Located in Santa Barbara, California, Dr. Copeland offers alternative methods of dental treatment, using science based holistic approaches to a mixture of modern and traditional dentistry. Well-being is the primary focus. The oral cavity is placed in its perspective as part of the whole person. The greatest care is taken to use natural products, biocompatible materials, and sound diagnostic skills for the careful treatment of each individual.

The body must be sound, the immune system healthy, for dental treatment (like all medical treatment) to be successful. Referrals to and from like-minded healers in the alternative and traditional physician spheres are used to enhance treatment, providing the opportunity for the best possible outcome. Education is an important aspect of the practice, and time is taken to provide sources for further learning, and understanding.

A native of Idaho, Dr. Copeland received her Bachelor’s of Science in Biology at the University of Southern Colorado, and her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Washington, Seattle in 1994. Dr. Copeland was invited back as faculty, but declined due to a residency obligation at UMN. She attended an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul.

Here she immersed herself in the six recognized specialties of dentistry. “I really felt I would want to practice in a rural area, and felt the obligation to expand my skills in areas where the nearest specialist might be hours away”. During this time, she practiced hospital dentistry, in addition to her resident clinical practice. She was one of two residents selected each year to practice at a satellite clinic in Minneapolis. She felt she wanted to move west though, and settled on the Oregon Coast, where she practiced what she refers to as “enlightened rural dentistry”. Here she became Mercury free.

Cynthia eventually settled in Santa Barbara in 2004, where she now lives with her two beautiful daughters. Dr. Copeland has completed the two-year Gnathology and Occlusion Course with Dr's. Tom Basta and Jeff Brucia at the Foundation for Advanced Continuing Education (FACE), in the Bay Area. Since then, “I’ve had the opportunity to study with Dr. Hal Huggins, Dr’s Phillip Mollica and Robert Harris, in addition to immersing myself into a form of practice that satisfied my sense of life affirming, non-damaging, patient driven, doctor as teacher sense of self. I had for so long repeated traditional dental dictums, without conviction. This was especially true, while in the scope of practice one performs above the standard of care, and feels that there must be better alternative.”

“I learned that I wasn’t alone, that there were lots of ‘nuts and kooks’, as traditional dentists often refer to us, out there. They were from all over the US and the elite of International practitioners, from European countries who had ‘already’ got IT.”

“There are wonderful like-minded practitioners to collaborate with in Santa Barbara: Naturopaths, Physicians. Acupuncture/ Acupressure, Lymphatic, Nutritional, Neurological, and Toxicity specialists are all helpful to the dental patient seeking health. I feel honored to work with them and have their expertise when working with a complex patient.”
