Dear Neighbor,

My name is Dr. James Lago, I’m a graduate with honors of Loyola School of Dentistry in Chicago. I have studied and researched for many years in Environmental & Molecular Toxicology and have a doctorate degree in Biological Dentistry and Medicine.

My office, named as one of the “America’s Best Holistic Dentist,” is only minutes away from your neighborhood, on 3 S. Prospect (Suite #9), Park Ridge, IL 60068. Just 10 minutes from O’Hare International Airport.

I’m pleased to tell you that many people have been relying on me for natural holistic dental work, safe bio-compatibility dental products, fluoride free treatments, heavy metal detox, and proper protocol in mercury removal for quite some time. (I’ve been in practice since 1991, incidentally.)


Reason #1:      Prevention is healthier than a cure. Having regular dental visits can help check for conditions such as tooth decay, gum disease, mercury and other heavy metal health exposures.
Reason #2:      As an effective means of maintaining a bright smile, replacing crowns and reconstruction of teeth with the most biologically compatible materials for the human body.
Reason #3:      Relieving pain and discomfort. Fortunately, I, Dr. James Lago, am quite gentle and use proper protocols to clean, restore and help prevent the same problem from reoccurring.

I deeply care for my patients and always provide the best suggestions and considerations for optimal health. Therefore I work closely with specialists in the oral and medical fields to provide the optimal treatment plan for each individual. I am passionate for helping men, women and children improve their overall dental / oral health experience starting on their first visit.


Depending on your needs, I use proper biological protocols which are the cleanest, safest and most biologically compatible for your body without compromising strength, longevity and cosmetics. Your visit takes place in a 100% private, comfortably appointed, operatory "sterile room." Our office, incidentally, looks and “feels” very much like a medical doctor’s office. And, by the way, I am Licensed General Dentist with at least of 25+ years of education, training and experience, and I am typically very knowledgeable about Toxicity and Biology of the human body and how biology relates to my dental work that I do for my patients in which is admired from my repeated patients over the years.

In addition, I am a caring professional. Your visit experience is caring and professional in every way. It is also very relaxing and enjoyable.

Furthermore, many medical doctors, clinics, hospitals, and my own patients refer patients from auto or at-work accidents, sports injuries, cosmetic, whitening, all metal-free alternatives, fluoride-free treatments, proper protocol in mercury removal and various other situations to me for Dental work.

To introduce you to the many benefits of Holistic Dentistry, I invite you to come in for a quick, 15-minute staff consultation.


Aches, pains, frequent gum bleeding, frequent bad breath, daily mouth soreness, and yellow plaque on teeth are problems --- these are ‘warning signals’ from your body to you. Your body is warning you that it is being abused, not getting the proper cleaning and relaxation it needs. Silencing this pain with aspirin, sleeping pills, and other drugs is not the answer. Holistic Dentistry is a better, natural, drug-free, biological benefit care approach.  Try It! And there are other, surprisingly simple things you can do for yourself, at home, to help prevent diseases – all discussed at time of consolation.

To your health,

Dr. James Lago, B.A., E.M.T., D.D.S., Licensed General Dentist, Biological and Environmental Dentistry.

What is Environmental and Biological Dentistry and Medicine?

The Environment is generally not viewed as a place that has an effect on our health and at best our diet is viewed as a superficial source of metabolic functions. External and internal stressors compromise biological functions causing environmentally triggered illnesses. These stressors range from any one time exposure to long term exposures. The negative effects depend on the patient's genetic make-up, general health, nutrition, internal and external stressors, and other biological principles including biochemical susceptibilities, systematic load of stressors, adaptability, the bipolarity of responses, the spreading and switch phenomenon. --AAEM website

Everyone should choose a dentist based on his ability to improve health and his or her knowledgeable in the alternatives to Mercury, Composites, Metals, Fluoride, Root Canals, TMJ, Cavitations and High Speed Drilling.
