Find The Best Dentist - Holistic Or Biological
Here you will find links to some of the best dentists in the country. You will also find resources for healing cranial dental issues as well as body health imbalances that can contribute to tooth decay.
While a significant portion of the population can heal their teeth without dental treatments, this does not mean you should avoid seeing a dentist. There are many situations where a dentist is helpful. If you need to see a dentist, I recommend seeing a biological or holistic dentist because in general they use x-rays and other procedures that are less toxic than those used by conventional dentists.
Ramiel Nagel, Author of Cure Tooth Decay, Dental Referral Disclaimer and Warning
DISCLAIMER!!! While many excellent dentists are listed on this web page and can be referred from here from the dental lists, many do not provide nutritional support for dental decay. Furthermore my personal opinion is that I neither encourage nor recommend: mercury fillings, mercury filling removal, root canals or root canal removal, tooth crowns or removal, dental fillings, tooth extractions, any form of bite altering devices, braces, dental sealants, head gear, fluoride or any chemical treatment. That does not mean that some of these treatments are incorrect for your situation, but rather be wary of being "sold" treatments that you are not sure of. Furthermore, the dentist should do blood tests, muscle tests, or cranial tests to determine whether the materials and treatments used are compatible with your body.
That said, my wish in providing this list is to help you find dentists who will support your overall health and well being.

International Academy of Biological Dentistry & Medicine - More conscious dentistry.
Organic Consumers Association - Has many listings for holistic dentists.
International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology - Focus is on less toxic, more compatible and mercury free dentistry as well as mercury removal.
Dr. Hal Huggins trained Dentists - Specializes in careful mercury filling removals, and blood tests for new filling material compatibility. The best way is to call 1-866-948-4638. These dentists will likely recommend all root canals to be removed; I am not certain that this recommendation is the best for everyone.
