Book Reviews

"The author communicates the science and his methods in ways that are interesting and easy to understand...It's meant for readers who think critically about their health, for policymakers curious about the public health issues presented by the methods of many dental practitioners, and even for dentists themselves who may be unfamiliar with some of the biological dentistry concepts within. Above all, Breiner stresses the importance of informed patient consent and knowing that various treatment options exist."

FAIM recommends Whole Body Dentistry for consumers and health practitioners alike. FAIM would hope that all dentists read this enlightening book and make changes in their practices as a result. The book sheds a new light on how we all should approach dental health and the consequences that result from the use of old dental practices. As we share throughout our web site, as we move into the 21st century, we are finding that many long held believe systems regarding health care need to be revisited and looked at in a new way. Dentistry is one of the areas that need to be reassessed. Dr. Breiner presents these new insights in a substantive way with many examples, facts and references.

"... Whole Body Dentistry was a best-selling holistic dental book for many years. But this revision--double the size of the earlier edition--has so many more topics and more in-depth discussion, that it feels like a whole new book....[he has] added the weight of research published in the last decade showing even more how dental mercury in amalgam fillings in harmful....To his credit, Dr. Breiner doesn't skirt the controversies within holistic dentistry; rather, he usually shows the range of viewpoints on controversial issues such as root canal treatments and tooth implants....Whole Body Dentistry can be used as a guidebook to holistic dentistry for patients, dental students and dentists alike. It is a welcome addition to the literature."

“I had never really thought about the mouth impacting the whole body before reading this book. However once I started reading Whole-Body Dentistry by Mark A. Breiner, DDS, I started to see how much that makes sense. The idea is that instead of just focusing on oral care, fillings, and other dental work, you need to look at your total health and see if your mouth might be the cause. I found this book to be extremely informative. I have an amalgam filling and I've often wondered about the safety of it. Now I will be looking into having it removed by a dentist who knows what he is doing in this area. I also found the information on homeopathy to be very interesting and I will be looking more into that field in general for my family's health. Coverage also included a Q&A with Dr. Breiner.”

"Whole-Body Dentistry by Mark A. Breiner, DDS is a great addition to helpful material concerning dieting and eliminating toxins from the body....Dr. Breiner has been achieving success in his work over many years, and has done interviews on CBS and NBC TV, highlighting the negative affects of amalgam (mercury) fillings on the immune system as well as being at least partly responsible for many if not most chronic diseases that continue to proliferate in this age of harmful chemical pesticides and fertilizers, as well as the advent of GMOs. He also is a leading voice in the fight to eliminate fluoride in the municipal water here in Connecticut as well as across the U.S. You can learn more at his web site and sign-up for a free newsletter.”

"The vision the author outlines is of a much bigger, more fascinating and more complex reality than we have been led to believe. This should be embraced as being exciting - not threatening. And dentists need to wake up to the fact that they are potentially playing a much bigger role for good or for ill in the health of their patients than anyone could have believed possible."

It's amazing the depth of perspective you can get from a dentist. Typically people think of dentists only knowing about the mouth, but ladies and gents, Dr. Breiner is no ordinary dentist - he's a guy that gets the full picture. And it's a picture that can change your life once you have the opportunity to look at it.
