Natural Dentistry
"I started having a lot of different problems, my heart would race, basically all kinds or different problems started happening, so I started doing a lot of research on root canals and it being a dead organ in your body and it made sense to me, having all those bacteria in my body streaming along, it can definitely effect other symptoms of your body. I came to the conclusion it is best to try and alleviate the whole problem and what better way to do that than to just start with what you definitely know is causing some of your aliments and some of your symptoms."

About Dr.Behm

Dr. Raymond Behm

Since graduating from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1968, the practice of Dentistry has been an evolution, a constant quest to improve my skills and knowledge, always in the direction of increasing patient gains toward better health.

After dental school, I joined the service and was an Army Dentist in Thailand during the Vietnam war. Upon returning to the States, I practiced in the Palm Beach FL area, where natural approaches to dentistry first caught my eye, then moved to the Tampa Bay area in the 1990s.

I now practice both neuromuscular (relating to the nerves and muscles of the head and neck) and Natural or Holistic Dentistry, and have not placed a mercury amalgam filling since 1986, and not done a root canal since 1994.

We are one of the very few dental offices in the US who practices both Natural Holistic Dentistry as well as Neuromuscular Dentistry.

And, some of the people who have been an inspiration to continue learning more about dentistry (but not necessarily in this order) are:

The brilliant Dr. Norman Thomas, who has more degrees than I have fingers on my hands. He is Clinical Director at Las Vegas Institute, and has been instrumental in keeping dentistry interesting and exciting for me. One of my prized possessions is a signed photo of Dr. Thomas, myself and my wife.

Drs. Weston Price and Francis Pottenger These two gentlemen were ahead of their time, and proved that a healthy diet created sound bone structure, teeth and an optimum mouth. Royal Raymond Rife is, in my opinion, the father of Energetic Medicine.

Dr. Boyd Haley, former Chairman of the Biology Dept. at the Univ. of Kentucky.
