Today on Holistic Dentistry I’m joined by my guest, Dr. Shahrzad (Sherry) Sami, a dual specialist in both pediatrics and orthodontics, the creators of the Children's Health Advocacy Training Curriculum Chat, and co-founder of non-profit organization, Love Button Global Movement.
In this episode, we’re discussing Dr. Sherry’s blended passion for pediatric dentistry, orthodontics, and psychology to provide her patients with a whole-body approach. First, Dr. Sherry shares her beliefs around community, Mother Earth, and her mission to promote a culture of love through her work. Then, Dr. Sherry shares patient stories linking psychophysiological symptoms with the mouth, and how she incorporates osteopathy into orthodontics. Plus, Dr. Sherry touches on the distance geopathic frenectomy concept and provides tips for moms when checking for tongue tie.
