With more and more people waking up to the dangers of fluoride, the popularity of fluoride-free dentists is on the rise.
This is no surprise, as the fluoride used in dental offices is very toxic. But thankfully there are alternatives that are just as effective and most importantly – not toxic for your health.
But finding a fluoride-free dentist is hard.
Mainly because they are known as “holistic dentists” but not all holistic dentists offer fluoride-free services. So that’s why I’ve put together a list of fluoride-free dentists from across the USA, Canada, Australia and England into an interactive map you can use to find the closest one to you.
How To Use The Fluoride-Free Dentist Map
To use the fluoride-free dentist map all you have to do is fill out the “Your Location” box with either the city you live in OR for more accurate results, your zip/postal code.
Then press the “Search” button.
After that, you will see the fluoride-free dentists that are closest to you (to the left of the map if you’re on a computer or below the map, if you are on your phone).
At this point you’ll see all the information you need and can do the following:

5 Reasons To Choose A Fluoride-Free Dentist
Here are some of the differences you’ll find between holistic (including fluoride-free) and traditional dentists. Just keep in mind traditional dentists may do some of the following, it’s just unlikely they would do everything mentioned.
Otherwise, they’d most likely call themselves holistic dentists.
1. Holistic Approach
Holistic dentists consider your whole body, not just the mouth.
This leads to a higher quality of service and results that are not only good for the body but also your teeth and gums.
And the other 4 reasons below are examples of how this plays out in the real world.
2. They Don’t Use Mercury
Yes, you read that right.
Many traditional dentists use “fillings” that contain mercury which is ranked third by the US Government Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry as the most toxic element or substance on the planet next to arsenic and lead.
So while traditional dentists see mercury as an efficient material for fillings, they fail to acknowledge the effect mercury could have on the rest of your body. Which has led many people to holistic dentists asking for their removal (pictured below).
So not only will holistic dentists never use mercury fillings (also known as amalgam fillings) they can also remove previous fillings.
Leading us to a larger difference between the two types of dentists, which is holistic dentists put extra emphasis on biocompatible materials (material that is not harmful to living tissue). Which evolves around the root belief that whatever is place in your mouth with have an effect on the rest of your body.
3. Safer X-Rays
Holistic dentists use digital radiography instead of traditional x-rays, which results to as much as 80% less radiation.
Furthermore, digital radiography does not require any chemical processing which is better for the environment and thus better for you (what goes around, comes around).
4. Preservation of Teeth
Holistic dentists use techniques that preserve as much of your existing tooth as possible.
For example, they limit drilling and when needed only do what’s needed.
While when it comes to root canals, they only recommend it if it’s absolutely necessary (saving you money and your tooth).
5. They Don’t Use Fluoride
Last but not least, the dentists included in this article have made it clear they either:
- Never use fluoride, OR
- Give YOU the option to choose whether you want to use fluoride or not
This is very important as the fluoride treatment many traditional dentists use is quite hazardous. Even though these fluoride gels are meant to be applied topically (a.k.a directly to teeth), a significant amount of fluoride is absorbed into the body during treatment.
In fact, even when dentists follow safety precautions, significant ingestion can still take place.
To be exact, when precautions are followed children can ingest an average of 7.7 mg of fluoride per treatment, while adults ingest an average of 10.3 mg.1,2
Enough to produce toxic spikes in blood fluoride levels.
Which happens through accidently swallowing the fluoride gel or through the gel’s high acidity that allows it to cross the directly through the gum membrane and into your body.3
Thankfully, topical ozone therapy can be used as an alternative and provide many more benefits without any harmful effects.
Both holistic and traditional dentists are trained at the same dental schools.
The difference between the two is that holistic dentists will aim to use the least invasive, least traumatic, and least toxic means of diagnosis and treatment (as seen with their fluoride-free alternatives).
Now considering the American Dental Association (ADA) considers fluoride treatment, mercury fillings and many other troublesome procedures safe.
