Natural Awakenings Greater Boston - Rhode Island

Jean Nordin-Evans, DDS : Groton Wellness

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 the gateway to health for 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 cleansing and rejuvenating the body, 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 is the first holistic center of its kind in the United States to combine expert professionals in preventative and integrative medicine, biological dental care, a holistic spa, and a clean-food café.

Services provided: Holistic, biological dentistry, integrative medicine, therapeutic spa services and a clean-food café.

Areas of specialty: The center offers a toxin removal education program, designed to inform patients about toxic dental materials, including bridges, crowns and silver fillings which are comprised of 50 percent mercury—the most toxic substance known to mankind that is not radioactive. 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.”
