Hello! I am Dr. David Son. Thank you for visiting the virtual home of my practice. When you make David Son DDS in Irvine your dentist, you can count on a level of care that has a positive influence on whole body wellness.

Irvine, CA dentist bring a fresh perspective to wellness

David Son, DDS is not like any other dental practice you have experienced. You feel the difference at your first phone call. The commitment of Dr. Son and his hand-picked team to the health of patients shines through in every interaction, from knowledge sharing to regular checkups, complex procedures, follow-ups, and insurance and financial questions. If you are looking for a dentist in the Irvine, CA area who does more than fix teeth, it is time to treat yourself to Dr. Son’s level of biological dental care.

Warm environment

It is a simple fact that most people feel a bit nervous about a trip to the dentist. While location and amenities may not be the most compelling factors in your choice of a healthcare provider, a welcoming approach sets the stage for comfortable, relaxing care.

Dr. Son selected 13925 Yale Avenue in Irvine as the home for his practice for its cheerful façade. It is just minutes from the Santa Ana Freeway, and the dental office has ground floor access. There is ample free parking in this uncrowded retail center, with shopping and dining nearby.

The soothing interior décor encourages a deep exhale, as you are greeted by smiling faces and the aroma of complimentary beverages. While some medical offices are repurposed shops, this space was designed specifically to Dr. Son’s requirements for an elegant dental office focused on patient comfort, housing the latest technologies for diagnosis and treatment.

Our people

Dr. Son has a unique combination of professional credentials and experience not found in other dental professionals. He, of course, holds a Doctorate in Dental Surgery and is licensed to practice in the state of California. With a passion for helping patients find the highest possible quality of life, he pursued specialized training in sleep disordered breathing, dental implant surgery, and naturopathic medicine. He attained certification in ozone therapy, dental implantation, Invisalign treatment, and Waterlase dentistry. Most importantly, he applies those focused skills with the human warmth and artistry that comes from more than 25 years of experience in treating real people – not just teeth.

The team of front desk staff, treatment coordinator, assistants, and hygienists bring well over 60 years of combined experience in the field of dentistry to build lasting relationships with patients. They make sure you are treated as a valued individual, whose concerns and opinions matter.

What to expect from biological dentistry

Dr. Son’s early dental training focused on saving teeth, without regard to impact on the patient’s general health. As he gained clinical experience, he came to realize that some treatments that were good for the teeth were not right for the patient. He developed a holistic style that shows genuine concern for the entire person – oral health, whole body wellness, and emotional wellbeing. The result is treatment protocol personalized to each patient’s problems, needs, oral condition, and health. In Dr. Son’s care, biological dentistry is not one material, technique, or treatment. It is an overarching approach that helps patients live well.

A core concept at David Son, DDS is mercury-free/mercury-safe treatment. Conventional silver-colored amalgam filling material is comprised of about 50 percent mercury, a potent neurotoxin. Dr. Son places no amalgam, instead, offering bio-friendly alternatives such as tooth-colored composite resin fillings and biocompatible non-metal restorations. He uses some of the most powerful equipment available for ventilation and removal of airborne mercury vapor during removal of amalgam fillings. Other stringent safeguards are followed to ensure mercury leaks are located and addressed, and to protect the patient, staff, and environment from mercury exposure. Dr. Son is especially serious about this aspect of biological dentistry.

Your teeth, mouth, smile, lifestyle, and budget are not like those of any other person. Dr. Son and his team understand. They offer a broad range of services and biologically-friendly treatment options to help you enjoy the smile of your dreams, without compromising your health.

What biological dentistry can mean to your health

Each time you chew or grind on an amalgam filling, mercury vapor is released. Depending on the ability of your immune system to manage toxic loads, mercury – whether inhaled, ingested, or absorbed by soft tissues – has the potential to cause serious neurological problems presenting as nervousness, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, memory problems, depression, numbness, and tremors. Since the body is not adept at flushing mercury, it accumulates over time, leading to muscle weakness, nausea and vomiting, impaired motor skills, respiratory difficulties, and changes in sensation, vision, hearing, and speech. Holistic dental care helps to alleviate this risk.

Gum disease is an infection silently raging 24/7/365. Pathogens from infected gums are known risk factors for stroke, heart attack, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. Biological dental care gets gum disease under control and manages it effectively.

Failed root canal procedures, bone cavitations from improperly extracted teeth, and allergy or sensitivity to materials used in dental restorations can have profound impacts on your physical and emotional wellbeing. Treatment from a dental professional with a deep understanding of the mouth-body connection aids in resolving underlying causes of health problems.

Environmental pollution, and modern diets and lifestyles present many challenges to wellness. Dr. David Son is the dentist that health-savvy individuals in the Irvine, CA area trust for knowledgeable guidance. Call (949) 565-4929 to schedule an appointment.
