Today I listened to the three speakers and learned quite a bit. I've been posting some of the things that were interesting to me on my Facebook page. I really like Dr. Cate Shanahan, she shared her scientific based argument against flossing. Basically she was saying that you could be moving bacteria from one area of your mouth to another and stressed that you should not ram down the floss, and should use a different area for each tooth area. Dr. Mike Godfrey talked about the connection between cancer (particularly breast cancer) and oral health. Dr. Paul Rubin's talk was entitled “Is Your Dentist Mercury Safe”. I feel good knowing that the holistic dentist I've chosen seems to meet the criteria.
Listening to all this makes me very grateful that my children do not have amalgam fillings. My youngest son has only had one cavity and as a young child he was insistent on not having “that ugly silver stuff” in his mouth. Thank goodness as his cheapskate mother would have just had him get an amalgam had he not fussed so over it. My oldest has not had cavities.
By the way, I missed the first five days of this summit and there is an option to “upgrade” which will allow me to purchase all the materials and be able to review the previous days that I missed. There will be video and audio versions of each talk, as well as transcripts. If you are interested in this option, once you are logged in to the free seminar just look for the upgrade tab. This link is the free sign up.
Here is the line up for tomorrow:
Day 7 (January 19)
Dr Julian Holmes

“The Use of Ozone in Dentistry”
In his witty, British accent, world renowned expert, Dr Julian Holmes shows us how dentistry can change from doing dentistry like we lived in the 1800s to what he calls minimally invasive or micro dentistry. Dr Holmes shares with us how the use of ozone in dentistry completely revolutionizes the need for drill, fill and bill dentistry. Topics addressed include: REmineralizing filling materials!, the use of ozonated oils to address problem areas, and how we need to change our thinking around dentistry in order for the field to change. Very inspiring information!
