If you've been following Wonder on social media or getting our newsletters, you are likely aware that a holistic dentist for your kids is the way to go!
They help get to the root cause of cavities and gum disease rather than just treat the symptoms. This gives us a better advantage with our whole body health. We want to maximize our preventative health for us, but especially our kids!
Although holistic dentistry may be ideal, it isn't always simple to find. Here are a few tips for finding a great holistically minded dentist for you and your family…
- Use the words “holistic,” “biological,” or “functional” dentist in your online search
- Search the Holistic Dental Association for dentists who are members
- Go to www.askthedentist.com and search the database for dentists
- Call dentists and ask if they have a CBCT (cone beam computed tomography). As funny as this sounds, many dentists who have this machine are often focused on entire body health and understand how the entire body is connected to the mouth.
In the end, try to find someone that you and your kids feel good about. It's important to feel safe and comfortable with any professional that you work with. We always recommend doing your research and making the best decision for you and your family!
