Holistic Dentistry in Bremerton and Bainbridge Island, WA

Family of four enjoy the holistic dentistry approach they find at Current Dental on Bainbridge Island WA.

At Current Dental, we describe our approach as “holistic dentistry” because we are open-minded to other modalities of treatment that may not always be considered in traditional dentistry.

Practicing holistic dentistry means always thinking beyond traditional views, offering suggestions best suited to each patient’s unique whole body wellness. We consider our patient’s overall health in every oral health recommendation our dental team makes.

Trauma-Sensitive Dentistry

Traditionally, mainstream dental professionals have relied on a pharmaceuticals to help treat anxious patients. The approach Dr. Waldo and Dr. Verharen use allows them to help treat patients – without drugs – who have a history of dental fear and would have been unable to sit in a dental chair.

The goal of trauma-sensitive dentistry is to not only allow our dentists to complete dental procedures a patient needs, but to also address the root of a patient’s fear as it appears.

Our dental practice has always had a core value of whole-body health. By expanding the scope of what we are responsible for chair-side, we are able to help our patients process and conquer their fear of the dentist and receive the care they need.

Digital X-Rays

Our practice uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection and effective treatment of dental problems, they also expose patients to a lower level of radiation than traditional x-rays.

Composite Dental Restorations

Saving your natural teeth in the safest way possible is important to Dr. Waldo and Dr. Verharen. That’s why they only use BPA-free and metal-free fillings. These composite dental restorations, or tooth-colored fillings, can be the ideal solution for patients who want their fillings to look natural and avoid having metal used in their dental work.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

Do you have a sensitivity or allergy to the metals commonly used by your dentist? Ask Dr.  Verharen or Dr. Waldo if a metal-free dental crown could be the right choice for you. Whether you’re looking for a more natural result from your dental crown, or if you’re concerned about the potential complications of having metals in your mouth, metal-free dental crowns can be a positive alternative to traditional dental crowns.

Holistic dentists are ones who perform dentistry that is good for the entire body, as well as the teeth and gums. If you have questions about our holistic approach to dentistry, give our Bainbridge Island or Bremerton dental office a call to schedule your appointment today!

Patient Testimonials


The talented team at Current Dental are professional, positive, and pleasant! Jim and Dr. Verharen have been my providers for the last 7 years and I can’t think of a better place to go for “over-the-top” dental care!


Ok, first time to the dentist in 15 years!!! I was super nervous and really scared but Crystal my hygienist made me feel super comfortable and talked me through EVERYTHING!!! Great staff, great people!


I had such an amazing experience! Every one in the office was extremely kind and intelligent. My dental hygienist was very educational and gentle. My dentist was also very pleasant and complementary! I look forward to my next visit!


I am so glad that my husband and I found Current Dental when we moved to Bremerton a year ago. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff and very convenient location.


I have the biggest fear of the dentist. I was putting off having to find a new one that I could trust to work with me and be tolerant of my silly phobia. They’re the best!
