Hi Andreea - I love that as a traditional medical provider you are interested in alternative healing. That is fantastic. I think dentistry has such an important part to place in health and wellness given the studies suggesting root canals and mercury fillings are very likely causes of health issues in many people. I would suggest taking a look at becoming a biological dentist. There are many examples on the internet of dentists who are practicing more holstic dentistry through this whole new field. Good luck!

I was a fellow dentist just like yourself and dentistry never seemed to do it for me and I always felt there was something more. This could come from my fascination from a young age with the mind or the fact that as you stated both dentistry and medicine seem to have a traditional pop pill approach or prescribe fluoride etc. I went on to work as a biological practice for a while and then through synchronicity and education I transitioned into working with people who suffer with Mind Body Syndrome and chronic pain as well as educating and facilitating change for people with limiting beliefs holding them back from perusing who they truly are. It's actually synchronicity that led me to this post today and reading your post is what led me to sign up just so that I could reply to it.
It's amazing that you want to integrate more into your practice and offer more to the people you treat, the question is, what is the reason behind you being a dentist? what is your highest excitement? When you can determine the reason WHY you do what you do, you can start to learn more about how to add more value. Have a think about that, and I'd be more than happy to discuss this a lot more with you if you'd like.
