Whole Health Dental Group Dr. Silvano Senn is a California native and he grew up with two overriding passions: one for art, and one for science. While others have felt compelled to choose one passion and sacrifice the other, the thousands of people who have benefitted from Dr. Senn’s caring, skilled, whole health dentistry can unanimously be grateful that he didn’t choose just one, but instead combined them. Dr. Senn earned his BS from San Jose State University, followed by his DDS from the University of California (San Francisco) where he also completed a rigorous General Practice Residency. For more than 27 years, Dr. Senn has brought an innovative artistic and scientific vision to the field of general dental health. It is this brilliant vision – one that treats the whole patient and not just dental issues – that continues to successfully guide him today. In fact, a patient of Dr. Senn will benefit from his experience and licensing in naturopathic medicine, as a naturopathic medical doctor (NMD). This is incorporated into his environmentally-friendly, incredibly relaxing practice located in Sebastopol, where he has been serving patients since 2005. He is pleased to share that he is one of only a few Dentists approved to represent Premier Research Labs and their products. Dr. Senn maintains membership in many professional associations. These include: International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), Redwood Empire Dental Society, and Mercury Free Dentists. He is also proud of his work and association in Public Health Dentistry. Along with his desire to contribute to patient health, Dr. Senn is also proud to be a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation, a nonprofit which operates around natural and proven elements of nutrition education. Of course, if you ask Dr. Senn about his many accomplishments and deep knowledge base, you may be surprised that the first thing you’ll hear from him isn’t about any of this at all; it will be about his wonderful team. As one of the truest team members you’ll ever find, Dr. Senn understands deeply, and better than most, that it takes a highly-trained, cohesive, efficient team to deliver the highest standards of care, service, and results for patients. And just as humbly, if you ask Dr. Senn what energizes him most about his job, he won’t talk about himself or his impressive skills. Instead, he’ll gladly talk about the community that has embraced him, and the feeling is mutual: “The community in which I’m practicing is so amazing, that I feel I’m blessed every day I enter it. I look forward to my interactions with people, which is an absolutely phenomenal aspect my job. It’s something that I cherish all the time!” Dr. Senn is also committed to volunteer work, and is currently helping a pair of children from Russia’s deeply challenged Chernobyl area. Of course, if you ask Dr. Senn, he will say that it was the other way around. Helping others and having his work make a real, healthy difference, both personally and to the environment, is not a gift that he gives others. It is a gift that others give him!
