Our Approach to Holistic Dentistry in Fargo
At Lundstrom Family Dentistry we strongly believe that your oral health has a direct connection to the overall health of your body. It is very important that you understand the importance of your oral health and its connection to your overall health. Because we strongly believe in this connection we find it is extremely important to approach dentistry in a comprehensive manner. A comprehensive approach to dentistry means looking at the mouth as a whole versus tooth by tooth, offering a variety of materials and non metal options, tailored treatment planning based on your individual needs, and much more.

BIOCOMP Labs Material Reactivity Testing
"BioComp's objective is to measure immune system response on an individual basis using our sophisticated blood serum procedure. The end result is the Biocompatibility test - a comprehensive report which simply states whether the dental materials are highly reactive, moderately reactive, or least reactive. The information allows the individual to learn about and avoid dental toxicity by using the least amount of reactive materials possible."
