Holistic dentistry, or as it is sometimes called Biological dentistry, attempts to relate dental conditions to the rest of the body-mind-spirit. Where conventional techniques and/or materials are considered possibly responsible for toxic reactions on some level, alternatives are offered. Cavities, infections, toxic filling materials, leaking root-canals and misalignment of the teeth can all have far-reaching effects on the physical and energy bodies.
A holistic approach to dental problems can impact other systems such as the immune system, the cranial (cranio-sacral) mechanism, acupuncture meridians and energy flow, thereby effecting structures far distant from the mouth. Properly practiced, there is also recognition of our shared spirit-nature.

THE DC DENTIST
You are much more than your mouth, teeth and jaws. You are a complex whole — body and what affects one part has effects throughout the whole. Biological and Holistic dentistry strives to make sure dental practices are health enhancing, not illness-causing. Dr. Terry Victor’s philosophy is grounded in these approaches. All restorations The DC Dentist uses are biocompatible — as well as durable, functional and aesthetic. We are mercury free, fluoride free and use digital x rays that emit 90% less radiation. We adhere to the highest standards of bio-safe dentistry: defined by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).
You’ll find the office warm and inviting and the staff, friendly, supportive and knowledgeable. Our eco-friendly environment and modern facilities let us efficiently tend to your oral health needs and lets you feel relaxed and secure. Our goal is to help you reach your health and wellness goals through optimum dental health. Visit us today at www.thedcdentist.com
