Holistic and Biological Dentistry
When it comes to your dental care, you’re more than just a mouth, disconnected from body, mind, and spirit.
Holistic, biological dentistry respects the health of the mouth in its relationship to the whole person. We understand that the mouth – and whatever is done there – has wide-ranging implications. It’s connected to your body, after all, both physically and energetically via the meridian system.
So first and foremost, Dr. Bloss focuses on using only the most biocompatible and least toxic materials available. Among other things, that means no fluoride and no mercury amalgam. When teeth need to be restored, we favor BPA-free composite and ceramic materials instead.
For those with multiple chemical sensitivities – or those who simply want assurance that we use the most compatible materials for their unique biochemistry – the Clifford test is available. This blood test is the gold standard for discovering which specific dental products you may be sensitive to. It reports on more than 17,000 branded products that may be used in the course of providing dental care.
We also seek to identify any dental burdens that may be impacting overall health – not just mercury amalgam, but problems such as infected root canal teeth and jawbone cavitations (hidden infections that destroy the tissues that support your teeth).
“Education has for its object the formation of character.”
As a holistic dentist, Dr. Bloss takes a conservative approach, favoring prevention over treatment. When problems arise, she looks to the least invasive options for restoring dental health in a way that supports whole body health.
In this way, the biological dentist truly becomes an integral part of your overall health and wellness team.
Consequently, Dr. Bloss is a perpetual student, investing a tremendous amount of time to keep up with the latest advances in both modern clinical dentistry and traditional and natural healing methods. She is SMART-certified in the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings and an accredited member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).
