Special guest speaker, Dr. Jean Nordin-Evans, DDS, IBDM, ND, from Groton Wellness will facilitate a discussion on holistic dentistry, with an emphasis on children’s dental health.
This event is free and open to the public; babes in arms are always welcome; light refreshments will be served. Feel free to share this event with your network – friends, family, and co-workers are all welcome to attend.
Proper nutrition, brushing and flossing are essential to a lifetime of wellbeing, not just for your mouth, but in relation to your whole health and wellness. Among children, visiting the dentist is a kind of rite of passion, and not always a good one, too often creating phobias and anxiety in the process. Holistic Dentistry can help make your child’s dental care as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, laying the foundation for a lifetime of good health.
Just what is “holistic dentistry”? Also referred to as biologic dentistry, The Holistic Dental Network defines the field as: “an approach to Dentistry that promotes health and wellness instead of the treatment of disease. This approach to Dentistry encompasses both modern science and knowledge drawn from the worlds great traditions on natural healing…Holistic Dentistry acknowledges and deals with the mind, body, and spirit of the patient, not just his or her ‘teeth'”.
Dr. Nordin-Evans will discuss all of this, and answer questions like:
How Old Is The Right Age To Begin Dental Care?
What to Expect on the First Visit?
How does a gentle, holistic approach make a difference?
