Palo Alto Functional Dentistry is an established general dental practice, with a focus on oral health conservation and disease prevention through risk assessment. Dr. Leclerc and the highly trained staff is equipped with the most current techniques and materials, as well as latest technologies, in order to develop appropriate soft tissue and dental restorative treatment individualized to each patient.

Dr. Leclerc has been recognized, licensed and certified by the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM). This discipline involves working with the patient to understand their oral and body health both physically as well as systemically, to create a successful roadmap and outcome for the patient.

We are certified by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) in conjunction with current recommendations by the Institute for Functional Medicine.  A conservative, preventive, biometric restorative approach to dental restoration is the focus of treatment at the office. 

A Diagnodent laser is routinely used for the diagnosis of caries while low dose digital imaging and Sirona3D cone beam imaging are available on site when indicated not only for patient implant planning and placement but for oral disease and health assessment.  We also use a Pioneer diode laser for specific soft tissue procedures and treating ulcerative oral lesions as early as when a patient feels them starting.
