OVERVIEW

Hi! I’m Dr. Bernice Teplitsky, but you can call me Dr. T. I practice dentistry a bit differently than most dentists. Research shows that dental problems can lead to other medical problems. As a holistic dentist, I care about your whole health – not just your oral health. I focus on preventative oral care to stop problems before they develop and work with your physician or other healers to coordinate treatment, so that your whole body is cared for. I’ve been in the dental field since I was 16 years old and got my first job working as a dental assistant in Highland Park, IL. I graduated from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI, with a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science and a certificate in Gerontology (treatment of the aging population). After I graduated from Marquette University’s School of Dentistry, I completed a general practice residency at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. Working at a hospital setting, particularly working in the emergency and operating rooms, gave me great surgical experience with very complex cases. It also taught me to be a partner with my fellow medical colleagues. So I love to intertwine dentistry with other fields of Eastern and Western medicine. Soon after graduating, I discovered holistic dentistry and started visiting my dental colleagues all over the country, learning how they practice holistic dentistry (also known as biological dentistry, nutritional dentistry, and integrative dentistry). I saw how they were able to cure patients with chronic diseases by using nutrition, biocompatible dental materials, and removing toxins from the mouth. I was hooked. I thought it was so cool to see people feeling vibrant, energetic, and disease free because of improvement in dental health. I noticed that people who took care of their mouth tended to be healthier all-around. The patients who focused on improving their oral health started seeing changes in other areas of their health, body, and daily life. My goal became to make all my patients healthier through superior dental care. Of course, I think that dental treatment is a two-way street. I give my patients resources to learn about what’s going on in their mouths. But it is their responsibility put forth the effort for a healthy mouth. We provide an entertaining, and educational blog, newsletter, host events, and give lectures about dentistry to help people understand the importance of oral health. Whether or not you’re a patient, you’re welcome to browse the site and learn more about holistic dentistry. I’m also a member of the following dental organizations: International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology Academy of General Dentistry Holistic Dental Association *(board member) American Dental Association Chicago Dental Society Illinois State Dental Society When not in the office, I enjoy yoga, hiking, traveling, photography, cooking, Latin dance, and meditation. I’m also fluent in Spanish and Russian. So if you’re ready to come see a holistic dentist that cares about your entire health as much as you do, come to Lakeview and check out Wrigleyville Dental. Even if it’s just to visit and say “hi,” we’ll be waiting for you with a smile and a cup of tea. And by the way, to really show you how much we care about prevention, we’ll give you a free Sonicare Electric Toothbrush (for all new patients after exam, x-rays, and cleaning). So before we run out of tooth brushes, click here or call 773-975-6543 for your appointment. I’m looking forward to meeting you in person.
