Choosing a Dentist
Did you know that your oral health can impact on your physical and mental health? Neither did I until 2015, when I experienced debilitating dental issues.
I have gained insight into the tooth/body connection, oral hygiene, nutrition, lifestyle, detoxification and the importance of finding a skilled and knowledgeable dentist, you feel you can trust and work with as a team.
I am sharing my personal ongoing story to help raise awareness and give hope to others.
It is time for change.
Help! My Teeth are Killing Me!
Convinced my dental issues are contributing to my chronic illness of 13 years, I have spent 8 years travelling all over the UK trying to find a biological dentist to help me, as mainstream dentistry refused to accept there was a problem. It has been an expensive, challenging, overwhelming and traumatic experience, where I have felt unheard, unseen and disbelieved.
In 2021, Dr Seb Lomas crossed my path, and in 2022 we began working together to hopefully resolve the mysteries in my mouth and body. I will be forever grateful to him for his support in what have been very dark times, especially since summer 2021.
My experience of meeting numerous dentists has been a roller coaster ride of emotions and massive learning, leaving me shocked and disillusioned. The findings, conflicting advice, important issues missed and quotes ranging from £999 to £34,000.
In summer 2021 I finally had surgery, you can follow my journey at that time on my You Tube channel and instagram page. This chapter is currently under investigation with the General Dental Council, so I am unable to share any details af this time, other than following surgery, I came to learn my dental journey was far from over. I also discovered the dentist who did my surgery was working without insurance, then suspended, and I believe now retired, with no accountability or justice for patients. My total expenses for this amounted to around £10,000, which needs to be reimbursed, and now the added anxiety of knowing more dental work is required needing to be financed.
I then discovered no lawyer or Barrister will take on a dental claim on a No Win No Fee Basis, if the dentist does not have insurance, and the General Dental Council as the Regulator, have no power to enforce a dentist to reimburse. So yet again, the system has failed the patient yet again.
You can sign my petition here to support my call for the General Dental Council to monitor all dentists dental status, to ensure the protection of patients.
I have seen first hand how the quality of examinations, knowledge and treatment plans varies, even within the holistic dentistry sector. The 'Holistic' brand does not guarantee quality dental care. Do your research prior to having any treatment, and do not rely totally on a website and reviews.
I decided to share my story on a podcast (this will be out Autumn/Winter 2023), and also on You Tube and social media channels, to help raise awareness and give encouragement to others who may also be struggling.
There are no words to express the importance of this treatment for me. My aim was for my mouth to be metal, infection and toxin free, to give me a solid foundation to build upon in my quest for wellness, yet Autumn 2023 I am still not metal, infection, toxin or pain free and in the process of what happens next with my dental surgery.
Since I began the podcast project, I have spoken to people who had to re-mortgage their homes, taken out big loans and multiple credit cards to pay for their dental work. For some it has cost them their job and even their home and marriage. They may have a mouth that is infection free, but now face a lifetime of debt, which in itself causes stress, which impacts negatively on your health.
I have no 'go to' money pot after dedicating 17 years working voluntarily, setting up and running two not for profit organisations, living as a one income family, £10,000 in debt from dental surgery in 2021 with the outcome of a Dental Investigation in October 2023 erasing the Registrant from the Register, an outcome that does nothing to support me.
I will shortly be setting up a new Go Fund Me to support future dental work, diagnostics and therapies. The link will be posted here. In supporting me, you support raising awareness of non-toxic dentistry and a new future for UK dentistry, which is long overdue.

Share my story with your dentist, GP, consultant. It may help others who present with unexplainable chronic symptoms.
I hope by following my story, it will give insight, inspiration and encouragement to others who live with chronic illness to never give up, and for those with healthy teeth, to ensure they remain so, and avoid invasive dental work in the future. Thank you.
