Is it time to switch to a holistic dentist in Virginia?

- Holistic dentist, Dr. Olivia Hart, cares for the oral health of families in Virginia with methods that support wellness. Richmond

An increasing number of people in Virginia and across the country are gradually moving toward holistic healthcare providers. The term may automatically bring to mind chiropractic or acupuncture, but this type of practitioner can now be found in virtually every field from gynecology to dentistry. They take an integrated approach, working together to maintain the patient’s overall wellness. Finding a holistic dentist is a great place to start.

Why you might seek the services of a holistic dentist in Virginia

It is important to understand that you are not in an “either/or” position choosing between a conventional dentist and a holistic dentist. Biological dentistry is built upon the strong foundation of traditional dental training and techniques. However, it pulls in other prevention, diagnosis, and treatment techniques based in science and alternative medicine (some dating back centuries). The goal is to provide the highest level of dental care that supports whole body wellness, using the safest, most natural materials and methods.

Each person’s motivation is for switching to a holistic dentist is unique, but here are some of the reasons commonly heard by Dr. Olivia Hart at her practice, Richmond Family Dentistry:

  • I am new to the Richmond area, and I need a qualified, compassionate general dentist for my whole family.
  • I want to provide my child with the healthiest possible start in life.
  • My health seems to be spiraling downward, with one chronic condition after another. I don’t know where else to turn.
  • I am weary of taking medicines (with side effects) for relief of symptoms. I want to have the underlying cause of my health issues addressed.
  • I have pain in my head, neck, or jaw.
  • I am not comfortable with the use of harsh chemicals in or on my body.
  • I do not want mercury near my brain 24/7/365.
  • I do not want metal in my mouth.
  • I want to have silver-colored mercury amalgam fillings removed safely – for aesthetic reasons or for the potential health benefits.
  • I want to feel better and live well, and I believe that the condition of my mouth is a factor.
