An Integrative Approach to Dentistry: Connecting Whole Body Health in the Hygiene Chair

Holistic Dentistry: Practical Approaches to Insuring Health

Seventy percent of the population of the United States chooses complementary alternative medicine (CAM) techniques when faced with needing a health care solution. The modern dental office needs a working understanding of CAM techniques available that overlap with the scope of our practice in order to be supportive of patients since this material has not been traditionally included in dental school curriculum. This course explores the research (evidenced based medicine) related to CAM for effective solutions for common dental patient concerns including: dental treatment anxiety and fear, pain management, honoring the patient’s desire to minimize chemicals, and for the treatment of head injuries. The attendee will be shown which new solutions for old problems are effective. The course will enable the dentist to hold a respectful space for honoring the treatment wishes of a patient who wants to try CAM for their care.
