A guide to healthy summer eating, from our holistic dental family to yours

As a holistic dentist, we understand you can’t have oral health without whole-body wellness. Don’t let health take a holiday during the busy summer. The season’s bounty makes it easy to enjoy lots of smile-friendly treats. Snacks that nourish the body are often good for teeth. Some foods have special properties that make them particularly good options for a healthy, attractive smile. Stock up on:

  • Proteins like nuts and cheese - Excellent buffers against decay-producing acids
  • Produce with high water content like celery, pears, melons - Rinse harmful bacteria from the mouth
  • High vitamin A and C fruits like sliced oranges, apples, and bananas - refreshing and promotes healthy gums and teeth.
  • Calcium containing foods - preserve and rebuild enamel, and stimulate bacteria-fighting saliva

If kids don’t have the following foods available, they won’t eat them:

  • Sticky candies like taffy and licorice
  • Starchy snacks such as potato chips

Both sugars and starches are hard to clear from the mouth. Harmful bacteria like to feed off them. If your kids must have sweets, opt for ice cream enjoyed quickly and not consumed over many hours, producing multiple acidic attacks on teeth. Happy and healthy snacking!

Patient Testimonials

"The procedures and treatment plan given for my situation made sense to me. I feel good about trying this plan and seeing how much can be done before considering periodontal surgery.

My thinking has always been to treat and improve the underlying problems and then seeing what remains that still is in need of surgery - rather than just jumping into doing surgery as the first step. I'm glad I found a dental practice that can do this for me without just trying to shove me down the surgery path.

I like that the best technology is being used in this office.

The ozone treatments are something I have never heard about, but I am willing to see if that helps my situation. "

Promising research into the anticancer effect of scorpion venom



Cancer is a leading cause of death globally, with solid tumors being most common. Currently, a three-pronged treatment approach is applied – surgical excision, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. However, these methods cause serious systemic side effects. Therapeutic techniques derived from natural products are gaining increasing attention around the world. New research into the anticancer effect of scorpion venom for oral cancers is showing favorable results.

More than a bright bug

Rhopalurus junceus, better known as the red or blue scorpion, is native to Cuba, Dominican Republic, and parts of Central America. Their sting is not considered dangerous, but the venom may be a breakthrough in cancer fighting.

Folk medicine has long relied on the anti-inflammatory properties of scorpion venom for treatment of cancer and other medical conditions.

Holistic dentists: “Green” year-round, not just for Earth Day

As holistic dentists, we know that mercury-free is the only way to fill cavities. Mercury-free and mercury-safe dentists are also green. A study by the Canadian Dental Association found 60 percent of mercury residue from silver amalgam fillings is released into wastewater in Ontario. Imagine the multiplier effect this has on an entire country and planet.

When we follow best practices like those established by the IAOMT, it’s healthier to our patients and is also friendly to the environment. We encourage dental approaches that reduce the profession’s environmental impact. We’re happy to contribute to the health of our patients and to leave a legacy of a better planet for future generations. Keep in mind:

  • You’ll never find mercury in our fillings. The toxin is used to bind metals in amalgams. Alternatives such as ceramics are friendly to living tissues and look like natural, healthy teeth.
  • • We safely remove amalgam fillings placed by other dentists. Using equipment such as an amalgam separator, which filters the particles from the office’s wastewater.

We’re happy to acquaint you with the ways we offer safer, healthier dentistry.
