Why would a dentist offer facials?

This was my question. The answer caused me to have an “Aha!” moment.

The way we approach our lives is in separates. We often don’t buy a wardrobe we buy pieces. We mix and match. We do the same with food. We buy things that we like to eat not a balanced day of nutrition. Daily activities, we work, we may exercise, sleep, spend time with friends and family. We don’t balance each day or our week in a whole picture way.

The health care world is beginning to encourage us to take a big picture approach instead of hounding us for specifics. Overall health is important, it allows us to care for ourselves without taking out the stuff we that makes us feel good. Health care providers are starting to combine services to offer a larger picture solution for our bodies.
