My personal experience has included decades of dental procedures and dentists harming my dental health.

This blog may help you make better choices and decisions to prevent painful dental issues by sharing 189 brilliant A – Z dental destiny strategies and suggestions to help with your dental health and longevity.

Researching holistic health and holistic dental health has become an obsession for me to make the best decisions for my health and longevity. The research is one of the toughest parts and it takes a major investment of time to find the references and resources you can trust. Once you gain the education and information it is time to start looking for a holistic dentist that is compatible, convenient, and trustworthy.

I was lucky to find Dr. Dawn Ewing first to help with some dental diagnostic testing first and this led me to my new holistic dentist Dr. Katie To DDS in Katy, Texas. She has a great team and we are making great progress to resolve many of my dental issues.

It has been a very difficult process and I have endured quite a bit of downtime and pain to fix issues that resulted from my former dentists were following the American Dental Association (ADA) and Insurance company outdated policies and procedures. Decades of neglect and substandard care failed me and resulted in a series of cascading and compounding dental health issues.

This education and information can save you a lot of money, pain, and suffering. The majority of people have gum and teeth problems impacting their health. Dental health problems are affecting people of all ages and only seem to get worse as we age robbing us of our happiness, health, and wealth. Dental work can cost tens of thousands of dollars and not having good dental health can lead to serious mental and physical health issues.
