What People Are Saying

Barbara Hoberman Levine
Barbara Hoberman Levine, Author of Your Body Believes Every Word You Say: The Language of the Body/Mind Connection

I would recommend Dr. Mark Breiner unconditionally just on the basis of my 25+ years as one of his dental patients. AND now he has written a surprisingly interesting, highly informative, easy-to-read book. Whole Body Dentistry is easy enough for newcomers to digest yet it contains sufficient information to entice even advanced health practitioners. I was intrigued by how by how much I was learning as I read it."
Bernie Siegel
Bernie Siegel, M.D., Author of Love, Medicine and Miracles and Prescriptions for Living

An important book for everyone who is interested in participating in their own health.

Mark Breiner's new book, Whole Body Dentistry, is the cutting edge of telling the truth about the options you have when you go to a dental office.
Jerome Mittelman

Your total, physical health does depend on your dental health. Dr. Breiner shows you how and why - and gives you fascinating stories to prove it.

Whole-Body Dentistry is an attractive and well-executed lay-person's guide to sensible dental decision-making. Written in a refreshingly open, simple and accessible first person style, the author's passion, dedication and vast clinical experience is abundantly clear...Whole-Body Dentistry offers simple, clear and concise information, it informs and opens possibilities for patients who wish to become active and knowledgeable participants in their health care. Abundant clinical examples illustrate the points of each chapter nicely.

This is a book free of bombast or apology which eloquently provides an essential guide to new concepts and better choices. Written for non-professional audiences, the quality of the information is high enough to provide useful orientation and direction for professionals as well.

This patient education book belongs on the shelves of professionals and in the hands of the public. I recommend it highly.

Warren Levin
Warren M. Levin, M.D.

In a powerful call-to-arms, Mark Breiner challenges the Medical and Dental professions to recognize that the teeth are vital living structures that impact the health of the entire body, so that the old song should include "the tooth bone connected to the heart bone" as well as innumerable other structures. His exposé of the risks to the patient, the dentist and the chair side assistant from exposure to mercury is clear and well-documented, as are the dangers of fluoride. The sections on Root Canals and Cavitations (NICO's) are mind-boggling! Everyone should read this book!

Read an Excerpt

This year millions of Americans and their children will needlessly suffer a broad range of preventable illnesses. Less serious conditions like excessive fatigue and headaches may go unnoticed or will be incorrectly attributed to aging or stress. Thousands of individuals will develop more serious symptoms like arthritis, colitis, Alzheimer's, heart disease, infections, hypertension, thyroid imbalances, migraines, kidney damage, and even neurological problems. These people will become ill for no apparent reason.

But more often than not, there is a reason for these illnesses: their mouth. The renowned German physician, Dr. Reinhard Voll, based on more than forty years of research and observation, estimated that nearly 80% of all illness is related entirely or partially to problems in the mouth. This important statistic would surprise almost all health care practitioners; when I first heard it, it seemed incredible. In fact, both physicians and dentists have been trained to overlook almost entirely the fact that attached to every tooth is a person!

Conventional dentistry takes an extremely limited and mechanistic view of its practice, rarely considering the impact of dental work beyond the frame of the jaw. And there is a disconcerting lack of training on the systemic effects that dental procedures can have on overall body functioning. Dentists have been taught to make treatment decisions without recognizing their impact and with little appreciation of the relationship of the mouth to the rest of the body.

Since most dentists have not been trained to look at the entire person as a whole functioning system, they do not recognize the interrelationship of dental procedures and general health. Traditional dentistry has yet to understand how essential the whole-body approach to treatment is to the patient's well-being.

As a result, traditional dental practices can often cause physical illness and trauma, and can actually do more harm than good. The truth is that every dental procedure is an invasion of the human system and may generate an adverse response somewhere in the body. The milder symptoms are often confused with what we've been led to believe are the normal side effects of stress-filled lives, or the natural aging process.

Seemingly unrelated physical illnesses can be caused by dental problems like non-vital teeth, decay, or impacted wisdom teeth, because of their effect on the body's energetic meridians. In fact, some of the things that we have been told to consider natural or normal may cause completely unnecessary suffering.

That may explain why a new breed of dental practitioner is emerging. These dentists are offering important alternative solutions to traditional dental practices. I like to call this practice "Whole-Body Dentistry."

While, understanding the importance of being a highly skilled and technically proficient practitioner, Whole-Body Dentistry goes beyond this point and takes a broad, holistic view of the dental profession. This all encompassing philosophy recognizes that any work done in the mouth effects the entire human body - often with surprisingly profound results, either positive or negative. By being aware of these relationships, we strive to minimize the invasive quality of these procedures.

Whole-Body Dentistry also interprets information differently. Traditional dentistry has taught us to misread many of the body's cues, because it is still trapped in "old thinking" about the human body. But quantum physics and leading-edge medical theory now indicate that the human system has potential far beyond the prevailing medical model's overly simplistic interpretations.

Consider for a moment that the human body is entirely comprised of billions of tiny particles of energy. Within this energetic system, there are pathways called meridians. Every organ and every part of your body is directly linked to a specific tooth or area of the mouth via these meridians, or energy highways. This connection is so strong that a Whole-Body Dentist can often accurately "guess" your dental history simply by reviewing your physical symptoms.

For example, a patient came to me with chronic sinus problems which seemed to have no cause or cure. Without even examining him, I immediately asked if he had any root canal work performed on his upper first molar, which relates to the maxillary sinuses. He was amazed that I "guessed" correctly and further conversation uncovered that his sinus problems had indeed begun after the root canal. The offending tooth was removed and within a week his sinusitis completely disappeared.

It can often be that simple. A Whole-Body Dentist is like a detective, sorting through a series of clues and signals and putting the information together in a different way to discover the real source of problems. Often extracting a misaligned or offending tooth will alleviate a whole host of seemingly unrelated physical symptoms in a matter of days. Some problems will actually correct in the chair. I have had patients whose eyesight improved while they were still in the dental chair. You cannot underestimate the impact of your teeth and mouth on your entire body's health.
