Whole-Body Dentistry®: A Complete Guide to Understanding the Impact of Dentistry on Total Health by Mark A. Breiner, DDS

FAIM recommends Whole Body Dentistry for consumers and health practitioners alike. FAIM would hope that all dentists read this enlightening book and make changes in their practices as a result. The book sheds a new light on how we all should approach dental health and the consequences that result from the use of old dental practices. As we share throughout our web site, as we move into the 21st century, we are finding that many long held believe systems regarding health care need to be revisited and looked at in a new way. Dentistry is one of the areas that need to be reassessed. Dr. Breiner presents these new insights in a substantive way with many examples, facts and references.

Whole-Body Dentistry® represents a shift away from the traditional "mouth-only" orientation of dentistry, which is focused on oral hygiene, fillings, and extractions. This revolutionary view of dentistry recognizes that issues in the mouth can trigger seemingly unrelated physical illnesses.

Understanding the concepts in this comprehensive guide and reference will help patients make better and more informed dental-treatment choices in order to achieve a higher level of health.
