Holistic

Twenty First Century Dentistry – a Holistic Approach

Dentistry over the past years has greatly evolved. Not only is it about caring for your teeth using state of the art technology and procedures, it is also about treating teeth and at the same time seeing how teeth can affect the whole body.  Holistic dentists now treat patients in a less toxic, more individualised and in a environmentally friendly way.
