Lakewood patient asks, “Which dentist is practicing holistic dentistry?”
As medical research continues to identify the intricate relationship between physical health and oral health, holistic dentistry has grown in popularity. Holistic dentistry is an approach that seeks to treat the patient’s whole body health. A significant link has been established between oral health status and many chronic or serious health conditions, including:
- Diabetes and high blood sugar
- Heart disease, high blood pressure, and heart attack
- Rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune disease
- Cognitive impairment
- Infection and inflammation
When looking for a dental practice that offers holistic dentistry, patients may wish to consider several factors, such as:
- What are the qualifications and holistic experience of the dentist?
- Is a complete range of dental care available?
- What do current patients say about the care they receive?
At South Lakewood Dental, serving families from Lakewood and Wheat Ridge, CO, Dr. Scott Stewart is a Doctor of Dental Surgery who has been practicing advanced dentistry since 1982. After several years in practice, Dr. Stewart continued to expand his education and specialties to incorporate holistic and biological dentistry in order to help our patients achieve optimal oral and physical health. With the holistic approach of identifying underlying or subsequent health concerns and treating the “whole person,” he also embraced biological dentistry, which uses only the safest biocompatible materials and techniques to avoid potential adverse reactions in the future. Our practice is mercury-free and offers minimally invasive and safe alternatives to some conventional dental treatments.
After extensive continuing education and training, Dr. Stewart achieved board certification as a Naturopathic Physician and he is one of several leading dentists in the nation who co-authored a best-selling book about the technological evolution in dental treatment.
In addition to providing a comprehensive array of biological family, holistic, reconstructive, and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Stewart and our team are committed to offering our patients the latest technologies, including laser dentistry. Our laser treatments are less invasive than conventional surgical procedures, and help patients to heal faster and healthier with less discomfort or recovery time.
