Whole Health & Wellness – not only Dental Health
Dr Raabe emphasizes whole body health and believes it impacts all facets of your life, including your dental health. Located within his office is One Life Balance , a natural health center representing a broad range of disciplines to offer one, balanced health solution supporting his whole body health philosophy. When it comes to quality of life, most people want to help themselves but don't know where to begin. They are stressed, in pain, and often suffer needlessly. We are dedicated to seeing that every patient enjoys a healthier, happier, longer life.
Nutrition can Stimulate the Body’s Natural Healing
At One Life Balance, we provide nutrition through Naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic medicine and nutrition is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavorable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.
In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments. We believe in providing education and promoting prevention so that you can have a healthy, happy and long life.
Office Sterilization Procedures
The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust.
Infection control and precautions protect both our patients and the staff. Everyone benefits. Our team follows the procedures recommended by several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA,) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These measures include:
- Disinfectant hand soap
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Disposable materials
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat, and pressure. Please feel free to discuss this topic or anything else that concerns you with your dental team.
