Holistic or Integrative Dentistry really means treating the whole patient rather than just the patient’s mouth or teeth. Holistic dentists take an inter-disciplinary approach to healthcare. They view the patient in totality, body, mind, and spirit. Integrative dentistry is becoming more widely accepted by other health practitioners on a global level, largely based on the fact that consumers are demanding alternatives to achieve optimum wellness. The whole-body approach to dentistry should be a part of your long-term plan for the best possible quality of life. When seeking holistic dentists, it’s best to ask the following questions (click here).
As with any other discipline, holistic dentists obtain a very thorough patient history and perform a complete dental examination of the patient to determine the best treatment possible. Holistic dentists communicate openly and clearly with patients so that the patient is playing an integral role in their health and wellness plan. Additionally, holistic dentists often consult with their patient’s other practitioners, therefore making more informed decisions about treatment best suited for the patient’s overall well-being.
There is no ‘alternative’ to living healthy and well, and while there are some in conventional medicine who are not in agreement with the innovative approaches of WHOLE-BODY DENTISTRY™, patients who benefit from the care of a holistic dentist will tell you that their quality of life has improved because of their decision to take the unconventional route.
