About Elevate Dental Wellness in Basalt, CO

Our Mission Statement

Dr. Schuyler Van Gorden and Dr. Rebecca Steinbach, our holistic dentists, have established a practice centered on biological dentistry and providing our clients with patient-centered, high-quality, total health and wellness-focused oral healthcare.

Our Story

After returning from a year-long trip through Central and South America, Dr. Schuyler Van Gorden and Dr. Rebecca Steinbach developed a spectrum of significant health issues. Through a combination of research and integrative and natural therapies, they came across the philosophy and practice of biological dentistry.

Over the last four years, our holistic dentists pored over information and courses about the importance of:

  • Maintaining oral health for the benefit of total body health
  • The role that toxic mercury plays in disease
  • How to protect themselves and their patients by removing mercury safely
  • The benefits of ozone therapy
  • The reasoning behind offering biocompatible dental materials testing

When the time was right and the opportunity to build a new office arose, Dr. Schuyler Van Gorden and Dr. Rebecca Steinbach jumped at the chance to build their biological dental practice. Learning about and practicing biological dentistry has breathed new life into their careers as they have shifted from the practice of dentistry into the practice of dental wellness.

As holistic dentists, this is their opportunity to integrate your dental care into total body care and help you achieve the highest state of health.

Our Commitment

At our practice, we believe that all of our patients are unique and deserve dental care that reflects their individual needs and expectations. That’s why Dr. Schuyler Van Gorden and Dr. Rebecca Steinbach, our holistic dentists, provide biological dentistry with a patient-centered approach. We’re dedicated to helping our patients achieve total body health and wellness.

Whether you’re looking for general, restorative, cosmetic, integrative dentistry, oral surgery, or sleep apnea treatment, you’ll feel right at home in our holistic dental practice. We’re committed to working with you, your family, and friends to create an uplifting, comfortable, and stress-free experience every time you visit our practice.
