At Van Horne Dental in Victoria Park, our dentist Dr. Nelly Himell practices holistic dentistry by recognizing the link between oral health and systemic health.
The Oral-Systemic Health Connection
At Van Horne Dental, our dentist Dr. Himell, takes a holistic approach to practicing dentistry. She recognizes that your oral health affects your overall health.
In the body – everything is connected. Before treating your mouth, she will take a step back and look at what is happening within the rest of your body. She will talk about your physiology, biochemistry, and lifestyle, all with the goal of identifying the connections between your mind, body, and smile.
What does a holistic approach to dentistry mean?
We’ll do our best to identify the causes of your dental problems, often by collaborating with your other healthcare practitioners (for instance, physicians, naturopaths, chiropractors or nutritionists) to focus on your overall health and healing.
Sometimes, this consultation with your other health care professionals can go a long way in helping to ensure that we provide you the most appropriate dental care because it means that none of your treatments will be duplicated, or interfere with one another.
We’ll talk about all your options, from prevention through to full reconstruction, and develop a plan to suit your unique needs.
