As with many journeys, with the recent completion of the HealThy Mouth World Summit, we find all the solutions often lead to even more questions.
And so it is with oral health.
We have always been firm believers in getting help from a dental professional who has been trained in toxin free, whole body dentistry. Truly, those of you who have had the pleasure of working with a quality dental professional know how precious an asset they can be!
The well trained dental professional can be a wonderful, trusted ally to assist us along our path to greater oral health.
Unless you were raised with a perfect diet as a child and have been blessed with stunning oral health, most of us are doing some form of ‘catch up’ when it comes to our dental health. A dentist who is functioning within the paradigm of the role that oral health plays in whole body wellness is a tremendous professional to have on your wellness team while we strive for optimal oral health.
We have compiled this list of resources to help you to identify someone who has been trained in toxin free protocols and techniques.
We also strongly urge you to question whatever professional you find, even if they are from the top of this list, to make sure that they meet your personal criteria for a professional assistant to help guide you and your family to greater oral health.
Here’s the first link to the database of dentists that are registered with the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.
When using this search tool, the designations of FIAOMT or AIAOMT are ‘higher’ rankings within the organization. All these dental professionals are at least aware of the potentially toxic impact of many dental materials. On this search function, you can also choose various options on the right side to help narrow your search. For example, if you want a dentist who uses ozone in their practice, you can select the criteria “ozone/oxygen” to help sort the dentists in this database. Here’s a link to the IAOMT ‘find a practitioner’ page.
If you are looking for a dentist who has been trained by Dr. Hal Huggins, then reach out to the Huggins Alliance to find a dentist within this excellent organization.
The Huggins Alliance does not publicize its list of members trained by Dr. Huggins. To find out more from Huggins Applied Healing, either call toll free 866-948-4638 or fill out this form and they will contact you with dental professionals near you.
The International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine is an interesting collection of not only dental professionals but also chiropractors, medical doctors and naturopathic doctors as well. The IABDM is committed to integrating body, mind, spirit and mouth in caring for the whole person.
To find a dentist who has been trained to use ozone in their practice, Dr. Julian Holmes’ site has a search feature. Not the most friendly search feature, but you’ll find plenty of dentists listed here who use ozone in their practice. Here’s the link to search for a dentist who uses ozone in their practice.
The Holistic Dental Association offers a search feature. Please always do your own research into the dental professional you choose from these lists. Just because a dentist has their practice listed in a holistic dental database doesn’t necessarily mean they will be properly trained in nontoxic protocols or practice dentistry from the perspective of the whole being. Here’s a link to the Holistic Dental Association.
Ultimately, it is each person’s responsibility to interview and question any dental/medical professional prior to consenting to any work in or on their body. So, we invite you to download our FREE Guide to Safe Dentistry, which explains what questions to ask to find a dental team who will work with you on your journey to greater oral health. The questions in this e-book will help you determine whether the dental team you’re considering has the training and mindset to assist you and your family on your path to greater oral (and whole body) health.
Also, for more great information to help you along your path to greater oral health, feel free to check out our HealThy Mouth World Summit Upgrade package.
If you know of a reputable organization that offers a ‘find a dentist’ search feature to help find dentists who would fit into the theme of this resource here, please contact us and we will review the database and consider including it in this online resource.
To your health!
