Dr. Virginia Diego is a California Board certified dentist who fell in love with dentistry at the age of 13 years old when she volunteered at a dental office where she developed a great passion for oral health and prevention. Later on in her career, she became interested in biological dentistry because she realized that the toxins in traditional dentistry, such as mercury, are very dangerous and must be removed safely. Dr. Virginia Diego is a member of the IAOMT and certified in SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique). She also holds a laser certification to perform gingival treatments, as well as laser fillings. Like the rest of our doctors, she continues to stay up to date with new technology in our field. Dr. Diego continues to volunteer at public schools in south L.A. encouraging young students to become future biological dentists.
Hi, I’m Dr. Virginia Diego and I’m a biological dentist here at Beverly Hills. We use treatment that is not toxic and we not just concentrate in the mouth, but we also concentrate on the whole body itself. We also do testing, saliva testing, to make sure that we are not putting any kind of toxic material to the patient that they might be allergic to because there are dental material out there that patients might react to.
Biological principles are very good for patients because it’s a way of helping patients heal and help them in a more non-toxic way and overcoming a dental problem that they might have developed within time. Mercury removal, I would say, is the first step in helping patients remove any toxics in their body. And that in itself is giving them a better quality of life. They come in saying, “You know, I don’t know why I’m feeling the way I’m feeling in my mouth. Am I having some kind of abscess. I don’t know, I want you to help me”. And so, when you are finally guiding them and giving them a good treatment, they are very thankful. Yeah, and that’s very… that’s something that’s very gratifying.
