Founder of Medicine Wheel Dental and Wellness Center, Dr. Swidler is well known as a teacher, presenter and author in holistic dentistry. “Good health requires not only good oral health, but also balancing many other related factors,” he emphasizes.
Dr. Swidler received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois and was a graduate of the University of Illinois Dental School in Chicago in 1972. After two years of clinical and private practice in Chicago, Swidler relocated to Tucson in 1974. Here, he entered a deeply committed educational direction to become a pioneer in holistic and integrative approaches.
Dr. Steven Swidler has practiced holistic, mercury free (amalgam silver filling-free) and mercury safe dentistry since 1976. He integrates a balanced mix of traditional dentistry with naturopathic, homeopathic and alternative treatment modalities.
His goal is to treat his patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with his patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health. He fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
