www.myholisticdentist.com went live in 2000 and in 2006 was updated again. It is one of the oldest sites online about holistic dentistry and its impact on lifestyle and wellness. To celebrate the update of our site and the re-launching of our blog, we will shortly release updated versions of The ABC’s of Sustainable Health and A to Z Holistic Dentistry.
The ABC’s offers a timely and unique view of different aspects of healthy living. A comprehensive template for wellness, each of the twenty-six topics that comprise the program is offered from ‘right-brain’ and ‘left-brain’ perspectives. The left-side topics are about empirical facts, subjects that can be quantified and categorized by the logical mind. The right-side topics pertain more to subjective aspects of experience and to spiritual/emotional and socio-economic themes.
The information in A to Z Holistic Dentistry covers a wide spectrum of topics pertinent from an Integrative perspective. Just as Integrative Medicine seeks to blend traditional and alternative views of medicine for a more comprehensive approach, holistic/integrative dentistry has a similar goal.
To have specific topics addressed in either of these projects, post your questions on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/holisticdds1.
We are also celebrating more than 60,000 views of one of our youtube videos that shows Bacteria Attacking White Blood Cells. Dr. O’Rielly answers comments on this page directly at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AP8yL1qBpw&list=UU-J8_4Mfq9cFei0NDZmL5cg.

Carey O’Rielly DDS has been a practicing dentist for 35 years. He went to USC Dental School and Duke University for his undergraduate degree. He grew up in Laguna Beach and now lives in La Costa with his wife Victoria, who runs his office.
He began his career by owning and operating a network of six offices in the San Francisco Bay Area. Presently he owns a private holistic practice in North County San Diego’s Encinitas.
Dr. O started looking for solutions to his health challenges that resulted from the stress and environmental toxicity that built up over a ten year period running his dental network. He has dedicated himself to learning about oral systemic problems and how dentistry can affect your health. He has applied what he has learned over the last twenty years to ensure he, his staff and his patients are protected from the chemicals and toxic materials found in most dental offices. He has produced an environmentally friendly office that is also peaceful and calm.
He is an expert on dental materials having looked at hundreds of biocompatibility lab tests over the years. He has identified the most bio-friendly materials to use in his practice and which dental materials can be used to replace metal fillings and crowns, including BPA free and fluoride free ‘white’ fillings. He also uses metal-free Zirconia or ceramic implants and PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) grafting materials which come from the patient’s own blood.
Dr. O’Rielly teaches C.E. courses on the systemic effects of gum disease. He is an expert in using phase contrast microscopy for analyzing dental infections, where he shows patients what kind of microbes, i.e. bacteria, amoeba, and yeasts like candida are populating the mouth and affecting the body as a whole.
He has an educational blog and is writing a book on dental health called ‘Hidden Dental Infections: Healing Root Canals and Infected Teeth with the Erbium Laser’ where he discusses dental nutrition, toxic dental materials and the effects of old root canals on inflammation and overall health.
