Smile Studio, we do not use fluoride during dental treatments or recommend the additional use at home. In traditional dental facilities, fluoride is often used and recommended for the additional protection of the tooth enamel. Although fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in a number of commonly consumed foods and vegetables, conclusive evidence has not been found to prove that additional fluoride is beneficial. Furthermore, there is a circulation of recently collected evidence that suggests that excess amounts of fluoride could be potential dangerous to the overall health of patients.
Safe Amalgram Removal
In traditional dentistry, many treatments for oral conditions and diseases include the use of elements and chemicals that are thought to be toxic. For example, the amalgram (metal) filling is suspected to contain mercury which can be dangerous to the nervous and immune systems. After removal and disposal, amalgram fillings can become a hazard to natural wildlife and water sources. Laser Smile Studio is dedicated to the safe removal and disposal of amalgram fillings. Patients at our facility can expect the careful consideration of their overall health and well being before a treatment is recommended.
Air Abrasion Technology
Air abrasion technology is the use of highly pressurized air, and an abrasive compound (often baking soda) combined to gently but effectively blast away the tooth decay on a dental cavity. This process is thought to be gentler than the treatment of a cavity via dental drill and in most circumstances, does not require the use of local anesthetics. Furthermore, the use of highly pressurized air is a more natural and less painful experience for patients. Our facility is proud to prioritize air abrasion technology and feel that this technology allows us to better address the needs of our patients.
