I have a website that has very little html information content and loads most of its data from a SQL database. Is this approach bad for SEO?

No, a higher text to html ratio is actually better than lots of html and very little text

Typically your sql database is accessed by your server side code or a webservice.  When this is done server side, it is all done before the page even loads.  Your serverside code generates the html.  For the end user, they just see the output.

What is important is having a lot of content that is updated on a regular basis.  By using sql database, you can create  your own cms and make it easier for yourself or another person to generate content for you.  Or you can use one of the other cms sites like wordpress and display your sql content programatically.

The take away is lots of content that is unique and updated on a regular basis.
