Dr. Alireza Panahpour, DDS is the most experienced 100% holistic and biological dentist in North America.

I come from a long line of dentists; you could say that dental care is part of my DNA. I can remember helping my father care for patients and I was fascinated by his oral surgeries since I was a little boy.

I am a biological dentist — also known as a systemic dentist, using holistic, natural materials and treatments and state-of-the-art technology with an integrative approach.

I recognize the need for a broader scope in modern dentistry. Any intervention on a tooth can have both local and systemic effects on the nervous system, immune system, digestive system, musculo-skeletal system, etc.

My approach to dental health encompasses the patient’s diet, immune and structural integrity, and energetic allignment as well as all the traditional treatments that patients are used to receiving at a conventional dental practice.

I specialize in surgical repair and cavitational osteonecrosis, proper tooth extraction, structural harmony, and — most importantly — helping patients practice preventative dentistry.

I am considered a pioneer in mercury-free, systemic and minimally-invasive dentistry, and I am regularly asked to speak at holistic dental and systemic dental conferences and to naturopathic students worldwide. I would be honored if you wanted to learn more about my experience and research in more than 25 years of practicing holistic, systemic dentistry documented in my 2016 book, “The Good Dentist.”

In addition to my regular practice, I often work in teams with medical doctors and institutions to provide treatments for chronically ill patients around the world. 70% of my patients are referred to me in this way. These patients fly from around the world seeking my treatment for chronic conditions after they have seen doctors from many other disciplines can find no other way to help them. I am now available to see patients in the Gordon Medical offices. I will be doing in-person consultation and exams in our office where he will make recommendations for your procedure and aftercare. I am honored to be able to help them to find a way back to their best and healthiest lifestyle.

I did my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, and obtained my degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of the Pacific, Dugoni School of Dentistry. After graduating with a degree in dental surgery, I obtained further education at the New York Academy of Medicine.

A Different Approach To Pain Caused By TMJ / Bite Alignment
Chronic dental airway space issues and bite malalignment can create long term stress to the cervical spine, which can cause or exacerbate pain or discomfort to many different parts of the body.

Research has demonstrated the relationship between posture and dental occlusion, TM condyle position, and airway space.

You have options for diagnosis and treatment of TMJ. Dr. Panahpour specializes in less invasive treatment that may not (necessarily) involve any of the same appliances or machines that are typically used for TMJ treatment. Dr. Panahpour uses a multidisciplinary approach to oral health and its relationship to whole-body health.

With certifications in A.R.T., Chiro-Dontics, and accreditation in cranial facial epigenetics, Dr. Panahour does a thorough check and a short series of tests for oral and whole-body health, and loss of alignment and strength caused by TMJ utilizing chiropractic, dental orthopedics, cosmetic dentistry, nutrition and cranial orthopedic manipulation techniques as part of every new patient exam.

Removal Of Hidden Dental Infection
Hidden dental infection can form in the jaw bone at the site of root canals and at the site of improper/faulty tooth extractions where remnants, fibers, and sometimes pieces of tooth are left behind. When these sites are not properly cleaned out after the root canal or extraction, they become the perfect home for biofilm and infection.

Unfortunately, a patient will never feel one of these infections hidden deep in their jaw, .because at the site of an old tooth extraction or root canal, the nerve of the tooth is either dead or has been removed.

Surprisingly, a general dentist with a regular 2D ex-ray is unlikely to detect these dental focal infections at the site of a wisdom tooth extraction or beneath an old root canal, but your body’s immune system does. These hidden, chronic infections are a battleground where your body’s immune system is fighting every day.

More and more research is showing us how these jaw infections impact the whole body. For instance, the same bacteria found in gum disease has also been proven to be found in heart disease, diabetes and several types of cancer. Although the relationship is not fully understood, scientists agree that this relationship is present.

There are only a handful of dentists worldwide who have dedicated their life to researching and treating patients from these chronic infections found at the site of faulty tooth extractions and root canals. Dr. Panahpour is one of these elite doctors with the specialized training, experience and technology for imaging, detection and diagnosis of dental focal infection as well as expert-level knowledge, skill and experience in oral surgery and care for dental infection that may be burdening the body’s immune system. We integrate with medical teams all over the world, and we welcome your ND or MD to request 3D bone scan direct resonance digital imaging for their diagnosis as well.

Dr Panahpour’s commitment to excellence in natural biological dentistry can be seen in his personal commitment to education: he has more than 150 advanced continuing education courses on his CV — dozens more than any other dentist in the state of WA.

Active in educating the public about the effects of using mercury in dental amalgam since 1993, Dr. Panahpour was part of a movement that succeeded in the state of California in having dental offices post signs that inform patients about mercury in dental amalgam and the effects of mercury on human health.

Dr. Panahpour’s greatest desire is to educate the public about the need for holistic biological dentistry free of root canals, safe tooth extraction and natural biomimetic materials when necessary as a path for every person’s best health.
