Dr. Hartman is a holistic general dentist who believes patients today increasingly take more responsibility for their own healthcare. He knows they tend to be well read, educated by previous dental experiences, and more discriminating in their choice of treatment methods. He has a desire to help health-minded patients achieve optimum wellness. Dr. Hartman wants to teach these patients that much more is known about the interactions between the teeth and the whole body functions, about the negative effects of many materials and about the alternatives that are more biologically compatible then the traditional methods.
