I have had difficulty finding good holistic healthcare practitioners in Boston. After I relocated here this winter, I became disillusioned with the local healing community. One doctor I saw was money-hungry and inattentive. Another was set in his ways and wouldn’t listen to feedback regarding what works for my body. I was disappointed and nervous that the same would hold true for dental care. Thankfully that was not the case at Groton Wellness!
After researching dental practices in the Boston area, I chose Groton Wellness because of their knowledgable staff (even the office manager was familiar with the MTFHR genetic mutation!) and emphasis on whole health. The fact that it was over an hour away from Somerville didn’t matter – it is worth the hassle.
I am one of the lucky few who has never had a bad dental experience. Every dental practice I’ve frequented has been decent. However, the quality of care I receive at Groton blows all of those previous experiences away. My dentist, Dr. Katta, is delightful, thorough and intelligent. By following her advice I was able to stop gum recession in its tracks, regrow a bit of tissue and prevent further damage. Plus, she was the first dentist to ever discuss nutrition, genetics and gut health with me during an appointment. Natalie, a hygienist who cleaned my teeth, is an absolute pleasure. I felt like I was seeing an old friend, not having my teeth cleaned.
If you are on the fence about becoming a patient at Groton, I urge you to give them a try. Although some of their services may not be covered by insurance (i.e. a custom mouthguard), the quality of care and attention you receive are worth the extra cost. Plus, if you are in the same boat as me and are having trouble finding decent medical care in the area, they are a good resource and can put you in touch with people who are TRUE healers.
