Holistic Dentistry is the diagnosing, treating and caring for the whole patient rather than just the patient’s teeth and gums. The dentist views the patient from a broad perspective; including the patient’s physical, mental/emotional, spiritual aspects and all outside influences that affect this patient. They believe and teach that your dental health is an integral part of your overall well-being and vice-a-versa.
Healthy living and balance in mind, body, and spirit are the focus, not just the teeth and gums. Diagnosis involves listening carefully to the patient, a comprehensive health examination, an open dialogue between the dentist and patient, and appropriate health testing and digital X-rays.
