Your oral health is one of many biological systems in your body that, though performing separate functions, link with one another to keep the body functioning properly. When one of these systems suffers from disease, high toxin levels, or injury, it can manifest within other systems. Promoting a healthy balance within the body is an important step in maintaining total body health.

Dr. Glenn A. MacFarlane, DMD and our team are proud to provide dental care that acknowledges and promotes the link between oral and systemic health. We go beyond caring for just your smile, providing treatments and products that are free of toxins and are compatible with your body’s unique immune response. Our mission is to make our patients aware of the relationship between their smile and their total health and how they can enjoy a greater quality of life through proper holistic care and oral/systemic therapy.

Oral/systemic therapy focuses on addressing dental conditions such as periodontal disease and tooth decay that can have adverse effects within other biological systems. Poor oral health has been proven to trigger and worsen other health conditions, and vice versa.

If you have any questions about the importance of oral/systemic therapy in Red Bank, New Jersey, please feel free to contact The Center for Holistic Dental Medicine at 732-530-4020 and schedule a time to meet with our dentist. We look forward to helping you gain a better understanding of the relationship between your oral health and quality of living.
