04 May New City, New Dentist: What to Look For in a Dental Provider
Moving into a new area can be an overwhelming experience. Unfamiliar territory can make for difficult choices as there are several options available when seeking a new dental provider. This might be the perfect opportunity to engage a holistic dentist for your dental care needs.
What differences might you discover with a holistic dentist?
One of the primary discoveries will be the concerns surrounding your overall health—not just what is going on in your mouth. Recommendations for your oral care will involve the patient rather than a unilateral decision reached without your input. You will make decisions with your dental provider based on what is best for your specific overall needs.
One major health concern involves dental amalgam. For decades the only treatment option for dental decay was to fill a cavity with standard silver amalgam. Thankfully there is another solution that is totally safe, and provides a much more aesthetically pleasing solution for dental decay repair.
Mercury free dentistry is practiced in offices throughout the world. With the realization that those old silver fillings containing mercury could become a major health hazard, the holistic dental community immediately pursued using a safer alternative.
Safe amalgam removal is certainly a topic that has provoked a lot of discussion. Our dentist is thoroughly trained so dangerous vapors and hazardous chemicals are contained and disposed of in a controlled and safe manner.
There are many ways you can locate a holistic dentist in your new city. Referrals from local family members, friends, co-workers, organization leaders from your church, your child’s school, or your local Chamber of Commerce. If these choices are not of your liking, you can research local dental providers via the internet in your new city.
Consideration should be given to location, office appearance (if it’s not clean or appears chaotic, it might be best to move on), and how well you can relate to office and dental staff. If your first choice does not meet your needs, you are not obligated, for you can continue your search until you find an office that will be compatible with your wants and needs.
It’s best not to wait until a problem occurs. Finding a new dentist under the pressure of an immediate problem might not provide the best result.
