Enlightened Dentistry for the New Earth Nation

By Ivan Micholt 

In the New Earth Nation, human beings will no longer live as wage slaves, so working hours will be less, stress will be less, and the working environment will be better.

My feeling is that no one should work more than half time on one particular assignment, so that there is enough time left to do other exciting things one likes to do. This keeps life exciting.

While you read this document, please keep in mind that it  contains my personal ideas, and it is only a guideline towards manifesting the New Earth Dental Ministries. It is in no way meant to be a set of rules!
Looking back on my career, I unfortunately have to conclude that I have often worked like a wage slave, spending sometimes up to twelve hours on my stool, under the self inflicted stress to finish on time, to get the next appointment on time or face angry comments.

The 'patients' of the old paradigm are no longer patient, but who can blame them, as everyone is under constant stress from all sides, and this stress is still increasing exponentially. We are in a pressure tank with ever increasing pressure... ready to explode!

Adding all this up, I conclude that for the benefit of everyone we urgently need to manifest the  New World Nation before - as Sacha puts it - the tower of Babel crashes down on our heads!

Dentistry in the new earth project should be completely in line with the total vision for the new earth project: to get out of the matrix of the controlled old world thinking to discover a new world and newly gained wisdom which is waiting for us as soon as we release the old paradigm.

We will still need a dental chair and equipment, but we have to release the old paradigm that dentistry equals drilling and filling and that eventually most of us end with false teeth.

Yes we will still have to address the scars left by the old world, yes we will have to face the removal of toxic substances, yes we have to take care of the malnutrition we have been subjected to, and which caused severe deficiencies that led to most of the dental decay we face today, but most of all we have to move to the era of the finer arts of dentistry, which was already known in the Atlantic civilization. Enlightened dentistry will be back.

What follows is very personal, but I feel I can and should share it because of its importance.

My teacher explained me what the influence of the position or movement of a particular tooth can be on a human being. I became scared when I heard this, as it gave me the feeling that I was being like an apprentice sorcerer, I was doing all kinds of things to the teeth without having the slightest idea what the consequences could be. So I asked to instruct me in this old art. My teacher's answer was that it was too soon (it was 1990) to bring this knowledge. Knowledge without love leads to destruction he said (and this civilization lacks love), knowledge used with love however is called wisdom, and that is what we need.

All you have to do at this point and time, he said, is to ask divine guidance every morning, and all you will do will be guided and will be fine.

He explained that the same way this knowledge can be used to heal, it can be used to create super soldiers. Next he explained that in the time of Atlantis, nearly all disharmonies (which we call diseases) were cured by temporarily applying signs (a circle, a cross, a pentagram...) on the teeth, but you need to know which sign on which tooth at what time for what disharmony.

For this art, the same is true: when we are ready to receive it as wisdom, it will be given to us, but if we lack the love, it would be destructive.
So let us release the mud we have been so attached to, and break free from the shackles of material thinking.

Only this will lead us to an oasis of love in our heart, never to be reached by the caravan of thoughts.

We start working with the knowledge we already have and that knowledge which we can acquire in the short term. Using this knowledge with love transforms it into wisdom, and if we use that for the benefit of mankind (and all other realms) we are manifesting God's plan for our Mother Earth as much as we can at this point of our evolution.

Now let us look at this from the perspective of our dental ministries.

They will:

  • have a beautiful architecture and colors, have soothing soft music, be full of natural light,  have a spacious atmosphere, natural air-conditioning if possible, in short be a pleasant place to be.
  • have a team of friendly, highly trained normal people, who are committed to deliver outstanding holistic care and gentle dentistry in a relaxed and comfortable  good atmosphere. 
  •  have the guidance of a Dental Ministry Academy, where all the knowledge and our whole philosophy can be shared in every direction, so that everyone has the opportunity to share his/her insights and ideas so that we all grow and improve
  • have a communicative approach, transferring knowledge to educate the person who comes for advice or treatment to allow that person to take responsibility. 
  • be simple yet have state of the art technology to be able to deliver the best quality. High tech interventions may need to be outsourced to one of our larger ministries, or could be performed in house by a visiting specialist, who can eventually bring his own special tools.  
  • be holistically oriented, taking into account the whole person, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
  • use treatments which are as a-traumatic and minimally invasive as possible.  
  • offer the option and a safe plan to remove the toxic substances which have been inserted by the 'old world' dentistry. This is done in cooperation with a naturopath detoxification specialist. (who must not necessarily be on the spot)

Fig 1. image of some important topics

To set the pace, let me start with a one liner...
'A headache is not the result of a lack of aspirin, so dental decay is not the result of a lack of fluoride...'

We have to focus on the causes of a problem and not so much on covering up the symptoms. In dentistry we are mostly confronted with symptoms, and we cannot ignore them, because the person might suffer from the symptoms and we have to relieve them, but we have to emphasize on the underlying causes. The person will be left with a scar (a filling, a missing tooth, an implant...), but at least if we take the right steps, the incidence of these problems will diminish even in this generation.

For future generations, we will most likely be able to almost completely eradicate dental decay and hopefully also orthodontic and  periodontal problems if we succeed to implement  nutrition with a vital energy  and a content of minerals, vitamins and enzymes  that is comparable to what indigenous civilizations used to consume.

To explain this, let me refer to what I call "the bible of dentistry": this book was published in 1939, the author is Weston Price and the book is called "nutrition and physical degeneration".

In the late 19th and early 20th century, the rate of dental decay and all other dental problems started to rise alarmingly, even to a hundred times more than what it used to be.

Western medicine / dentistry did not come up with real solutions or preventive measures. To this date, the main focus is drilling, filling, extracting, implanting, orthodontic appliances, fluoride, oral hygiene. Oral hygiene is obviously good, and it would be unthinkable to turn the clock back, but it is not the most authentic prevention, because it suppresses the symptoms of what turns out to be malnutrition!

Measures like brushing are necessary, but we have to address the cause, which is above all our nutrition. The nutrition lacks many of the most necessary building blocks of our body on one side, and on the other side there is this oversupply of sugars.

Weston Price was born in Ontario in 1870, and he graduated as a dentist from the university of Michigan in 1893. He started practicing in Cleveland, Ohio. In his 37 years of practicing, for fourteen years he was at the helm of the research section of what would become the American Dental Association. During this period he witnessed an exponential rise in dental problems. He also noted that the children who had lots of decay would be more prone to get TB, which was an epidemic, so apparently their immune systems were also affected.

Many researchers where trying to find the causal factors for this evolution, and while they were trying to define 'something they had' as a causal factor, Weston Price looked at it from a different perspective and tried to find 'what they lacked'.

His work has been hailed and criticized, but quackwatch and other negative comments do not impress me, as I see the logic behind it, and it remains steady throughout all these years.

In 1930, he and his wife set out for a nine year worldwide quest to find healthy populations. This happened because they had heard that there were populations that were not plagued by all this decay. They found these native populations all over the world, and documented their dental and general health with some 18000 photos. They also studied their diets, which were completely different from North to South and East to West, but there was one constant factor: it did supply all the necessary nutrients.

First Weston and his wife came to Europe and visited Switzerland, where they studied the population of the highest and most remote places, where the people were isolated from the rest of the world half of the year. They consumed mainly rye and unpasteurized milk and cheese from their cattle that grazed on the most pristine high altitude pastures.

Next Weston and his wife visited the islands around Scotland, they also visited New Zealand, Australia, several  islands of the Pacific, Africa, South America, and the Eskimo populations in North Canada.

They studied teeth, general health and diet. As far as the teeth were concerned, they counted the decayed teeth per 1000 teeth. (this means around 32 people)

The count was very low, usually between zero and five per thousand, in spite of the fact that the majority of these people had never heard about oral hygiene or even seen a toothbrush. At the same time these populations, including children, were apparently free from TB, while it was a rampant epidemic outside these communities.

Generally, as his photos show, these individuals had rather round faces (obviously different depending on their ethnic group) with broad dental arches and perfectly aligned teeth.

In these populations there were also groups which had changed from their native diet to a Westernized diet including white flour, margarine, pasteurized milk and cheese and so on. This resulted in a spectacular rise in the incidence of dental decay: he counted between 500 and 700 decayed teeth per 1000, in other words a hundredfold increase.

Weston Price wanted to know what the nutritional differences where, and so he took samples of the food back home to his lab in Ohio. The result of the analysis was that the 'foods of commerce' as he called it, had ten times less minerals and four times less vitamins compared to the native fresh food. He found that this was not only due to the processing or 'refining' of the food, but largely to the mass production farming methods that exhausted the farmland.

We can state with certainty that this has not improved today, the contrary is true! Fortunately there is an adaptation of the species which will usually start after three generations. The body chemistry tries to adapt to the new situation, otherwise we would go extinct.

The native populations knew that whatever is taken from the soil should be returned to it, but this knowledge has been lost or is willingly ignored, with the exhaustion of the farming land as a result. If nothing is returned, after a few crops, the minerals and spore elements in the soil are exhausted. Modern agricultural methods will add chemicals which allow the plant to grow a nice plant, but these plants do not contain the elements we need, and so the consumption does not supply what our body needs.

So we were told at dental school that decay is the result of inadequate oral hygiene and too much sugar consumption. Weston Price took saliva samples from individuals without decay and from others with rampant decay. He took these samples to his lab in the US, where he analyzed what happened when he brought this saliva in contact with ground teeth.

He could demonstrate that if the saliva was from a healthy subject, it would add minerals to the powdered tooth substance. If however the saliva was from someone with rampant decay, it would remove minerals.

This proved that the lack of minerals causes decay. One reason for this is that one of the important roles of our saliva is to constantly re-mineralize the enamel. This is necessary because every time we eat or drink something acid, there is a superficial deterioration of the enamel. This can easily be demonstrated: when you cut an apple and put the freshly cut side on a shiny marble surface and leave it there for some minutes, once you remove the apple and dry the surface, you notice a dull spot where the apple was. This happens because the acids from the apple leached out some of the minerals from the marble surface.

The exact same thing happens with our teeth, and as you can imagine, if this would happen daily, after a couple of years there would be no enamel and ultimately no teeth left.

Fortunately  our saliva will normally fill these micro crevices within thirty minutes, this is if we have minerals, if not, erosions develop and decay may be the next step.

Once I understood this phenomenon, I suddenly also understood what all dentists know without understanding the reason: 90% of all cavities start between the age of ten and twenty. Now I understand why: this is the age we grow quickly and we have an enormous need for minerals and since the food is deficient an enormous shortage of minerals is the result! Once the growth stops, very often no new decay develops, except during pregnancy (when again more minerals are needed) and old age (when the digestion and absorption diminish)

At the same time I understood why most children don't have calculus (also called tarter). Calculus is formed when the tooth is covered with a layer of plaque (a glue the bacteria form to adhere to the surface). In this case, the plaque is mineralized instead of the enamel.

Once this has happened, we can no longer remove the plaque easily by brushing, and it forms a rough surface which attracts more bacteria, and these will cause gum infections ultimately leading to loss of teeth because the ligaments and the bone deteriorate.

There is yet another important detail worth mentioning: the majority of the people Weston Price examined had never used a toothbrush, some used wooden sticks like it is common in India, yet most had perfect teeth.

First there are the minerals, but secondly there was only minimal sugar consumption, usually honey. Research has shown that every sugar consumption is a sugar 'shot' for the bacteria, and the more regularly this happens, the more these bacteria get trained to consume this sugar quickly, and in doing so they create an acidic moment on the surface of the teeth. This leaches out some Calcium. As mentioned the saliva will restore this if we have minerals, but it takes about thirty minutes. If we eat sugar too often, the decalcification overpowers the re-calcification and we get decay.

There is yet another important thing which emerged from Weston Price's research: the main reason we see so much orthodontic problems (misaligned teeth).

We were told in dental school that that orthodontic problems are the result of genetic mismatches: for instance inheriting large teeth and  small arches, or any other mismatch.

The reality appears to be more complex, and according to Weston Price's findings, the majority of orthodontic problems is again largely due to the lack of building blocks (minerals) for the skeletal structure of the body.

He found that almost all the individuals in the native societies he studied had perfectly aligned teeth. In one case he could examine over one thousand skulls from previous generations, and could not find one badly aligned tooth. He saw that the children from the groups which were eating a 'Westernized diet', had narrower faces, narrower dental arches, lots of crowded teeth, and ultimately lots of decay.

He also photographed couples who ate the native diet, andthey had children with perfectly aligned teeth. Next these same parents changed their diet and started eating Western processed food, and they had more children. The children born after this change in diet had all the above mentioned orthodontic problems, and yet they had the exact same genetic background. This is perfectly understandable when we listen to what Bruce Lipton found, it is the environment, not the genes. My understanding of this is that the blueprint is perfect, but the mason does not get all the necessary materials, and so he builds a structure with many shortcomings, which is an imperfect reflection of the blueprint...


We are all aware that one of the major mistakes of the 'old world' dentistry is the use of highly toxic substances, with mercury at the forefront. In the beginning - we talk about the first half of the 19th century - it was already known that amalgams were very toxic, but it was the only cheap sturdy filling material.

Later all attempts to stop the use of amalgam were blocked by the other side, which Sacha calls 'the Babylonian priesthood', as this is a way to poison nearly the whole population, but especially the dentists.

I stopped using mercury amalgam early in my career, more than thirty years back. This happened after I read an article in a German professional magazine. They had measured the mercury vapors in some fifty dental offices, and they concluded that there were dangerously toxic high levels in every single office, even at the dentist's homes, as they transported the mercury droplets on their shoes. Their final advice was to ventilate the office more! After reading this my conclusion was I should stop using this...

As you can imagine, in dental school not a word about this was said, in spite of the fact that the highly toxic nature of mercury was known since hundreds of years. I remember our professor warning us that dentists did not have much of a life expectancy: at that time (the 70's) it was only 52 years. He went on mentioning that dentists had the highest rate of nervous breakdowns and suicides, and the highest rate of divorce. Now it is clear to me why: these are symptoms of mercury poisoning, but not a word was said about that.

When I think of how forty of us (students) were mixing the silver powder and the mercury droplets by hand, next squeezing the excess mercury from that mixture through a leather cloth, with all the tiny droplets falling everywhere, and this happened in a room with a rather low ceiling and without special suction or ventilation... They were poisoning us right there!

      first of all we need to stop giving more poisons. To achieve this, we must:
o   never us amalgam
o if metal is necessary, it should be either gold or semi precious (silver-palladium) or biocompatible like titanium or zirconium oxide.
o   biocompatible filling materials,  ceramics or biocompatible composites
o   test patient biocompatibility with electro acupuncture
o   biocompatible root canal fillings, detox first with ozone or plasma torch.
o   antibiotics only if there is no other option
o   local anesthetics, as biocompatible as possible, limit the use of articaine;
o   use hypnosis to cut down on injections
o   stay away from Fluor

  •  next we need to remove as many of the old toxic substances as possible

o   remove and replace toxic fillings, mainly the amalgams in a safe way
o   remove toxic root canal fillings (and replace where appropriate)
o   remove and replace toxic prosthetic materials
o   curettage of the bone after an extraction to remove as much of the infected/toxic  material as possible


First three quotes; the definition of holistic, biological dentistry as formulated by:

The International Academy of Oral Medicine § Toxicology (IAOMT): 'A more biocompatible approach is the hallmark of “biological dentistry.” In using that term, we are not attempting to stake out a new specialty for dentistry, but to describe an attitude that can apply to all facets of dental practice, and to health care in general: to always seek the safest, least toxic way to accomplish the mission of treatment, to do it while treading as softly as possible on the patient’s biological terrain.'

The Holistic Dental Association: We believe that Holistic involves an awareness of dental care as it relates to the entire person. We believe that health care practitioners and recipients should be provided with appropriate information to make informed choices that will enhance personal health and wellness while feeling loved, accepted, and understood /.../ We believe in openly sharing resources. We believe in an inter-disciplinary approach to health that facilitates the individual's innate ability to heal her/himself.

Holistic Dental Network: "an approach to Dentistry that promotes health and wellness instead of the treatment of disease. This approach to Dentistry encompasses both modern science and knowledge drawn from the world's great traditions on natural healing...Holistic Dentistry acknowledges and deals with the mind, body, and spirit of the patient, not just his or her "Teeth", and lays out the following basic principles:
  • Proper nutrition for the prevention and reversal of degenerative dental disease
  • Avoidance and elimination of toxins from dental materials
  • Prevention and treatment of dental malocclusion (bite problems=physical imbalance)
  • Prevention and treatment of gum disease at its biological basis
As we see it:
·         taking into account the whole person, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
·       this means communicating with the person  avoiding and eliminating toxicity as much as possible with the help of a detoxification specialist / naturopath.testing for biocompatibility (using electro-acupuncture or other methods)  using minimally invasive, minimally traumatic treatments, removing as little healthy tissue as possible
taking into account galvanic currents
I mentioned  in 'manifesting the vision' that I believe there is vastly more to be done and unveiled than described above, once we start uncovering this wisdom, we start touching the reality of enlightened dentistry! For the time being, we are merely scratching the surface.
In theory, the ideal dentistry is no dentistry, but even with the very best preventive measures, that will not be completely possible, at least as long as we are in a dense material body. Judge for yourself when you look at the list of possible complications in the dental field, as some are mentioned in the topic 'dental teams' page 16.

So when we need to intervene, to either allow create the right circumstances to allow our body to do the healing, or to restore ourselves, we better us the latest technologies, which should be the best, least toxic and least traumatic.
Just some examples:

  • orthodontics used to give good results only with the use of brackets and wires and braces, but now the latest in invisible and less invasive methods which use computer generated almost invisible retainers achieve excellent results with most orthodontic conditions. (ecligner may be the best) 
  • radiofrequency scalpel for very precise microsurgery 
  •  lasers for a host of applications, but still expensive and slow for some, irreplaceable for others 
  •  cold plasma torch is not yet available commercially,  but we need to help that happen, because it will be a tool that we can no longer do without. It decontaminates tooth / root/ root-canal / implant surfaces in seconds and improves the 'wettability' by lowering the surface tension 
  • 3D x-ray imaging is in some cases the only tool that can give us the information we need. It is indispensible in many implant cases, to assess  bone thickness and shape 
  •  3D camera impressions to create virtual models and milling machine to make CAD-CAM  (computer aided designed and manufactured) prosthetic restorations, such as crowns and bridges on the spot without having to send them around the world. Also for virtual orthodontic models, because the plaster casts take lots of storage space. 
  • ultrasound imaging to find bone cavitations and assess nerve vitality 
  •  biomed-x equipment to assess the overall health condition as related to prevention and also general health. 
  •  computer guided Implantology (materialize, simplant) 
  •  computer guided anesthetic injections (quicksleeper, sleeper-one, Kmg smart ject) 
  • computer guided occlusion analysis (T-scan) 
  • these are just some of the most important technologies, as there are many more, but always one has to choose what makes a substantial difference, as the investment in these technologies is also substantial, so we might have to limit them mainly to our larger centers.

If needed for one of our residents, they can go there wherever we have the technology available which they need.


  •  have a beautiful architecture and colors, 
  •  have soothing soft music, 
  •  be full of natural light,  
  •  have a spacious atmosphere, have 
  •  natural air-conditioning if possible, in short be a pleasant place to be. 
  •  ideally  treatments should only be administered during daylight hours, except for emergencies 
  •  since the villages are not large, and transportation is well organized, it will most probably not take longer than about 15 minutes to reach the ministry. This means that there is no need for the dreaded waiting in the dental office, even if the timing runs a bit late: we call the next person when we are ready, and in the time it takes to clean and disinfect the workplace our next person will have time to come. 
  •  we follow checklists for cleaning, disinfecting, sterilizing, calling the next patient, the administration ...

There is increasing evidence that dental health has an enormous impact on general health. This concerns especially periodontal (gum & bone) health. People with periodontal problems have a risk of cardiac problems increased with up to 200%. The reason is that when there are severe periodontal problems, this can be the equivalent of an infected open wound the size of your hand. This wound sends a constant stream of harmful bacteria as well as toxins from them in the bloodstream, too many for our immune system and body to control. If there are any existing deposits inside the arteries, what seems to be the case for most adults, these bacteria adhere to these less smooth areas, further obstructing the bloodstream.

Healing this gum and bone infection substantially reduces this health threat, which is not only increasing the risk of cardiac problems, but also draining the body of vital energy, because an enormous effort is needed from the immune system to try to contain this severe but often unnoticed infection.

Periodontologists treat these problems, but the current techniques are surpassed by a new approach developed by William Hoisington, from Seattle. He developed a new technique in collaboration with the Dental Postgraduate Implantology Section of the University of Nice. (France)

In most cases, the traditional approach is to open the gums, to expose the roots and the bone and to clean them as well as possible by curettage. Next the gums are stitched back in place. A problem is the root and the bone cells dry out resulting in a necrotic (dead) layer of bone, along with all the cuts in the gum that have to heal. This process works to a certain extent, but gives weeks of discomfort, along with inevitable recessions of the gum line, and some of the vital tissues around the root are damaged.

This new treatment, called BOST (= Bone One Session treatment) was developed in accordance with the latest insights in bone regeneration. The whole treatment is done in one (long) session, and the gum is not cut loose and not stitched. The discomforts are tenfold less, and the regeneration much better. Within a week, the gums stop bleeding, and 7 weeks later, the tissues have completed most of their regenerative work. Compare it to the healing of a broken bone, only in this case, the bone was dissolved by the acids, enzymes and toxins from the bacteria. It is clear that since the body can now reduce the effort of the immune system to a ‘stand by level’, the energy drainage stops, and the person regains vitality, so this treatment is truly REVITALISING.

It was Teresa Hale of the Hale Clinic in London who introduced me to William Hoisington. Worldwide only five dentists were trained in this new method, William unfortunately passed away in 2010. The details of this technique cannot be described on one page, but are can be understood by all. I know, because I explained it to hundreds, and all understood why this works so much better, that is why they chose this treatment.
There is an enormous need for this kind of healing technique, since at least 10% of the population has severe periodontal problems, and up to 90% has some problem.

Let us look at what situations we need to solve and promote healing heal or at least restore function.

  •  prevention prevails: information on nutrition primarily, oral hygiene etc. 
  •  emergencies: trauma, loss of tooth or part of it by any cause, acute infections, pain... 
  •  chronic issues:

o    organizing regular checkups
o   calculus (tartar) formation needs to be removed
o   decay
o   chronic periodontal infections
o   gum retractions (by excessive brushing and other iatrogenic causes)
o   orthodontic mal-positions
o   phonetic malfunctions associated with mal-positions
o   bad habits like grinding and many others
o   erosions of teeth due to any origin (reflux, grinding, brushing...)
o   intoxications from toxic dentistry
o   sensitive areas
o   food retention            

  • aesthetic requests

To address all these conditions, sometimes we are facing extreme challenges to allow a person to have an acceptable function, phonetics and aesthetics.

In order to give the best possible answer according to the actual knowledge, we have a team of specialists who share their insights to find a solution for any particular person's condition.

If we are on known territory, and there is no need to consult with specialists, for these cases we have a good set of checklists, exactly like a pilot.

It is our goal to exceed the expectations of those we serve.

Dentistry has become far more complex than it used to be, and the present knowledge (even limited as it is) has become so vast that it has become virtually impossible for one person to know it all, let alone be able to perform it all.

Compare this to a musician: there are so many instruments in an orchestra. Even if one person knows all the details about every instrument, as the director is supposed to, it is still impossible for one person to master all these instruments. Maybe one person can play all of them, but he or she will never ever be outstanding in all. The same applies to our field.

So this is a fact that we have to live with at this time in our evolution.

When a person needs dental treatment, it may be urgent, the first thing to do is to get them out of pain, kind of first aid. This buys us time to look at treatment options and to agree on a treatment plan.

In an ideal world - and it is our vision to get as close to that as we can - we have a team  of specialists look at the complex cases and define the treatment options.

This team or any member of the team can be anywhere in the world, as long as they get all the important information and if they can sit together or come together in a video conference to assess the options.

Separate from what is mentioned above, our specialists follow the latest developments in their field of expertise, and whenever they feel it is relevant, share their latest findings so that the relevant knowledge is automatically shared with all.

Now that the world has become a village so to say, we can communicate with all instantly.

It was an exciting journey to write this paper, now all we have to do is manifest...

With gratitude and humility and many thanks to the Divine Beings for the inspiration,
and also to Sacha Stone and Natalia Rose for asking me to help them with this.
