What Does It Mean?

holisticHolistic dentistry is the practice of diagnosing, preventing, treating, and maintaining oral health using natural therapies. A biological dentist assesses a patient’s entire state of physical and emotional health before deciding on treatments.

Like traditional dentists, Biological (or Holistic) dentists have a DDS or DMD degree.  The biggest differences between a Biological dentist and a traditional dentist are:

  • Biological | Holistic dentists look for the root causes in diet, lifestyle, or pre-exisiting conditions that may affect healing and prevention.
  • Biological | Holistic dentists use organic, natural, and biocompatible materials that are non-toxic and safe for human consumption.
  • Biological | Holistic dentists are concerned with the whole body effects of all dental materials, techniques and procedures.
