I graduated Marquette University School of Dentistry in 2009. While in a General Practice residency at Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago, in the middle of a surgical procedure I realized, “There must be a more natural way to practice dentistry”. Being curious about nutrition from grade school and being a competitive athlete throughout my adolescence, optimal health and nutrition was always of interest to me. Curious about natural medicine from around the world I started searching for ways to integrate my passion of helping people with a more natural form of dentistry. I started questioning the conventional teachings of dentistry which led me down the rabbit hole of holistic, biological dentistry. Throughout my journey I became a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, an Accredited member of the IAOMT and SMART certified. She obtained her Naturopathic Medical Doctor Board Certification, along with a degree in Integrative
Biologic Dental Medicine. She is the current president of the Holistic Dental Association. A student of life, Dr.
Teplitsky is constantly seeking ways to help her patients improve their health and their overall lives.
I have realized that this type of dentistry is not revolutionary, but rather evolutionary. It just takes institutions too long to change their ways and thus schools are not teaching the most modern medicine.
I like to consider myself as a forever student seeking to better the condition of every patient that I see. This requires an interdisciplinary approach to medicine, and dentists are a big part of the puzzle.
I am here to play my part and to help my patients improve their health by concentrating on their oral health.
