Dental Health is a Choice

We approach dentistry with a holistic view and seek to treat the entire patient and not just the presenting symptom.


All patients receive a comprehensive examination. Based on the results, we work with them on a proper diagnosis and treatment plan and review the findings with the patients. I see one patient at a time in a very private and quiet atmosphere.

I work on the fact that the mouth is the pathway to the rest of the body. The mouth is also a part of a chewing system. We focus on the cosmetic aspects as well as the way the teeth relate to the joints and chewing muscles. By approaching dentistry in this manner, people will look good, they will feel well, and they will be able to chew well. This sets the foundation to create a smile that lasts for a lifetime.

Reducing Dental Treatment

We focus on helping people to know what level of health they are in and then create options to repair problems if they are in need. If you experience any of the following symptoms, it may be a sign of dental disease that could have long term effects to your systemic health.

  • Headaches / Migraines
  • TMJ / TMD
  • Jaw pain
  • Popping / clicking joints
  • Root canals
  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal (Gum) disease
  • Cracked tooth
  • Worn teeth
  • Chipping of teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Gingivitis / bleeding gums
We have many years of experience partnering with our patients to help restore them to health. Regular checkups and maintenance to cosmetic dentistry, implants or dentures…we provide comprehensive dental care to help you reach (and maintain) your goals.

Suffering With TMJ

You don’t have to, we can help!

6-Month Cleaning Myth

It is looking to the cause of dental problems rather than simply treating only the disease. The three points of the pyramid stand for: body, mind, and spirit. There must be a relationship created that takes into account the whole person when helping people become healthy.
“My commitment is to help each patient need the least amount of dental care over their lifetime.”
With this philosophy, I can help you achieve the goals that you set for yourself pertaining to your health —being future-focused, you can prevent disease from happening and take control of your health instead of leaving it up to fate or luck. By entering into a coaching relationship with you, I can help you to become as healthy as you would like to be.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the most frequently asked questions encountered by dental practices. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact the office of Dr. TJ Bolt.

How can I go about finding a new dentist?
First, assess your own needs and preferences, including the location of the dentist’s office, the hours that the office is open, the languages spoken by the dentist and staff, and whether the dentist specializing in any particular area. Asking friends or family members for a recommendation is often helpful. Check to see whether the office is currently accepting new patients. The best way to find out if the dentist is right for you is to go in for an appointment.
I keep hearing that I should go to the dentist every six months. Is that really necessary?
How often you should visit the dentist depends on your individual oral health. Your dentist will make a personalized recommendation to you based on the health of your mouth. One visit every six months is a good idea for most people. You are encouraged to see the dentist routinely in order to detect small problems before they become big problems. There are many factors that affect your oral health and how often you should see the dentist, including the following: Do you brush your teeth at least twice a day? Do you floss your teeth every day? Do you eat a nutritious diet that is low in sugary, sticky foods? Do you smoke cigarettes or use chewing tobacco? Have you had cavities or gum disease in the past? Are you in good health overall?
My dentist is recommending a course of treatment, but I don’t understand what that treatment is. What should I do?
Ask! Your dentist is there to answer all of your questions and make you feel as comfortable as possible. If you don’t know what the procedure being recommended involves, ask the dentist to explain it. If you don’t ask, the dentist may assume that you are already familiar with the procedure. Go ahead and ask what will happen. Ask to see pictures of before and after examples. Ask how many times the dentist has performed this procedure, how long it will take, how much it will cost, and what other options are available to you.
Should I have x-rays taken every time I see the dentist?
Again, it depends on your oral health. If you are in good oral health and haven’t had any cavities or other problems recently, then you may not need to have x-rays taken at every visit. If you have had some problems, your dentist may want to keep a closer eye on things by taking x-rays more frequently.
At what age should my child go to the dentist for the first time?
It is a good idea for every child to see the dentist by their first birthday. At home, you can clean your child’s gums with a soft, wet washcloth before they develop teeth. After their teeth begin to come in, you can brush them using a toothbrush and fluoride-free toothpaste.
How do I know that my dentist is using proper hygiene precautions?
Your dentist and dental hygienist follow standard precautions for hygiene. This includes wearing gloves and a mask, washing their hands frequently, sterilizing equipment, and cleaning furniture. For reassurance, you can ask the dentist or staff to show you how the equipment is cleaned.

Removing Mercury Fillings

Dr. Bolt and his staff have been trained to safely remove mercury fillings.
Learn how removing mercury fillings is just one step of the holistic dental treatment process. We look at you as a whole person and work to minimize the need for future dental care. We work to find the cause of dental disease, as opposed to just treating symptoms.

Age Reducing Dentistry

There are three reasons that people lose their teeth. They are (1) tooth decay, (2) gum disease, and (3) bad bite. The first two are diseases of choice. You don’t have to have them if you don’t want them.

By partnering with our dental team, we coach you on how to prevent the causes of disease and what role you play in this process. The last one BAD BITE you can’t do anything about by yourself. Bad bite is not whether your teeth are straight or not. It is the lack of the way the chewing muscles, joints, and teeth relate to each other. Bad bite can cause your teeth to chip/wear and over time makes them shorter and shorter. This will make you look older than you really are. Making sure that you have a healthy chewing system will keep you looking young, as well as make sure that your teeth, muscles, and joints are healthy.
