How To Find A Good Biological Dentist: 10 Questions To Ask
Why should you find a biological dentist, and how will you know if you’ve found a good one? Your traditional dentist can’t tell you that some regular dental treatments like root canals and amalgam fillings are linked to chronic illness, but a biological dentist will avoid using these and other toxic practices to heal your teeth.
What is a biological dentist?
A biological dentist (also called a “natural” or “holistic” or “functional” dentist) is a type of dentist who treats dental problems as part of a person’s overall health.
They look for the root causes of why something is going wrong in your mouth, studying far beyond what was taught in dental school. They dare to be different, looking for ways to serve you that don’t also harm you over time.
They’re high-integrity dentists who’ve done deeper research that your typical dentist has, refusing to give you standard treatments they know puts your long term health at risk, or at least offering you alternatives and educating you about them….and they’ve had to invest in different, expensive equipment and get extra training.
And they do it because they care about their patients, and they’re the kind of people who dig deep and aren’t afraid to question authority, and take the road less traveled.
Many of the biological dentists are also motivated by the fact that THEY have gotten sick, due to exposure to mercury and other toxins in their dental practice. Did you know that dentists are among the sickest professions in North America?
(Hairdressers and farmers are close behind, likely due to their exposure to toxic chemicals as well.)
Is Your Dental Work Making You Sick?
The health of your teeth and gums, and the choices you make in your dental care, has everything to do with your overall health!
I learned this the hard way. I ate sugar for the first 30 years of my life, and I had a bunch of metal fillings, and I even had a few root canals. I did not know any better, and it led to a lot of suffering and an eventual investment of nearly $50,000 to fix issues in my mouth that were leading to symptoms in my body.
Because guess what: you can’t expect ANY dentist to tell you about the ways mercury in your teeth can harm your overall health, or even that for the sake of your health, you should have your mercury fillings removed—they can literally lose their license for telling you that.
They’ll even get in trouble if they tell you WHY almost every time a woman has cancer in her left breast, she also has a root canal in her tooth that lines up on that left-side biomeridian of the body. There’s a lot of data about how dangerous current dental practices are, but…most dentists really don’t want to know.
This makes it SUPER important for you to educate yourself, which is what I want to do here today. I want to give you information that 99% of Americans don’t know. I want you to know what you can do about it, if you’ve had metal fillings, or root canals, or your dentist is using x-rays and other practices that can cause harm to your health.
Now, I’m not a dentist. And that is precisely why I can speak boldly. No one can take away my license, because…I don’t have one. I’m able to research to the bottom of an issue and then…tell you the truth.
I’m going to make it REALLY easy for you to use my research, to make some easy changes in your own dental care, with a gift I’ve been working on for you.
How to find a good biological dentist: 10 questions to ask
Finding a really good holistic or “biological” dentist has been such a blessing to me, and so powerful in helping me learn about how to keep what happened in my mouth from destroying my overall health.
Now, just because a dentist identifies as “biological” doesn’t mean she’s GOOD. So, since I came by my hard-won knowledge only after going through a few dentists AND spending $50k in my mouth…recently, I got together with my own really amazing bio dentist, the one I’ll have for life: Dr. Michelle Jorgenson. We’ve put together a really great present for you.
I asked her, what are the critically important diagnostics, or tests—and treatments—that you expect any really good bio dentist to have and be very skilled at?
And, how can I help people choose the biological dentist in their area who is the very best?
And then, once I got to the bottom of those answers from Dr. Jorgenson, we created a list of 10 questions you should ask any dentist who identifies as “bio” or “holistic” or “functional” in the way they practice dentistry.
- Are you mercury SAFE or mercury FREE in your office?
- What are your procedures for removing mercury fillings?
- What alternatives to root canals do you offer?
- Do you avoid the use of fluoride?
- Do you use digital x-rays instead of film?
- Do you offer alternatives to metal implants?
- Do you offer ozone treatments?
- Do you have a CT scanner for checking out the health of my root canal teeth, or to see if my jawbone is strong enough for an implant?
- Does your office offer alternatives to antibiotics or nontoxic alternatives to pain medication?
- Does your office offer alternatives to drill-based cavity treatment?
Okay, you can go google and call the bio dentists in your area, and start asking them all those questions I just told you. But guess what…we already did.
Grab the free Insider’s Guide to Holistic Dentists I’ve made you, and you’ll see at a glance what services these dentists provide, and what they don’t. Some bio dentists have only 1 or 2 of those 10 special abilities or technologies or services. Not all holistic dentists are the same!
(If you have a really great biological dentist we missed, leave a comment and we’ll get their info in our resource as soon as possible.)
We didn’t offer anything or charge these bio dentists any fees to be in this resource, because it’s isn’t advertisement. We’re not interested in being a marketing resource for dentists! We’re about YOU, educating YOU to take control of your health.
