Recently I found this free holistic dentistry course online. I'll bring the videos he shares with me over to share with you (with his permission) as they are released. This is good information!
(Until I get the next video in the series, here is some information regarding Holistic Dentistry...https://www.drweil.com/health-wellness/balanced-living/wellness-therapies/holistic-biological-dentistry/
"How is holistic dentistry different from traditional dentistry?
Dentists who practice holistically look at the whole body, not just the teeth and gums. They may advise and offer programs on preventative care that goes beyond practicing good oral hygiene to emphasize better nutrition, smoking cessation, and moderate alcohol consumption for their patients who consume alcoholic beverages.
Views among holistic dentists may differ. For example, some may be against using fluoride because they believe it does not prevent tooth decay and poses long-term health problems such as increased risk of cancer and degenerative bone diseases. On a more political level, they may be against fluoridation of the water supply, viewing it as government forcing medication on the public.
Many holistic dentists are against performing root canals. They believe that the use of chemicals in sterilizing agents, in addition to bacteria becoming trapped in the canal as a result of the procedure, can cause long-term health effects.
Holistic dentists will not use amalgam, nickel, or other metals to fill cavities. Instead, they will use composite resin, a practice that has also become common among dentists who do not describe themselves as holistic. They may also encourage patients to let them remove existing amalgam fillings and replace them with healthier materials.
The use of digital X-ray equipment, which exposes the patient to substantially less radiation, is also part of holistic dentistry. Some conventional dentists are also using this type of equipment to minimize radiation exposure." Dr. Andrew Weil -

The first thing we need to go over is what is important and what is NOT.
Dentistry doesn't need to be complex with tons of big Latin words.
Let's make it simple.

Crowns! Are they Safe? - Video #3 of 18
Crowns are so common in dentistry.
Almost everyone you know has at least one and you might even have some yourself.
But are they really a good restoration?
