Dr. Chavez is a strong advocate of ”Whole Body Dentistry” approach which believes that a person’s oral health is strongly linked to the total well being of the individual.  A person’s organ system shares the same acupuncture meridians which are discrete channels that lie beside the blood vessels.  Any disturbances on the tooth would affect directly or indirectly the organ condition.  Thus, study shows that a person’s medical concerns could be related to his dental condition.
