Biological dentistry isn’t a new specialty in dentistry, it’s actually a philosophy that can apply to all facets of a dental practice and to health care in general. Biological dentists always seek the safest, least toxic way to accomplish the mission of treatment and all the goals of modern dentistry. You’ve heard us talk about Biomimetic dentistry before… well, say “hello” to our new friend Biological dentistry.
Why not now? I believe if you’re not growing you’re dying. After weeks, days, hours (ask my wife) of doing my own research, reading, attending conferences and various trainings I realized something. There is more to this thing called dentistry. It’s not just about the teeth. Yeah sure, it’s our focus, but it is evident, your mouth is the gateway into your entire body. Fixing issues in the mouth no doubt can have an effect on your overall well-being… and in some instances, things in the mouth can be keeping you sick!
Good question. There is quite a lot that sets me apart from other dentists. I’ll be the first to say, I came out of school a “run of the mill” dentist. Honestly, we all do. In dental school we are taught the basics, the fundamentals, of traditional dentistry. But again, “if you’re not growing, you’re dying”. Just like any profession, I have idols and mentors, and when I started to explore dentistry in other parts of the world (Switzerland, Germany, etc.) I realized there is a much higher bar being set for dentistry in other parts of the world. So, what is different about me?
I’m really glad you asked. The IAOMT website is a great resource, as is the IABDM.
If you’re more of a listener, I get that, we don’t all have time to sit down and read, so take a listen to the podcasts below on your next commute. One of my mentors, and dear friend, Dr. Stuart Nunnally will tell you all about the Biological approach.
Look, don’t just read this and think “oh yeah, I am on board”… do some research, read up, ask questions. Take charge and be an advocate for your own health, and I promise you, I will too.
