I have had dental problems for many years, and am now following the regime in your book
which I find a very refreshing outlook on dentistry. How do I find a dentist who is
sympathetic to your principles, and will only
do work on my teeth that is essential?
I live on the south coast of England, UK.
This is a good question and I am happy to explain how I try to find a dentist here in the US, when people ask me this.
Usually I start by looking for someone who is a member of AAOSH (www.AAOSH.org).
I view these dentists as pioneer types who care a lot about their patients and are motivated to be a member of an organization that at present offers no financial incentive to them.
Next I search the Oral DNA testing site ( www.OralDNA.com ) and finally the Veloscope site ( for similar reasons).
I know this is not really scientific so I then follow up with a personal email or telephone conversation with everyone on the short list.
This is the best question – since a keen interest is what I am looking for – and a half-hearted response won’t do!
I am happy to investigate in your area of the UK if you can give me a few more specifics about how far you could travel etc – general area of interest etc.
