surgeon Mitra Doherty graduated from Manchester University's
School of Dentistry in 1980 and practices general dentistry
giving full attention to personal patient needs, to the
biological compatibility of dental materials and techniques,
to aesthetics and to optimal means of preserving teeth
with total adhesion.
Dr. Doherty and her dedicated
staff have created a unique dental practice through the
use of biological dentistry. This is a form of dentistry
that avoids the use of toxic materials in your mouth and
integrates your dental health with your overall health.
Her selection of materials is based on biocompatibility,
comfort, aesthetics and durability.
The "whole" patient's health
is served by using relaxation techniques, EFT(emotional
freedom technique), Nutritional counseling using Metabolic

properly informed patients are the persons best suited
to ensure their own dental health and quality of life.
