Nutritional Counseling

bio fresh fruits and vegetablesWe do more than dentistry here, because we know your health is dependent on many things. As a holistic dentistry, we believe that you have to treat the entire body, as well as discover what the underlying problems are that may be causing the oral issues.

That is why we offer nutritional counseling at our practice, so that you receive the information necessary to make optimal diet choices to give you the maximum health possible.

Nutritional counseling will consist of an evaluation of your oral health, general health, and your current diet. We will make recommendations on where you can improve your nutrition, and then work with you to find the best lifestyle for you to achieve a healthy mouth, as well as mind and body.

We believe that everyone can benefit from nutritional counseling, but particularly those who suffer from chronic health problems in the mouth and body, as well as those who are overweight or experiencing big changes in their body from pregnancy, breastfeeding, or menopause.

The whole body is interconnected, therefore what you eat and how you treat your body can and does affect your oral health as well. When you incorporate a healthy lifestyle into your regular oral care,  you are ensuring that your teeth and gums receive the vitamins and minerals they need to function properly.

Testimonials

“My husband and I both cannot imagine going to another dentist than Dr. Stacy Godes. She is truly extraordinary. We live in the Bay Area, and though there are a plethora of medical professionals (including holistic professionals) in the SF Bay, we are so happy with the experiences that we have had with Dr. Godes that we cannot imagine going to someone else. It goes without saying that she is a fantastic dentist. Couple that with her holistic knowledge, integrity, and intuition (how often do you compliment a dentist's intuition??) and it's obvious what a true gem she is. Not only have we experienced the standard dental appointments (cleaning, Xrays, etc), but I have had her remove and replace my amalgam fillings and some old crowns. I also had her extract a root canal. I felt significantly better RIGHT AWAY after each of these procedures and I 100% believe that Dr. Godes is so skilled that they could not have gone better with anyone else. You could not be in better, safer, more knowledgeable, or more competent hands. She is very knowledgeable about diet/nutrition and other aspects of health as well--a truly holistic doctor.”
