A new kind of dentistry— based on an understanding that what happens in your mouth impacts your whole body— makes going to the dentist less invasive, less stressful and more conducive to your long-term wellbeing.
In the book THE GOOD DENTIST, Dr. Alireza Panahpour, DDS teams up with wellness writer Camilla Griggers, PhD, mixing personal anecdote, case stories, education and resources to give you the tools you need to find a good dentist for yourself and your family, and to recognize good dentistry when you see it.
"The Good Dentist is a wake up call to the importance of the mouth-body connection. This book is valuable to any health practitioner trying to understand the importance of referring your patients to a dentist with good practices (mercury free, minimally invasive, etc.). Equally important, this book is a must for everyone who wants to bring their health back to an optimum level. "− Vaidya Ashlesha Raut, M.D. in Ayurveda (India), NC, HHP,RAS, BCIM, Chair, Council for Ayurveda Credentialing, Founder, Ayurveda for Healing
