Dr. John Bain

Dr John Bain practices natural family dentistry in Farmington just a little over 3 miles from the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville. Our state-of-the-art office has many comforts including a garden view from every treatment room, paintings by his mother-  gifted artist Jo Bain, and photographs Dr Bain has done.

Our low-radiation high-detail digital x-rays give excellent information with only around 10% of the radiation of regular x-rays.

Dr Bain is at the forefront nationwide of providing Mercury-Safe dentistry. While we have been Mercury-Free since the early 1990’s, being Mercury-Safe adds immensely to the health of our patients, staff, and the environment. Quite some time ago we added several measures for safety including a mercury vapor scavenger and a mercury-amalgam separator.

(Note: The term “mercury-free” simply means not doing mercury amalgam fillings. “Mercury-Safe” means protecting against mercury vapor inhalation, mercury absorption, and mercury  ingestion plus keeping mercury out of the environment when removing mercury fillings.)
