We take a whole patient approach to your overall health.
If you’re familiar with Chinese Medicine or acupuncture, then you’ve heard about meridians, the channels through which energy flows in the body. Each organ, gland and body structure has an associated meridian, including the teeth.
The smile’s health directly affects your general well-being, making a holistic approach essential for dental care. At Morningside Dental Care, we focus on supporting your complete health with dedicated services and thorough education. It is Dr. Donna William’s goal to have every patient understand how underlying health concerns are caused by genetics, diet, and hygiene habits. Our dental team considers your general health their highest priority, providing comprehensive dentistry in Harlem to achieve wellness and improve your quality of life.
As holistic dentists, we are interested in treating the whole patient. Holistic dentists understand that the mouth is an important indicator of overall health. The presence of many diseases can first be detected in the oral cavity. Numerous cases in which diseases of the mouth where treated for a period of time, only to find out in the end that the problem involved the whole body. Likewise, the cure to ills in other parts of the body may require repairing broken down teeth, removing harmful mercury fillings, or treatment of gum disease.
When you first visit our practice, we perform a thorough examination and medical history evaluation, allowing us to understand your current oral health and prevent problems in the future. We want our patients to receive dental care that not only addresses pain and improves beauty, but also achieves long-term stability.
Ensuring the safety of all procedures and products prior to introducing them into your mouth is a major part of the treatment that holistic dentist perform. Biocompatibility testing (often using applied kinesiology) is a way to make sure that all products introduced into your mouth will cause no harm to you.
Our practice uses premium, biocompatible materials for all treatments, avoiding any harmful substances that can lead to decay or other dental problems down the road. Those who have mercury amalgam fillings can trust us to remove them properly, eliminating their negative health effects. Our body-safe treatments ensure a stronger and more natural looking smile, one that functions as it should.
Critical to the success of all the therapy you will receive is nutrition. Our office takes this quite seriously. Success of any plan necessitates an evaluation of and possible recommendations of dietary modification and supplementation as needed.
