Groton Wellness, an innovative center for health and healing, was founded by Dr. Bob Evans and his wife, Jean Nordin-Evans, as a whole-health dental practice which believes that a person’s teeth are integral to the health of the entire body. This underlying principle is practiced in adult and pediatric dentistry as well as in the orthodontic department. The vision grew to include state-ofthe- art Eastern and Western medical treatments, a Therapeutic Spa for environmental detoxification and pampering, and a clean-food Wellness Café that serves nutritious, whole-food dishes in which many of the ingredients are purchased from local farms. Groton Wellness says it’s the first holistic center of its kind in the United States with expert professionals in preventative and functional medicine and dental care.
Services provided: Holistic dentistry, functional medicine, therapeutic spa services, clean-food café.
Areas of Specialty: The center offers a mercury amalgam removal program, designed to remove toxic dental materials, including mercury amalgam and other fillings, crowns or bridges. Mercury is a toxic material that can escape from fillings in vapor form and become absorbed directly into the brain, depleting and suppressing the immune system. The rate of vaporization increases when the fillings are stimulated by hot liquids, chewing and even brushing teeth. Nordin- Evans explains, “Mercury toxicity is a cumulative toxicity, storing itself in many tissues of the body for years, and possibly is the cause of chronic maladies that have affected people for years.”
Healing/healthy living philosophy: “Treating you as an individual, not your individual parts, is our unique wellness approach to health and healing,” says Nordin-Evans. “We treat by searching for the root cause of an issue and not just addressing symptoms.”
“Clients come early and often to enjoy our nourishing, organic wellness café and join the ongoing wellness conversations on our blog, Facebook and in group get-togethers,” Nordin-Evans says. “They take a yoga or a nutritionally based and delicious cooking class, indulge in a therapeutic massage, have a restorative facial or infrared sauna to detox or just plain relax in our foyer while watching the fish and listening to the waterfall.”
