"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

At Health Centered Dentistry we practice
what we refer to as
"Whole Person Dentistry."
an approach to dentistry that promotes health and wellness instead of only treating "dis"ease.

COULD YOUR TEETH BE CAUSING YOU ILL HEALTH? As a Biological Dentist I believe the conditions present in a patient's mouth are a reflection of their overall health. In accordance with ancient Chinese medicine, the mouth is a reflection of the person's total health. Ancient Chinese physicians would examine the patient's teeth, gums, tongue and oral cavity before they examined the rest of patient's body. In biological dentistry, we stress the use of non-toxic restorative materials for dental work and focus on the unrecognized impact that dental toxins, dead teeth and hidden dental infections can have on the patient's overall health. I believe tooth decay, periodontal disease, materials used in restorations, root canaled teeth and infected past extraction sites are all factors that may affect a patient's health. A condition in one part of a patient's body may be the cause of a health issue located in another part of the patient's body. This condition is called Focal Infection Theory. We see Focal Infection Theory when patients are suffering from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, thyroid dysfunction, infertility, kidney dysfunction, breathing problems, cancer, digestive complications, joint pain and limited joint motion just to mention a few. This is not to say that the patient became ill as a result of their mouth problem(s) but that it may be a contributing factor.*

Whole Person Dentistry observes and deals with the mind, body, and spirit of the patient, not just his or her “Teeth.”  This approach to dentistry encompasses both modern science and knowledge drawn from the world’s great traditions in natural healing.

The basic principles of a Whole Person based practice are:

Earliest Possible Prevention and Treatment of Dental Malocclusion
(bite problems = physical imbalance)
Avoidance and Elimination of Toxins From Dental Materials
Establishing proper TMJ function, including correct Cranial Balance
of the Head, Neck, and Jaws
Proper Nutrition for the Prevention and Reversal of
Degenerative Dental Disease

For each patient, Whole Person Dentistry is a different journey down the same road.  Because every person is unique, and their history is unique, it follows that their treatment will also be unique.

For the Dentist, Whole Person Dentistry can be much like a good mystery or puzzle, waiting to be investigated, have the pieces put together, and solved.

Whole Person Dentistry can be a part of each person’s journey to improved health.  For some patients this type of care is more vital than for others.  It is, however, very important that everyone be aware of the dangers of inappropriate or improper dental care.

Though modern American dentistry has progressed far from its origins of using wooden teeth, there are still some areas where it lags behind the rest of the medical world.  Integrated Health Care, treating the person as a whole instead of a collection of symptoms and diseases, is critical to our well-being,  Because modern American dentistry mainly treats the symptoms of a patient, it can miss the body-wide effects dentistry can have.
