Biomimetic and Homeopathic Dentistry
Homeopathic dentistry seeks cures that correspond with the natural laws of healing, which recognize the principle that mind, body, and spirit are interrelated. In addition, the body has the ability to heal itself with the aid of materials and methods that are nontoxic and have no side effects. With this belief, we treat weak, fractured, and decayed teeth to keep them strong and protect them from bacterial invasion. Homeopathy is integrated in our practice and we often use homeopathic remedies before, during, and after the procedures.
We now offer Zirconia ceramic dental implants!
Today, well over 95% of the dental implants placed are titanium alloys. Titanium is a metal, meaning it suffers corrosion. In addition, some people have a sensitivity or allergy to certain metails. To address concerns over titanium dental implants, zirconia ceramic implants were developed. Zirconia is very strong, hard, and has also been used for making crowns and bridges. Additionally, it was discovered that zirconia also fused to bone much like titanium.

Below are 5 simple, yet effective, tips you can use today to improve your dental health:
- Choose a toothpaste that's free of sodium lauryl sulfate.
- Rinse mouth with warm sea-salt water and a few drops of clove or mint oil instead of mouthwash.
- Try "oil pulling" by rinsing your mouth with a tablespoon of coconut oil for approximately 15 minutes, and then spitting out the oil. The antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal components of coconut oil literally pull out any unhealthy microbes that may be hiding in your teeth and gums.
- Invest in a tongue cleaner, a U-shaped tool that scrapes off any residue. If you constantly have a white coating, then consider taking probiotics to control internal yeast.
- For teething in babies, mix clove oil with lavender, orange essential oil, and a bit of coconut oil. Using your finger, apply it to the gums. Put lavender on the back of the baby's neck and on the inside of the wrist. You can also rub the back with lavender or put some drops on the baby's pillow.
- Avoid decay by taking minerals, Vitamin D & K, fermented and sprouted grains, coconut produce, Mānuka honey, probiotics, and avoid sugar!
- Seek a holistic dentist to take care of your fillings. Mercury fillings can be unsafe and can cause a wide range of illness symptoms.
Below are 5 simple, yet effective, tips you can use today to improve your overall health:
- Eat alkaline foods such as beans, and greens to help maintain a good body pH.
- Get plenty of sleep and exercise daily to ward off whole-body inflammation.
- Walk at least 3 times a week for 20 to 30 minutes. Keep your heart rate to 55% – 75% of your maximum heart rate (determined by your age).
- Avoid pesticides in your food, your home and your yard.
- Drink the amount of water equivalent to half your body weight in ounces each day. If you are not drinking water, you are not giving your body the resources it needs to flush toxins and stay healthy!
"I flew to California to see this dentist that was recommended to me by a friend from OC and after checking out his website, I was convinced he is the right doctor to see. Dr. Z, as he is fondly called, is not only SMART certified but he is also accredited with IAMOT which means he uses maximum precautions for treatments especially the amalgam removal. I have seen the movie Root Cause, and I don't have root canals but it was an eye opener that the different materials placed inside our mouth can lead to some illnesses. I was satisfied with the replacement of my amalgam fillings with white ones, not only they look nicer but i feel that it made me healthier. Too bad I don't live in sunny CA but it definitely made my trip worthwhile."
"Had the amalgam removal done a while ago. The doctor and his team seem to be well trained for this kind of work and everything was done quickly and very efficiently. They do a lot of things that you usually don't experience in a dental office like letting you take medicines, using protections like rubber dam, oxygen. I am feeling a lot better now."
"I went to Dr. Zraigat for my amalgam removals after extensive research. I'm confident I chose the right doctor. Dr. Zraigat is very compassionate, knowledgeable, and honest. He didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear and didn't try to sell me on anything. He was very honest about the facts and he did an excellent job. Not to mention being that I was traveling to him from Texas, he was able to get my exam and procedure done all in one day. He was very knowledgeable about detoxing and has a lot of integrative specialists that he knows to help with all stages of that process."
"I am very happy with this dentist and that I can see a holistic practitioner without driving long distances as some others do."
"If you are looking for a holistic dentist to remove silver filings, this guy is the best! It's a little pricey and be prepared to pay cash but they took a lot of precautions in removal that most dentists don't take like full coverage including goggles, hood and body, oxygen during, mouth dam and charcoal and Vitamin c beforehand. If you are looking for holistic look no further!"
"I had the most peaceful teeth cleaning session today with Denise at Holistic Dental Arts. Also, I really appreciate the ozone treatment that is applied at the end, really leaving my mouth feeling fresh. I highly recommend this dental office. Blessings.."
"I went to 3 different dentists they all suggested me to do root canal. I was looking for alternative and found holistic dental arts. Dr. Z was very professional and saved my teeth from root canal. His team was also friendly. I would definitely recommend them!"
"I really enjoyed my cleaning today with Denise. She was gentle yet effective. The front desk people at Holistic Arts are extremely helpful as well."
"An extremely positive experience, all around, from the moment I walked in the door and met Dr. Zraiqat and team! Everyone's energy is amazing at The Holistic Dental Arts, having both the knowledge and bedside manor to rival the best practices out there!! Before ever meeting Dr. Zraiqat I had a really bad root canal infection. So I began doing research on the safest, best way to have my bridge removed. Choosing Dr. Zraiqat was the best decision I could have ever made, he did an amazing job with the removal! Honestly it couldn't have gone any better!! I currently have my temporary flipper and look forward to receiving implants this January. From the furthest depths of my heart thank you Dr. Zraiqat and team for making each dental visit the most comforting experience it could possibly be!!!"
"There are several dentist offices minutes from my home, but I choose to drive 45 minutes each way to see Dr Z. Holistic in nature, insightful checkups and lots of good advice on how to preserve your dental health naturally is what you will receive. No pushing fluoride or unnecessary X-rays on my children too, that is very much appreciated especially when every other dentist office in my experience does this. This knowledge base instantly reduces stress for me as a parent. Also, my son recently had his braces removed by another orthodontist , and unbeknownst to us, this "professional" left all sorts of bonding on his teeth. The hygienist at Holistic Dental Arts graciously polished this bonding off, at no extra charge, which was a pretty big job. This bonding residue was putting his teeth at risk for unnecessary decay. What a difference it made to have it taken off! He finished his cleaning with an ozone treatment which kills bacteria in the pockets of the gums, providing that much more protection. We are SO grateful! Highly recommended this office!"
"You've heard it once, you've heard it a million times.. "I hate going to the dentist!" Dr. Zraiqat and his staff will turn that around the moment you meet them! After my first couple of visits with him, I was convinced that he is a true healer and genuinely cares about his patients and their procedures. Its holistic dental and so much more with him and his team! He understands and cares about how our teeth, bodies, and health all work together, and you certainly don't get that expertise or care everywhere you go."
"I've been going to Holistic Dental Arts for a few years. For filling replacements, removal of mercury amalgams, and teeth cleanings. I was referred by another holistic health practitioner. I have always been very pleased with the work of Dr. Zraigat and his staff. Recently I got my wisdom tooth extracted. Dr. Z said I had a nasty infection. The process went very well. Besides his knowledge, expertise, and latest technology... what I love is his use of Doterra Essential Oils in the use of Aromatherapy in the office. I had already been using them topically, and ingesting them too. The oils took care of my pain and swelling from the extraction."
"I went to 3 different dentists they all suggested me to do root canal. I was looking for alternative and found Holistic Dental Arts. Dr. Z was very professional and saved my teeth from root canal. His team was also friendly. I would definitely recommend them!"
"I really enjoyed my cleaning today with Denise. She was gentle yet effective. The front desk people at Holistic Arts are extremely helpful as well."
"Wonderful experience! Starting with a knowledgeable and helpful front desk staff who were able to get me in same day as I was having pain from an exposed root. And then Dr. Z , who was patient , kind and understanding and really listened to my needs. I always have issues getting "comfortably numb" at the dentist so he made sure I was good and numb before he started working on me. I was skeptical but he was wonderful! Then there was Robert, his assistant, who was so kind , compassionate and very accommodating of my needs. Both were engaging and knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable that I was getting the best care possible! They got me in and fixed my issue all in the same day!! I feel so grateful to have found them! It was the least traumatic experience I've ever had at the dentist ! I couldn't believe how low my anxiety was. They have a new patient in me and I can't wait to schedule a teeth cleaning! Thank you!!!"
"Dr Z and his team (Charlene at the front desk) are a pleasure to meet every visit. I appreciate their attention to detail and being upfront about costs for service. I love how my mouth tastes like fresh rain (ozone) after every visit. Thank you!"
"My experience with Dr. Zraiqat has been absolutely amazing. I have put off going to a dentist for years because of a terrible experience I had years ago. I would have honestly preferred another major spine surgery than seeing the dentist, thats how terrified I was. Dr Z immediately put me at ease, he was so incredibly kind and patient in dealing with me. He is so knowledgable and truly CARES about his patients. I had several teeth pulled, an amazing cleaning with the ozone and had a temp. spacer made. I was blown away with the results. While the process of removing a couple of my teeth was pretty difficult, he was incredible in getting me through it. Robert, his assistant, was wonderful as well. They are a great team. I had clenched my teeth since I was a child, so I ended up with fractures and this past year had a major infection. I had been sick for months, literally felt deathly ill. I had zero energy, woke up with cold sweats nightly, etc. I was miserable. The doctors couldn't give me answers. I finally decided to address my teeth issues and the day after I had the problem teeth pulled, I woke up feeling like a new person. I cannot believe the difference. It is amazing the effect poor dental heath can have on your entire body. I am beyond grateful to Dr. Z and his office staff, they have all been amazing. I was so nervous anticipating a lot of pain after the numbing medication wore off, it was un believable, I had no pain following such a major procedure. The Ozone that was used during and after was incredible and helped with the healing. I can honestly say I look forward to going back. Never thought I would say that about a dentist. Please look no further, Dr. Z and his team are simply the BEST!"
"Dr. Zraiqat is the COOLEST dentist ever and definitely worth the drive (from inland empire)! This man really knows his field and you can respect his holistic approach. I drive out here for the ozone and the "cleaner" options he offers (BPA free, ect). The cleaning alone has been the smoothest my teeth have ever felt in my 20 years of having them life. I truly believe I've found a dentist I can trust."
"My cleaning was done with Ozone and I feel the procedure was done with great care."
"Dr. Ayman [Zraiqat] is the epitome of holistic. Rest assured your in good hands with an individual who is constantly providing the latest in cutting-edge technology dentistry. Dexterity at it's finest with emphasis on patients needs. A sympathetic doctor who goes above and beyond anything else I have experienced. Safe, Exceptional and Dedicated are three words can describe the practice they conduct at their facility."
"Dr. Zraiqat and his staff are amazing. By far, hands down, this has been the best experience I've ever had with a dentist. He is an expert in holistic dentistry and the body. And he is so conservative that he saved a tooth that NO ONE else could or would try to save. Can't recommend him highly enough."
"The office is great. There are fountains and serene music playing. Care for health is thought through. Diet is questioned for good oral health by this dentist. I went into this office for a tooth that died biting into a pitless olive that had a pit in it. They used Ozone gas and water to clean the tooth area. Very thorough doctor. I'm so happy to find a dentist that thinks along the same path that I do for my oral health. This dentist has a great attitude along with his staff. Such nice people."
"I had a wisdom tooth removed and two fillings performed so far and I am very pleased with the results. Holistic Dental Arts provides a clean environment and friendly knowledgeable staff. The alternative techniques available are great."
"We had a good experience with the dentist and staff. They are very welcoming and knowledgable."
"Dr. Zraiqat has been able to help me improve my overall health. He's safely removed half of my amalgam fillings, using biocompatible materials. I trust him and his staff and... I was very pleasantly surprised by results from the ozone treatment. I used to dread teeth cleanings, but with ozone applied to my gums, they did not ache afterwards. I am thankful to have found Dr. Zraiqat and his staff because of how much they have helped me to improve my overall health, detox from mercury and repair years of dental neglect."
"Doctor Zraiquat was very informative and genuinely seems to care. It was a pleasure getting my amalgams replaced with ceramics, not something I ever thought I would say about a dental visit. His dental assistants are also very nice and know their stuff. After going to his office I don't think I will ever go to another dentist. Some may feel skeptical about holistic dentistry, I know I was a bit. But they are using science, it's a whole body science and how it all works together. Yohandra the front receptionist was also very kind and a pleasure speaking with. The praise I am giving is truly a reflection on how my overall experience was. I get nervous around dental offices and needles especially. Dr. Zraiquat has awesome technique, that just gets it done fast and almost completely painless. I only felt a little discomfort for a second, phew. What else can I say, if you're looking for a dentist you can trust knows his profession and has the experience to back it up and has the best technique I've come across, then look no further!"

"Dr. Zraiqat has it all - he is knowledgeable, professional, passionate, dedicated and committed to doing everything necessary to ensure the dental health of his patients is of the highest quality and exceeds all standards. Best of all Dr. Zraiqat is compassionate - he really cares! Do you and your family a favor - go see Dr. Zraiqat and his fantastic staff!"
"Hands down, best dental experience I've ever had. Simply put, Dr. Zraiqat is awesome. He and his wonderful staff are friendly, caring, and clearly committed to providing their patients with excellent care. I needed an extraction and was a little freaked out, but Robert and Dr. Z really put me at ease and the procedure was smooth as can be; it healed beautifully - no pain, no swelling. This was in part attributable to the addition of platelet rich fibrin, a service provided at HDA which I'm so glad I was able to avail myself of. Dr. Z also gave me a lot of great tips regarding supplements and natural holistic healing regimens.
If you want a dentist who will treat you like a person, not a clinical specimen, and provide you with cutting edge services and the highest level of care - Dr. Z is your guy. I really can't praise the folks at Holistic Dental Arts enough!"
"Today, I went there for a general check up and deep cleaning. I can say he's the best dentist ever. He is so patient and clean yet his customer service is the best... I highly recommend him. Go try him and ull love him as much as I did."
"I'm so glad to have found a holistic/biological dentist! I had heard about their approach to dentistry on the documentary called, "The Truth About Cancer."
The office is very clean and I felt right at home immediately. Dr. Z is very knowledgeable about health and did not skip a beat when I mentioned that I have the MTHFR genetic mutation. He also gave me a second opinion on my 6 year old's supposed cavity. Dr. Z was able to let me know that there was in fact NO cavity in her tooth. Best consultation fee ever spent! If I had not sought a second opinion, my 6 year old would have been under anesthesia needlessly (also having one copy of the genetic mutation which prevents her body from detoxing efficiently).
I look forward to continue to see Dr. Z for my dental health and am thankful to have found a dentist who sees the body as a whole and wants to prevent disease rather than cash in on it."
"My first visit went very well. I've been wanting to check out holistic dentistry for years now, I've heard so many good things about this approach. I'm looking forward to my next treatment. Dr. Zraigat is very detailed oriented and will pin point right away all the things that you know have been bothering you and comes up with solutions to fix them. He believes that "a tooth should be fixed permanently so that you never have to come back with the same problem again." He is also very smart and honest. I will be Mercury free soon and hopefully pain free as well!! Thank you DR!!"
"I loved our experience, Vanessa at the desk was a calming influence during my ‘mom freak out’ moments. We got in, got the work done- and were treated humanely. I love the holistic approach and tangible things we were told to do to fight for oral health."
"Dr. Zraiqat is one of the smartest finest dentists you could hope to find. I've been to many dentists and he is the first one to address my dental allergies and start mitigating the inflammation and improving my whole health. If you have idiopathic inflammation, old root canals, autoimmune, or multiple chemical sensitivities he and his staff will take very good care of you!"
"As a psoriatic sufferer, I needed guidance and a doctor who cares to put my health as a priority. I found this at Dr. Z's office. He has state of the art procedures, not to mention very advanced and up to date knowledge of current health issues that will surpass most of which one can research on their own. My dental experience was, is , and will continue to be very fulfilling. Vanessa who works the front house is a marvelous at communicating. She thoroughly explained my benefits and costs. Dr. Z is hands on, and his assistants are great and have superb skill sets themselves."
"I have been seeing Dr. Z for a couple of years now. He is one of the most nicest, caring dentist I have ever met! I usually get anxious and nervous around dentists but Dr. Z is really gentle and thorough. He really uses natural, holistic methods and his knowledge of holistic medicine is superior."
"Best holistic dentist I've been to! I love that he uses safe Mercury removal. He also saved me from a root canal with ozone injections. My family and I will never go anywhere else again. And his staff is amazing!"
"So friendly and helpful. Great with my 3-year-old."
"So happy to have found Dr. Z! His staff from front desk to assistant and hygienist were nice, caring and efficient. I couldn't be happier and look forward to recommending him. His knowledge of holistic and integrative medicine is outstanding."
"An extremely positive experience, all around, from the moment I walked in the door and met Dr. Zraiqat and team! Everyone's energy is amazing at The Holistic Dental Arts, having both the knowledge and bedside manner to rival the best practices out there!!"
"My friend went to see Dr. Ayman and she couldn't stop raving about how much she learned from him and how everyone should be going to a Holistic Dentist over a normal dentist. I admit at first I thought she was a little crazy until I started listening to what she was saying. I got curious so i decided go to for a consultation. When I was in there, he educated me on bolmimetic dentistry is, what ozone therapy does and how Holistic Dentists really focus on whole body health instead of just telling you to brush your teeth, floss, and not eat sugar."
