Welcome to Dental Wellness – where we create safer, healthier, beautiful smiles.
Dental Wellness is a purpose-designed holistic dentistry practice located at The Gap in Brisbane’s inner west.
Holistic Dentistry differs from traditional dentistry by considering your overall wellbeing as a factor in dental health. It includes all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry, including an oral hygienist, but also draws from the philosophies of complementary and progressive medicine to provide a complete level of care.
Dental procedures are conducted using the most advanced techniques with safe, biocompatible materials that give excellent results while ensuring minimal impact upon the body during treatment and into the future.
Dental Wellness is unique in Brisbane as the only practice with two leading holistic Dentists. Our founding holistic dentist, Dr David Cowhig, is a leader in the field of holistic dentistry and has more than 15 years’ experience applying holistic dental principals within his practice. Dr Jon Veranese, who has recently joined the practice from Byron Bay, brings this wealth of knowledge to complement his 30 years of experience in Dentistry including expertise in Blood Chemistry, Kinesiopathy, Raw Food Nutrition and Energy Medicine Technology.
The Dental Wellness team welcomes you our practice and looks forward to working with you and your family to enjoy an optimal standard of oral health throughout your entire life.
In terms of environmental awareness Dental Wellness has invested in some of the world’s most progressive technologies available.
The issues of safe amalgam removal, safe disposal of mercury, and effective air filtration have all played a part in our practice design, and we have provided links below to some of the solutions we have implemented.
Safe amalgam removal: we rigorously follow the guidelines established by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).
Safe mercury disposal: CMA Ecocycle mercury filter stopping 99.5% amalgam and Mercury going down into the waterways (one gramme of mercury will contaminate to an unsafe level, one BILLION litres of water).
Air filtration: the Iqair Perfect 16 and iqair dental series air filters are Swiss made total building filtration systems designed especially for dental clinics. the filters not only clean the air to within 0.003 microns, but also removes all mercury vapour and other dental fumes at the time of your consultation.
Healthy Water: Dental Wellness strives to have the healthiest water available to our clients bringing in water from Mount Tamborine and offering water filtration systems for your whole house.
Surgery lighting: we use full spectrum lighting that emulates natural sunlight. Full spectrum lighting has proven beneficial in the treatment of seasonal affective disorder.
Non-toxic paints: the issue of out-gassing from volatile organic compounds (VOC) in paints has been frequently identified as a cause of environmental toxicity. Dental Wellness has been completely painted in Wattly Id– a low VOC paint.
Digital x rays imaging: the very latest system by Schick, allowing instant digital images with minimal radiation exposure.
