What is a Holistic Dentist


Holistic dentists go to dental school and pass all the same tests to become dentists as regular dentists. They pass the dental boards. Holistic dentists have the same state licenses and are held to all the same standards of care. After dental school, a dentist can choose to get training at different places that teach holistic dentistry techniques. Some of these places include:

What to Expect in a Holistic Dentistry Office?


Holistic dentists have a wide range of different training experiences from one provider to another. Just like regular dentists. Some do oral surgery, orthodontics, gum procedures. The materials are often different because holistic materials typically have fewer chemicals and toxins and need to be biocompatible. Some of the different things holistic dentists do are:

  • ceramic fillings
  • safe amalgam removal
  • dental ozone infused into cavities and extraction sites
  • PRF or platelet rich fibrin
  • holistic dental implants


How do Dentists Become Holistic?


Holistic dentists go to the same dental schools as traditional dentists and get the same DDS or DMD degree. Many of them even go on to become orthodontists, gum specialists or even oral surgeons. Holistic training is in addition to regular dental school training. A good filling, still needs to be a good filling. And oral surgery still needs to be done such as pull a tooth out. But a holistic dentist will select materials that have the fewest chemicals and are very biocompatible. Holistic dentists will use ozone along with fillings, crowns and oral surgery. In this way the holistic dentistry just makes the regular dentistry better. There is nothing weird or quacky about it.


What Conditions do Holistic Dentists Treat?


Holistic dentists treat all the same conditions as conventional dentists. They just do so in a more holistic way that respects human biology.

  • cavities
  • tooth aches
  • orthodontics
  • palate expanders
  • oral surgery
  • gum procedures


How are Holistic and Biological Dentists Different?


A holistic dentist is one who believes oral health is an integral part of overall health. By understanding the connection of oral and overall health, holistic dentists become a valuable member of the medical team. Teeth are connected to other organs in the body by meridians.

In contrast, the goal of biological dentistry is to treat dental problems while working in harmony with the biology and natural function of the body. Teeth are living organs in the body and perform vital life processes.  Biologic dentistry recognizes teeth are living things. Teeth have the capacity to heal themselves. It is important to treat teeth in a way that does not harm or disrupt organic vital processes. Holistic and biological dentistry are similar and go together like birds and bees. A few examples of unique services in a biological office include ozone therapy, metal free zirconia implants, and prf platelet rich fibrin.

Dr. Adams preselects materials that are metal-free, safe and biocompatible. “Every material placed into the mouth has an impact on our biology,” says Dr. Adams…”We should select those with the smallest and safest biological impact possible.” Dr. Adams has been replacing teeth permanently with implants for 19 years. Teeth are frequently lost from decay, root canal failure, and teeth clenching issues. “No one should have to accept losing teeth…my job is to repair and replace teeth while respecting overall health and biology… and also prevent future teeth loss by diagnosing and correcting the underlying cause…”
