A Healthy Choice For Dentistry
Rehme Dental Care
Discover Biological Dentistry and the Tooth-Body Connection
Greater St. Louis’ Choice for
Holistic & Biological Dentistry
For more than three decades, our office has provided a comprehensive approach for holistic and biological dental care for our patients.
We understand that the mechanical benefits of restoring the mouth go hand-in-hand with the biological effects these procedures can have on the rest of the body. The tooth/body relationship must be respected. Oral health and whole body health are inextricably linked.
We use dental materials that lend themselves to wellness. We recognize how treatments such as root canals and implants may compromise health and well-being. We acknowledge the risk of cavitations that may go undetected for many years and how to treat these lesions with safe and effective results.
We hope that our website offers you a new insight on how to approach your dental care, both from a mechanical as well as a biological perspective.
“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.”

Our Patient Testimonials
Amalgam removal and cavitation surgery…
Tricia, Age 36, Female
January 22, 2015
Since having Dr. Rehme perform my dental work (removing amalgams) and Dr. Moreland perform my cavitation work, I’ve noticed several improvements in my health. The most significant improvement I’ve noticed is that I an able to consistently fall asleep easily at night and stay asleep all night long. This is a problem I’ve struggled with for some twenty years. Also while asleep, I would grind my teeth and wake with headaches. I no longer have this problem. I used to keep my jaw clenched throughout the day, causing headaches and this has disappeared as well. I used to struggle to make it through a day of normal activities. Overall I feel more energetic, and as though a weight has been lifted from my body.
Removal of Root Canal Tooth . . .
Carolyn, Age 66, Female
January 22, 2015
I came to your office because I had a bad tooth and had been told that I probably needed a root canal. I was not comfortable with getting a root canal, so I was referred to you by a friend. After consulting with your office, I decided to have the tooth in questions extracted. This seemed like a better option, since no one could guarantee a root canal would even solve my problem.
The tooth was extracted very quickly and painlessly.
Since the tooth has been out, I have noticed quite an improvement in my sinuses and while I had some back problems before the extraction, lately my back has been feeling much better. I am very glad I decided on getting rid of that old diseased tooth. I would do it again in a minute.
Since Amalgam Removal . . .
Susan, Age 56, Female

Life has improved so much that it is hard to remember what it was like before.
I still need 8-9 hours of sleep most nights, but I no longer need a 2-3 hour nap every day - I no longer need 20 minute cat naps every couple of hours.
I go weeks without headaches instead of days. I can focus and retain much more information I don’t catch every cold I’m exposed to – I haven’t had any bronchial infections or yeast infections – they were chronic before.
As I approach my sixties I definitely feel better than I did in my thirties.
Feeling Great …
Sharen, Age 49, Female
January 22, 2015
In July of 2004 I had an oral surgeon remove a left jaw cavitation. Upon leaving the office that day I had an enhanced feeling of mental and physical energy. I only had to take one pain pill. My pain level was a “2” ( out of 10). I woke up each day with a bounce out of bed. I woke up mentally alert, usually around 8-9 a.m. Prior to the surgery, I woke up at 11 a.m. feeling fatigued, and mentally foggy. I would usually eat and then go back to sleep.
I now get up by 9:30 a.m. at the very least and nap occasionally (1-2 hours) around 3 p.m.
I’ve had people tell me that I look “really good” – well rested and much more healthy.

Tooth/Body Flashback: Study Highlights Elevated Mercury Vapor Exposure from Americans’ “Silver” Amalgam Fillings
Although a mercury-free future for dentistry seems closer than ever now, research continues to document the effects of dental amalgam, as well as removing it. After all, even if every dentist in the world stopped filling teeth with this neurotoxic material today,...
One of the problems with mainstream mouthwashes is that they’re a little bit too powerful. They not only “kill the germs that cause bad breath;” they kill plenty of beneficial bacteria, too, while also drying out your mouth. Over time, this can actually make bad...
