At Susquehanna Dental Arts, we believe that health and wellbeing start in your mouth. That is why we provide quality dental services that avoid and eliminate (through safe removal) the toxins commonly used in dental materials. A holistic dentist works to advance wholeness and in so doing prevent health issues that are associated with poor dental health such as mercury poisoning, fluoride poisoning, heart disease, diabetes, and many others. Holistic Dentistry also means that we see the care of our patients as a long-term commitment, with emphasis on the effects of proper dental hygiene in between visits.
Our holistic dentistry team partners with two progressive dental organizations: The Centers for Dental Medicine and the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology.
The Centers for Dental Medicine has created a new standard of care for preventative medicine as the bridge between dentistry and medicine. They believe that dentistry is a lot more than just beautiful smiles. Dentistry is important to your health. This is especially true for patients that are at increased risk of a heart attack, diabetes or are pregnant. Dentists can no longer be concerned with just the health of one’s teeth; the health of the entire body is reflected by and affected by the health of teeth, gums, and the mouth. This comprehensive approach to your health is why we tend to characterize ourselves as a provider of holistic dental care.
The IAOMT is a network of dental, medical and research professionals who seek to raise the standards of scientific biocompatibility in the dental practice with information from the latest interdisciplinary research. In short, IAOMT seeks to educate professionals and the public about the risks of mercury in dentistry, and suggest alternative methods and materials.
The fundamental mission of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology is to promote the health of the public at large.
Essentially, the Academy shall continually examine and compile scientific research relating to the biocompatibility or oral/dental materials. This agenda should ensure a more informed use of these materials in clinical practice. Within these confines, the Academy shall:
- Accumulate and disseminate SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION;
- Promote RELEVANT RESEARCH and EDUCATION;
- Promote FUNDING for relevant research;
- Promote EDUCATION of the public, professional organizations, and other groups, by providing SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION;
- Promote NON-INVASIVE SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND therapies;
- Provide ADVISORY SERVICES if/when required.
