Established in 1978, the Holistic Dental Association has been one of the strongest supporters for those dentists seeking to provide better care for their patients. Their main goal has always be to educate the public and dentists about the benefits of Holistic Dentistry.
The IAOMT is a membership organization for dental, medical and research professionals who seek to promote mercury-free dentistry, and raise the standards of scientific biocompatibility in dental practice. In 1984, thirteen dentists agreed that the amalgam issue was alarming, they also agreed that if there really was a problem with dental mercury, the evidence ought to be in the scientific literature. The Academy was formally chartered as a Canadian non-profit corporation to find answers to these questions.
The IAOMT has taken the lead in educating dentists and allied professionals in the methods of safely dealing with amalgam fillings, and safely disposing the waste. It has also led the way in developing more biocompatible approaches in other areas of dentistry, including endodontics, periodontics, and disease prevention. All this while maintaining the motto, “Show me the science!”
The IAOMT’s main activities are centered around: Research, Education, and Political Action. Contact us to find a member dentist in your area.

Founded in 1947, The Cranial Academy places the welfare of their patients above all other considerations. These physicians have rapidly gained a reputation for successfully treating a myriad of health problems which were non-responsive to standard treatment (drugs, surgery, standard therapies). Their goals are to:
- Provide an understanding and greater knowledge of the principles of osteopathy.

Functional orthodontics utilizes the muscles of chewing to promote the proper growth and development of the teeth and jaws. By the use of various dental devices, or appliances, proper tongue and jaw positions are created that eliminate negative forces on the teeth. Functional appliances are exceptionally good at aligning the upper and lower jaws in growing children. These appliances are usually made of a combination of plastic (acrylic) and wires, similar to a common retainer, but much more powerful in their effect upon the dentition.
The mission of the AAFO is to provide continuing education to general dentists, orthodontists and pediatric dentists with interests in functional appliance therapy so that they are able to treat patients with functional solutions that revolutionize orthodontic care.

Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine
(formerly known as) American Holistic Medical Association
International Assoc. of Healthcare Practitioners
The International Assoc. of Healthcare Practitioners (IAHP) is a league of healthcare professionals dedicated to the use and exploration of innovative therapies. The organization was formed to provide a united voice in the field of complementary healthcare — one that would be heard by legislative bodies, insurance regulators, the public and other healthcare providers.
American Association of Naturopathic Physicians
The past 30 years has seen an extraordinary increase in consumer demand for safe, effective and cost-effective natural healthcare. Naturopathic medicine has emerged as the health care profession best suited to meet this demand.
Although it almost disappeared in the mid-twentieth century because of the popularity of drugs and surgery, naturopathic medicine now offers safe, effective natural therapies as a vital part of the health care systems of North America the twenty-first century.
Consumers for Dental Choice (CDC) was established in 1996 by consumer advocates, mercury poisoning victims, scientists and mercury-free dentists. Our purpose is to educate the public about the health and environmental dangers of mercury fillings, and to ensure more effective government oversight on amalgam. Since the organization began, the number of amalgams placed have declined dramatically, from two-thirds of all fillings placed to one-third, and the number of mercury-free dentists has grown dramatically. But we will not be satisfied until mercury is no longer used in dentistry.
As part of its educational work, Consumers for Dental Choice wants the full flow of non-deceptive information between dentists and patients. As such, we work to end the American Dental Association’s notorious “gag rule” which tries to silence mercury-free dentists, and the ADA’s promoting mercury amalgam under the deceptive term “silver.” We favor full disclosure of the risks of mercury fillings.
Functional medicine is personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of symptoms for serious chronic disease. It is a science-based field of health care that is grounded in the following principles:
- Biochemical individuality describes the importance of individual variations in metabolic function that derive from genetic and environmental differences among individuals.
- Patient-centered medicine emphasizes “patient care” rather than “disease care.”
- Dynamic balance of internal and external factors.
- Web-like interconnections of physiological factors – an abundance of research now supports the view that the human body functions as an orchestrated network of interconnected systems, rather than individual systems functioning autonomously and without effect on each other. For example, we now know that immunological dysfunctions can promote cardiovascular disease, that dietary imbalances can cause hormonal disturbances, and that environmental exposures can precipitate neurologic syndromes such as Parkinson’s disease.
- Health as a positive vitality – not merely the absence of disease.
- Promotion of organ reserve as the means to enhance health span.
Along with providing comprehensive and up-to-date information on fluoride issues to citizens, scientists, and policymakers alike, FAN remains vigilant in monitoring government agency actions that may impact the public’s exposure to fluoride.
