Originally on track to become atherapist, Dr. Elahe Wissinger became frustrated by the restrictions put on her as a peer counselor, as to how much help she could truly offer to people. “I decided to move on to a field where I could provide hands-on help to others through science and art with a strong emotional context; I found that opportunity in dentistry,” explains Wissinger, of E Dental Solutions. “Dentistry is my passion and I have loved and enjoyed every minute of it.”
Initially after graduating as a DMD in 1996, Wissinger was recruited by an all-female practice with an accumulated 85 years of experience between them. “This is where I became diagnostically experienced to the fullest and in all aspects of dentistry. It was educationally the best practice to start gathering knowledge and experience and it propelled me to the practitioner I am today,” says Wissinger. “It was also the place where I first saw appreciation for my work as it relates to the artistic aspect of dentistry. I am told by my patients all the time that I am way more picky than they are. It is always the best kind of criticism I can ever ask for.”
About a year ago, Wissinger began educating herself and her team in holistic dentistry. “I was appalled at the products still in use and promoted actively in dentistry like fluoride and silver mercury fillings—both of which are neurotoxins. I believe the more we are aware of what is toxic to our system, the more future systemic issues can be avoided that are directly related to those toxins,” she says.
E Dental Solutions provides a wide range of services including: fillings, crowns, veneers, whitening, hygiene care, periodontal care, orthodontics (Invisalign and FastBraces), implant placement and restoration, in addition to full mouth rehabilitation and more. They offer the most effective treatments possible without aggressive or unnecessary treatment planning.
“We place tremendous importance on educating our patients, while delivering services with the compassion and care needed to achieve the most optimal dental health,” enthuses Wissinger. “Our patients come to us for the level of care we provide and find a dental family in the process.”
