Our Mission:

At Total Health Dental Center our goal is to make you, our patient, feel comfortable and cared for by providing optimum dentistry that considers and benefits your total health.

We deliver dental care that is focused on the needs of our patients, not on what is or isn’t reimbursable by insurance.  This patient-first approach insures that you receive all the dental care that you need – nothing more and most certainly nothing less.

Total Health Dental Center cares about your total health.  We offer dentistry the way it should be.

Dr. Bruce Carlson, DDS Dentist

Total Health Dental Care

At Total Health Dental Center our goal is to be the community’s leading provider of innovative dental solutions, helping our patients achieve Total Health.

Dental-Medical-HealthHere’s what we mean by total health.  Research has shown that proper dental care can have a positive impact on the effectiveness of treatments you’re receiving for certain diseases and chronic illnesses.

We have seen such great results when our patient’s medical treatment is paired with our properly delivered dental care. This is why we continue to use evidence-based treatments – supported by research – to provide the best total health outcomes for our patients.

At Total Health Dental Center we care about your total health. Read more about our concept of Total Health in HOW WE’RE DIFFERENT.


Take The THDC Challenge

Make sure you see the license of the Registered Dental Hygienist in the office of your current dentist. If you do not see it, please ask. It is your right to know that your cleaning is being performed by a person with the appropriate training to clean your teeth below the gum line.

Within one week of a cleaning, stop by our office and tell us that you have come to take the Total Health Dental Challenge. It will take no more than 10 minutes and no appointment is necessary. We will show you if you received any benefit from your cleaning at the other dental office. We hope this experience will give you peace of mind that you are receiving high-quality dental care OR indicate that it is time for a change in your approach to your dental health.
