Is Holistic Dentistry Right for Me?

Currently a hot topic of debate among dental and health professionals, holistic dentistry has gained popularity in recent years, alongside the movement toward naturopathic medicine. Dr. Audrey at Proud to Serve Family Dentistry wants Norman residents to understand the differences between the two approaches to dentistry, in order to make the most informed decision when choosing a dental health professional.

What is Holistic Dentistry?

Holistic dentistry is an approach to dental care that focuses on promoting overall health and wellness, rather than the treatment of specific disease. This practice places dental problems in the context of health issues elsewhere in the body, analyzing the patient’s entire physical, emotional, and even spiritual health. Holistic dentistry is heavily focused on the importance of the body’s chemical balance, and discredits traditional dental professionals and procedures for disrupting this balance through the use of mercury fillings, root canals, and fluoride. These are a few distinct differences in practice and treatment of dental health issues you should be aware of before deciding if a traditional or holistic approach is right for you.

How do I know if Holistic Dentistry is right for me?

Because the differences are largely philosophical, or grounded in personal beliefs, it is important that you do your research before deciding on a dental health professional. A second, even third opinion is always helpful when making important decisions regarding your health.

That’s why Dr. Audrey at Proud to Serve Family Dentistry is here to answer any questions you might have about traditional versus holistic dentistry, and which option is best for your needs. Whether you chose a traditional or holistic approach to dentistry, know that Dr. Audrey always recommends regular checkups every 6 months, regular brushing and flossing at least twice a day, a balanced diet, and regular exercise to maintain the healthiest you possible. If you have any questions, or to schedule an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact us or stop by our Norman office today.

I highly recommend Dr. Audrey! I've had to have 3 amalgam fillings and a root canal tooth removed in the last few months. I chose her because she's SMART certified with the IAOMT, she's a holistic dentist and her great reviews. Her office is clean and the staff is super friendly. I've seen my health improve since having the amalgams removed - the numbing/tingling in my face is almost completely gone and now I'm able to continue with my heavy metal detox safely!

Dr. Audrey is great! After taking my kids to several other dentists who were horrible, it is so nice to go to a dentist I can trust. She is open to more natural health choices, which is a huge plus. Also, she doesn't push unnecessary procedures just to make more money, like most other dentists. Having a trust-worthy dentist is so valuable, especially when you are dealing with dental issues. The staff and hygienists are also very friendly and do great work. I highly recommend them!

Dr. May-Jones Is an excellent dentist. During my most recent appointment she was breaking in a new assistant and not only was her work great but she was kind and patient to her staff. I have seen the other side of that coin and, especially in today’s environment, I appreciate her attitude along with her work.
