Dr. Michelle Jorgensen is an author, speaker, teacher, biologic/holistic dentist, and health and wellness provider. After practicing traditional dentistry for 10 years, Dr. Jorgensen became very sick. Through her own journey to return to health, she discovered she had mercury poisoning from drilling out mercury fillings for her patients. She was concerned that there may be other health-threatening materials or procedures in dentistry, and led her to the Biologic/Holistic Dentistry field. For the last 10 years she has been paving the way in Biologic/Holistic dentistry, learning from pioneers all over the world. She has created the Total Care Dental Way, a patient CARE centric, health focused method for treating dental and over all health. Patients from around the world seek out her care, and come to Total Care Dental to have their health restored. A prolific writer, she has authored hundreds of blog posts and articles about dentistry, health and nutrition. Her first Book, Healthy Mouth, Healthy YOU was released in 2019. She is coauthoring a book about patient CARE with an internationally known expert on Lean Management, Karyn Ross, and the Owner of Dental Boot Kamp, Suzanne Black. When not at work Dr. Jorgensen is busy with her husband, four children, and her own mini-farm, where she loves to grow, harvest and preserve her own food.
When was the last time a dentist talked to you about the relationship between your mouth health and your overall health? The problems with modern Western medicine and dentistry, is that the focus is almost entirely on symptoms, instead of the source or cause of the problem. Why did you get that cavity? Does it have to do with what you eat or if you are getting enough nutrients from your food? Do your hormones affect your teeth? How long is that filling going to last and what is it doing to your tooth and body? Who knows? No one talks about it! A holistic dentist will give you answers and help prevent the never-ending loop of exams, fillings, crowns, root canals, surgeries and dental fears that never even address the root of the problem.
