Welcome, health seeker!
Hi, I’m Robyn Openshaw, and I want to share with you why I put this site, Holistic Dentist Answers, out on the Internet.
You may be very new to discovering that a lot of what happens in traditional dentistry may put our health at risk!
I’m not just talking about our oral health—I’m talking about how our overall systemic health is impacted by the procedures we allow in our mouth. The permanent procedures we allow our dentist to do.
I was in the same boat you might be, just 10 years ago. I didn’t know that my amalgam fillings, my root canals, my crowns, and even the x-rays I had gotten over the years put me at far higher risk for auto-immune disease, cancer, and even heart disease!
I didn’t realize that the tooth is an entire organ, and that it is part of important systems of the body.
I didn’t yet know that when the tooth dies, and is fossilized in the mouth through the procedure known as the root canal, it can cause serious auto-immune problems.
Nor did I know that there is an impressive groundswell going on in the dental industry. I didn’t know that I had different, better options!
Many dentists are rising up, and demanding better practices that acknowledge the dangers of amalgam fillings, and root canals, and many other procedures.
These dentists usually call themselves biological dentists.
You might call them “holistic dentists.” But there are now over 800 of them in the United States, and the movement is growing, worldwide.
Some dentists are demanding better practices--for themselves, and for their patients.
As a cohort, dentists are in fact very ill, due to their high exposure to mercury and other toxins. These dentists are insisting on providing better treatments that do no harm. Treatments that are innovative, and supportive of the patient’s overall health.
On this site, you’ll hear my own story. How I spent $50,000 in my mouth, re-doing the bad dental practices of my life to that point, and cleaning up the toxic materials that had affected my overall health.
You’ll hear the story of my own biological dentist, who became very ill from mercury poisoning, and was even considering early retirement.
Like the other 800 biological dentists trained in the U.S., my dentist began to study, seek additional training, and change the methods she used in her dental practice.
No dentist paid to be on this site. We are neutral, we are all about education, and we have accepted $0 from dental products companies or dentists.
We feature video interviews and guest blog posts by the best “biological dentists” out there, so you can learn what the risks are in traditional dentistry, and what better options might be available to you.
So, you’ve come to a good place, to learn what your options are--so that together, we can find better care for us and our children and grandchildren.
Make sure you take our quiz, “Is My Dental Work Making Me Sick?”
Grab our Holistic Dentist Finder, which is a FREE resource to help you find the biological dentist closest to you.
And you can see, at a glance, if any dentist in the Holistic Dentist Finder has simply stopped using mercury in his practice (a good first step).
Or whether he’s invested much more deeply, in the 10 different diagnostic and treatment improvements we believe the best biological dentists have purchased and trained in.
Finally, our third gift for you is 17 Questions for Your Dentist. Get the free download, so that you can ask excellent questions of your dentist and find the very best one, for you.
I am known as the “GreenSmoothieGirl” online. I’ve created this new site because--
--just like I started teaching people how to make green smoothies and increase nutrient density in their diet back in 2002, as I observed how we all struggle to eat a healthy diet--
I believe that 99 percent of us are unaware of some amazing innovations that can improve not only the health of our teeth and gums and mouth—but also decrease our overall disease risk.
So, welcome to Holistic Dentist Answers! There’s a search bar to learn more about whatever you want to learn about. You should definitely grab the 17 Questions for Your Dentist, or the Holistic Dentist Finder, which I created just for you, so you can get up to speed, fast!
See you soon!
