What is Holistic Dentistry

Understanding your airway is the gateway to your overall health 

We’re often asked, what is Holistic Dentistry? Holistic Dentistry is the area and practice of dentistry that requires a dentist to obtain additional accreditation on the study of Dental Sleep Medicine. This is the understanding that the airway and mouth play a critical role in breathing and sleep health. If one’s airway is compromised, their body cannot bring in the required oxygen necessary to function properly, which can lead to heart disease, diabetes, stoke and other diseases.

Dr. Stella O. Nnadi has not only trained to become a Dental Sleep Professional, she attained the required additional training, experience and cases to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep. 

Simply put, Holistic Dentistry just means that a central part of our dental treatment approach includes making sure your airway is developed and functioning properly, so that you have the oxygen necessary to perform all other functions of your life! That’s why our motto is “Healthy Smiles and Bodies for Life” and our mission is “To Save Lives while Creating Beautiful Smiles through Holistic Dentistry.”
