At DC Smiles, our holistic approach to dental care incorporates total-body health and wellness. We strive to educate our patients about the benefits of integrated healthcare, and provide people at every age and stage of life with quality information that enables them to make informed choices about their care. Last year, Dr. Singer met a patient who had never been told she had hemi-facial micro somia and atresia of the right ear. She is now seeking care for her condition. Dr. Singer set another patient on the path to discover he was full of parasites. Our patient had come to us for TMJ and other pain and through blood tests suggested by Dr. Singer, our patient found he was deficient in key minerals and vitamins which led him to meet with an integrative medicine doctor and is now getting treatment for the parasites that were robbing him of his nutrition.
