When you come to see us at All About Smiles, you know that we care deeply about helping you have a healthy smile complete with strong teeth and gums. We want to make sure every treatment we provide is working to your advantage for optimal oral health. But there’s one more step we care about because we care for you on a deeper level than most dentists will. Being a biological and holistic family dentist in Wilmington means we care for your overall health too.
Google the term “holistic” and you’ll generally find that it’s characterized to mean something like “the treatment of a person as a whole, taking into account social and mental factors, rather than simply treating symptoms of an illness or a disease.” This means we don’t bring you into All About Smiles and fill your cavity and send you on your way. We want to look at the big picture and discover why things are happening in your mouth and elsewhere in your body. We’re very aware that every treatment we provide you and your family affects the rest of your body too and how it might also affect you in the future.
We believe that your mouth and your body have an intrinsic connection to one another that cannot be denied. That’s why our office is equipped with special, state-of-the-art equipment and tools for treatments with materials that pose as low a risk as possible to all of our patients.
Just like regular dentists, your Wilmington biological and holistic dentist must complete four years of dental school. We also have to maintain a high level of continuing education to keep our license to practice dentistry. Every dentist cares deeply about their patients and their oral health. However, biological and holistic dentists take it one step further, understanding that your oral health and overall health are not separate entities. We tend to have a more personal approach to how we care for patients, getting to know you, your needs, and how your body functions. There’s more time invested on our part.
If you’re interested in learning more about how biological and holistic dentistry can help you, then it’s time you talked to the team at All About Smiles in Wilmington. We’re here to help and want you to always be informed. Please don’t hesitate to contact us!
It all adds up to better health, smile, body, and spirit!
