What is Holistic Dentistry?
Healthy Mouth – Healthy Body
The word “holistic” is not a reflection of the practices and techniques used by a dentist, but of an overall philosophy of the role of oral care. The word itself comes from “wholistic” meaning “the whole.” Truly holistic dentists will educate their patients on the importance of overall health and how dentistry can play an important role in your overall health. As a holistic dentist, Dr. Gashinsky treats the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms.
