Why Functional Dentistry?

Why did one dentist choose functional dentistry? Perhaps, functional medicine chose the dentist. While many of my pre-dental classmates majored in chemistry, math, and physics, I studied kinesiology, the study of muscle movement. Throughout my career, I have been blessed to study with some of the leaders and greatest minds in organized dentistry, but I intuitively realized there was a better way to achieve health. The last mercury amalgam filling I placed was while still in the United States Air Force twenty-three years ago. I realized that there were alternatives to fluoride. Gradually, I realized that the decline our culture's decline in health, despite advances in medicine, was due in part to western medicines' lack of understanding of the complexities of how the mind, body, and spirit integrate. We were too quick to prescribe antibiotics and narcotic pain medications rather than treat the cause of the disease. The body is designed to cure itself under the correct circumstances. Functional medicine seeks to answer the question, “Why are we ill”? Biological-based dentistry focuses on the root causes of disease and we develop an individualized treatment plan to address our patient's needs.
