I want to see a holistic dentist, but my insurance doesn’t seem to have a category for that. Do they not cover holistic dentists?

Dental Insurance companies will only list general dentists and specialists. Holistic dentistry is not a specialty, it’s a philosophy. They appreciate that our bodies are complicated. You can’t just focus on one thing. All our systems are interconnected. As a result, their treatment focuses on care for your entire body, not just your teeth. They know they work together in tandem.
They’re general dentists who practice holistic dentistry. So, you’ll just need to find a dentist on your insurance list who has that philosophy.
It may take a bit of searching, either on the internet or by making phone calls, but you should be able to find what you need.
