Holistic, Biological Dentistry for Anacortes,

A New Year, a New Dentist

After a long and successful career of helping patients in their quest for optimal oral-systemic health, biological dentist Dr. Borneman has retired from practice.

The same level of care is still being provided here, though, by Dr. Roy Chen, who began working with Dr. Borneman in 2018.

A member of the International Academy of Biological Dentistry & Medicine, Dr. Chen continues Dr. Borneman’s legacy of using minimally invasive techniques and mercury-free, biocompatible materials.

Patients appreciate Dr. Chen for a myriad of reasons, including his well-rounded expertise, thorough attention to detail, and transparent manner.

As a biological dentist, Dr. Russ Borneman is concerned with the relationship between oral and whole body health.

Using minimally invasive techniques, Dr. Borneman customizes each treatment plan to the patient’s unique health situation and needs. His integrative approach combines the best practices of advanced clinical dentistry with holistic practices such as nutritional therapy, homeopathy, and herbal medicine.

Our office is fluoride-free, mercury-free, and mercury-safe. We use only BPA-free biocompatible materials and emphasize the use of sustainable products to minimize our environmental impact.

When mercury amalgam “silver” fillings must be removed, we follow IAOMT safety protocols to protect the health of the patient, dental team, and planet alike.

Always, our goal is to help you become the healthiest possible version of yourself.
