Holistic Dentistry is a contemporary approach to dental treatment, examining the patient’s overall health and wellbeing – not just their teeth! A Holistic Dentist recognises the profound connection between the mouth and the other parts of the body. As such the Holistic approach is a conscious one, the aim is to understand how treatments of the teeth, mouth and jaw can affect the individual’s overall health as well as recognising that the mouth can reflect certain conditions and identify potential risk factors for the development of other health conditions. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, describes a holistic dental practitioner as one who “believes that treatment of individual conditions takes place only by reference to the whole.”

The term “Biological Dentistry” is often used interchangeably with “Holistic dentistry”. Biological Dentistry advocates for a safer delivery of modern dental health care, and also a reduction in negative environmental impacts from the dental sector.

There is a strong emphasis on scientific research to support the protocols and position of Biological Dentists.
The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) is the leader in science based Biological Dentistry. The IAOMT is “A trusted academy of allied professionals, providing scientific resources to support new levels of integrity and safety in healthcare.”

Holistic Dentistry at 2nRICH
Dental treatments should be health enhancing rather than health stressors. There is equal attention given to cosmetic considerations by creating attractive smiles in conjunction with optimal biomechanics of the neuromusculoskeletal systems, focusing on selecting biocompatible materials that will be left implanted in your teeth and body for many years to come.

Dentists at Laser + Holistic Dental enjoy working with medical and health practitioners in providing integrated health management for their patients whether they have been diagnosed with metal allergy, heavy metal toxicity or sleep disordered breathing. Having this interdisciplinary team approach contributes to improved health outcomes.
