Our psycho-physiology is in dynamic balance - homeo-dynamics
rather than homeostasis. This dynamic balance is positive health,
keeping us in harmony with our internal and external environments.
With the immense knowledge we have today, it is becoming apparent
that we are almost in total control of our health status.
As dental health practitioners we have an important role to play
in assisting our patients achieve their health goals. The section
that follows, which I wrote for a dental text book, covers my vision
of the holistic practice.
The reader is encouraged to obtain the complete book, "Complementary
Therapies in Dental Practice", edited by Peter Varley BDS,
FDSRCS, DDFHom, Chairman of the British Homoeopathic Dental Association,

chapters give the reader useful information on complementary therapies
useful to the practicing dental health practitioner.
