At Elevate Dental Wellness, we consider how dental care affects your overall health and well-being. Many of our patients are unaware of the negative effects that traditional dental techniques and treatments can have on the body.
Take a look at the services we offer that work with your body to help you achieve optimal wellness.
Safe Biocompatibility Testing
Each patient reacts to certain materials differently. Personal biocompatibility testing allows Drs. Van Gorden and Steinbach to get a better understanding of each patient’s reactions to our restorative materials. This testing helps us provide high-quality care using materials that are well-suited to your unique body.
Elevate Dental Wellness is a fluoride-free practice. As holistic dentists, Drs. Van Gorden and Steinbach use minimally toxic methods to enhance and protect your teeth. All materials used in our Basalt office are fluoride-free, BPA-free, and Bis-GMA-free to ensure unmatched safety and peace of mind.
Natural Remedies for Oral Health
We use natural remedies for oral health as they’re recognized to possess natural healing and soothing properties. Natural dental materials and products are safe, effective, and don’t involve chemicals or additives found in other oral hygiene products. And best of all, they do everything that traditional dental products do, in a healthier way.
Your nutrition plays an important role in the health of your teeth, gums, and your entire mouth. At your appointment, Drs. Van Gorden and Steinbach will put aside time to talk to you about your eating and drinking habits. They’ll offer specific diet recommendations, or nutritional counseling, that can help improve your oral health and overall well-being.
Nutritional Supplement Support
Certain oral health problems can be helped with nutritional supplements. Dr. Steinbach offers supplementation from several sources, including Pure Encapsulations and Douglas Laboratories. Based on your unique health concerns, we can recommend the supplements that’ll best benefit the health of your teeth and gums.
Our practice proudly features ozone therapy, an effective treatment for several dental issues and procedures. Ozone can be used to eliminate oral bacteria and viruses, prevent tooth decay and cavities, slow the progression of periodontal disease, relieve pain from mouth ulcers, and reduce any tooth sensitivity you may experience.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are silver tooth fillings harmful?
Dental amalgams, also called silver fillings, contain approximately 50 percent mercury along with other metal elements. Mercury is the most toxic, non-radioactive substance on Earth and is an extremely potent neurotoxin.
Drs. Van Gorden and Steinbach are proud to have never placed a silver mercury filling in our office and never will! We are one of only a few SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique) Certified offices in the state of Colorado.
Why is Elevate Dental Wellness fluoride-free?
We firmly believe that fluoride has numerous negative systemic health effects and there are countless studies that prove it does very little to prevent tooth decay. For more information on this, we strongly encourage you to visit http://fluoridealert.org/.
What if I want to learn more about my nutritional choices?
If you want to explore your nutritional choices in-depth, Drs. Van Gorden and Steinbach can refer you to a nutritional counselor for more help. We hope to bring comprehensive nutritional counseling to our natural dentistry practice soon!
Which natural materials and products do you offer?
Elevate Dental Wellness uses mercury-free biocompatible materials and clean products for safe, effective techniques and treatments. We use floss, toothpaste, and powder that’s free of foaming agents, coloring, glycerine, and fluoride. They do everything that traditional dental products do, just in a healthier way.
Our practice also offers a range of products to help keep your smile bright and healthy, including electric toothbrushes, tongue cleaners, water flossers, and fluoride-free remineralizing sprays.

When it comes to your oral health, it’s important to know what’s going into your body. That’s why we provide our patients with trustworthy, natural options for dental care that don’t involve artificial ingredients.
