During an interview with Doctor Relations, Dr. Marvin Pantangco, a holistic dentist from The Center for Natural Dentistry, discussed his approach to oral care, which provides his patients with more than what they had bargained for. Through his practice of holistic dentistry, patients are assured that their entire wellbeing is catered for – not just their oral health. He acknowledges that oral health and general body wellness are directly related.

According to a 2016 study conducted by the Karolinska University Hospital in Sweden, people afflicted with gum disease have a 28% higher risk of suffering a heart attack. Additionally, the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics’ 2015 report indicates that heart disease is the number 1 killer among men and women in the United States. Heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis, among others, are connected to poor oral health.
“It is not uncommon to find dental treatments preoccupied with trying to solve the oral problem. Unfortunately, the rest of the body’s welfare is ignored and therefore optimal health of the whole body is compromised,” Dr. Marvin said. “However, this doesn’t have to be the case anymore.”
Non-holistic approaches have prevailed in the past. They have been trusted as the best solution for dental procedures like filling teeth and fitting dentures. However, the components of these treatments have been found to have harmful materials, such as amalgam and other substances. While they have solved the primary problems, other problems have been created unintentionally in the process.
Holistic dentistry pays attention to all these concerns by taking a well-rounded approach to dental care. It averts exposure to toxic mercury, which arises from the use of amalgam fillings or the harmful heavy metals present in some dentures. It further provides better alternatives that are not only safe, but also efficient and effective. It also heals teeth through better nutrition.
“Holistic dentistry accomplishes a lot more than the usual oral treatment. Patients are guaranteed quality healthcare whenever they are treated by a natural dentist. We must incorporate the technological advancements in our day to ensure our patients get the best dental care available today,” said Dr. Marvin.
In a review of Dr. Marvin’s work, K. H. said “Dr. Marvin saved my life. There is really no way to put into words how grateful I am that he does the work that he does. I had been sick my entire life (constant colds and flus, hypothyroidism, and later excruciating rheumatoid arthritis). Now I know I had been carrying infected holes in my jaw since I was 13… I love that he understands about healing teeth through diet rather than making money on ‘drilling and filling.’”
Dr. Marvin is actively involved in the campaign for nutrition, mercury awareness, the awareness on gum disease and dentistry for the whole body in partnership with well-respected organizations. Dr. Marvin Pantangco has been bringing smiles to the local residents for more than 17 years. He is an IABDM Board Certified Biological Dentist and is passionate about helping people achieve optimal health and wellness.
