I found Dr. Behm’s office to be really excellent. Best dental experience I have had in all my years. He is caring and efficient and runs a very organized team. My dental work was excellent and I would recommend his office to anyone needing a holistic caring dentist.

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.

Professional Organizations Dr. Behm belongs to:

  • Holistic Dental Association
  • Consumers for Dental Choice
  • International Assn. of Mercury Free Dentists
  • DAMS – Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions
  • Eco Dentistry Association
  • Environmental Dental Association
  • Mercury Free Now
    Price-Pottenger Foundation
  • International Academy of Biological Dentistry & Medicine
    Fluoride Free Dentists

Some of the physicians and dentists I have studied with are:

  • Hal Huggins, DDS
  • Deitrich Klinghardt MD
  • Dr.Boyd Haley
  • Drs.Phil Mollica and Robert Hughes
  • Dr.Omura
  • Dr.Norman Thomas
  • Dr.Shankland
  • Drs.Heidi & Bill Dickerson
  • Dr.Wally Schmidt

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.

About 8 years ago I was searching for a dentist that would take out my amalgam fillings(the silver ones)the proper way, and this search led me to Dr. Behm. I have never been happier with those search results, he and his entire staff are fantastic, attitudes go a long way plus he cares for all of you, not just your teeth. If you live within 500 miles of this Clearwater Florida office, you need to make an appointment. People fly in from all across the country to see him. I live 11 miles and feel so blessed to be so close. I will be seeing him tomorrow to have my bite checked as I had a permanent crown placed yesterday. I look forward to going to the dentist, I never feel any pain.
