Are Holistic Dentists Quacks?

I recently read an artilce that said holistic dentists were quacks. Is that true?

Laura,

Just as in every profession there are those who are legitimate and those who aren’t. The same is true of  holistic dentist.  While some   will try to push expensive and unnecessary homeopathics, that is not the case with most.

Generally, a holistic dentist is one who will avoid putting anything that contains toxic material into your body. Not a bad idea, if you ask me.

A holistic dentist will generally  only do mercury free fillings. They’ll also offer sanitary amalgam removal.  Those are both legitimate and good things.  I hope this helps.
