We practice Holistic Dentistry because
we truly care about your overall health.

When we treat your mouth, we keep the rest of your body in mind. Why? Because your oral health directly affects the rest of your body.

We see patients of all ages, and practice all facets of current dentistry, including mercury-free fillings, metal-free crowns, extractions, and causes of head and neck pain (TMJ).

Our Services

Dental Services for Your Entire Family

At Holistic Dentistry Durango we offer a variety of high-quality procedures that allow us to accommodate a wide range of patient needs. We offer everything from holistic dentistry to general dental services, such as dental cleanings and root canal therapy, to more cosmetic oriented procedures, such as Invisalign and teeth whitening.


In holistic dentistry, we can say that when we treat the patient we are not just looking at treating the mouth but the whole person.


At-home care is essential, but it’s also important to come in for professional cleanings that are more in-depth.


A preventive dental care program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and our dental team to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.


Restorative dentistry” is the term dental is the used for fixing missing or broken teeth. Fillings, crowns (“caps”), bridges and implants are common restorative treatments. Our goal is to bring back your natural smile, restores your oral health, and prevent future issues.


Root canal therapy involves one to three visits. During treatment, your general dentist or endodontist removes the affected tissue. Next, the interior of the tooth will be cleaned and sealed. Finally, the tooth is filled with a dental composite.


Why race across town to dentists you don’t know? We provide comprehensive, specialized dental care for your entire family in one familiar place.

I thought I was in for another regular dentist visit intially... I could not have been more wrong. The team at Dr. Rothchild's office are all kind, courteous professionals, and shed light on a long-standing issues with my sinuses and ability to breathe at night. Long story short, I am sleeping better, feeling better, looking better than I have in a very long time thanks to Dr. Rothchild and his team. I am forcing my family and friends to come here. 100% recommended.

I began going to Dr. Rothchild a few years ago after I was having pain. They were very professional, clean and welcoming. I will continue to be a patient and would recommend anyone to them.

My husband and I have been very happy with everyone at Dr. Rothchild’s office. From the scheduling, welcoming, cleanings, extractions (not fun but expertly performed with minimal pain), and preventative measures they provide, we have never had a negative experience. I also love that they employ more holistic approaches where possible and state of the art technology. Best of both.

Best dentistry I’ve ever experienced! Dr. Rothchild and his team are kind, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Dr. Rothchild quickly recognized the problems that were being caused by my tongue tie. I went through myofunctional therapy at his office and had it released in December. It has truly changed my life. I can’t recommend this dentist enough!

It is great to finally get a crown on my implant that fits closely enough to minimize catching food. I was never happy with the amount of food that caught between the crown and the adjoining tooth; much, much improved now. Thanks!

As a visitor from out of the area, I cannot say enough about my treatment by this professional, welcoming, attentive, and overall, in my case, going way beyond the call of duty to accommodate and care for me. Thank you for your integrity, professional competences and gentle care - regularly for my sister and niece and for me under exceptional conditions. You are a TOP team!
