Hello, I am Dr. Paul Gilbert and this is my story.
Childhood inspiration from my mother and father:
My mother was a big influence on my passion for nutrition and dental health long before I ever considered dentistry as a career. My mother would turn on the radio to listen to a gentleman named Carlton Fredericks. I remember she sat glued in front of the kitchen radio, listening to everything he was saying. Years later, I discovered that he was a pioneer nutritionist who firmly believed that food is your best medicine. I became an avid fan, just like my mother had been, listening to Carlton Fredricks say that he could help people with common ailments, such as arthritis, just by changing what they were eating.
My father also influenced me in the way of a more traditional medical model, because he was a dentist, practicing in a dental office which was part of my home. I grew up quite literally in a dental office, unknowingly exposing myself to unhealthy concentrations of very toxic mercury vapor from all the silver filling material my father used for patients. Sometimes I played with the mercury, which was readily available in the office. Years later I discovered how mercury toxic I had become.
Becoming a dentist:
A good education was very important to both my parents. Their influence expressed itself when I decided to enter dental school, and become a dentist, just like my dad. I am sure my parents were quite proud of me when I graduated in 1962 from a very prestigious Thomas W. Evans Museum and Dental Institute, at the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia.
Moving away from mainstream dentistry:
By the late 1970´s, I was beginning to understand how anything that gets into the human body has either a negative or a positive impact on your health, just as Carlton Fredericks had said years earlier. My thinking became totally holistic, and I decided to completely burn my traditional dental bridges. I stopped using mercury-silver dental fillings, and threw away everything connected with these filings. In my head and my heart, I had become a holistic dentist. Fortunately, much safer, non-metal, tooth colored dental materials had recently been developed. These became my daily alternative to mercury fillings.
Not using dental fillings with mercury was definitely a milestone in my growing passion for nutrition and health. I was beginning to practice what would eventually become known as biological dentistry.
My passion for nutrition and health fully blossomed. I developed a growing interest in natural approaches to improving health, not just for the whole body, but specifically for the mouth, and the teeth and gums that are so much a part of it.
My problem with kidney stones:
By the early 1980´s, in spite of a determined effort to remain healthy, I was beginning to experience the pain of kidney stones. I had already learned that mercury exposure, even in very small amounts, could eventually make you sick and destroy your health. I wondered if this unexpected health problem might be in some way connected with mercury. I was puzzled because I was taking vitamins every day and I had already stopped using mercury fillings.
One answer came from the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, which I joined in 1985. While attending meetings and listening to lectures, I discovered that I was still being exposed to mercury. Although I had not been using mercury fillings for a long time, I was taking them out if patients asked me to remove them from their teeth. I did not realize that taking out mercury fillings from the teeth of my patients exposed me to as much mercury as putting them in.
No more plain old vitamins for me:
The other answer, a holistic solution to my nagging health problem with kidney stones, came unexpectedly. In 1994, while on vacation with my wife and still searching for a way to put a stop to the kidney stones, I was introduced to a small food supplement company with a rather remarkable philosophy. This company believed that the level of health of your entire body is intimately connected to the quality of the foods you eat. They backed up that philosophy with a remarkable line of pure, clean super food supplements derived from natural and organically grown nutrient rich foods.
I wondered if these supplements might help with my kidney stones. Although a bit skeptical, I thought I would give them a try. I figured, had nothing to lose. This is what happened to me after I started using them:
My first realization that these supplements were special was when I began to experience a noticeable increase in energy, especially in the afternoon.
Then I became aware of sleeping better, with dreams in vivid color.
When the company made digestive supplements available, I added them to my diet. That pretty much put an end to an embarrassing digestive problem I suffered with since I was a teenager.
I had a lower back tooth with a cavity. Sometimes dentists get cavities. My dentist said I should have a root canal because the tooth hurt at times. I believed the nerve would heal once the cavity was cleaned out and a new crown was placed on my tooth. After I got the new crown, my tooth healed without ever needing a root canal.
Later I became aware of the fact that I was almost never sick. I rarely experienced a cold. I have never had the flu. I have never been given a flu vaccine.
I did have one front tooth with a root canal that was done many years ago when I was still in dental school. Although it was comfortable most of the time, I knew that it was always a source of germs that my body had to constantly fight off. I finally had the tooth removed several years ago. The dentist who removed my tooth said he typically sees bone loss in other patients in the same situation. Much to his surprise, he did not see any bone loss any in my mouth. He was so impressed he asked the other dentist in the office to look.
I had an implant placed so I would not show a missing tooth when I smiled. Sometimes implants do not take, especially if the jaw bone is unhealthy or if some of some of the bone is missing. I already knew my jaw bone had to be extremely healthy and none was missing. It was a no-brainer my implant would take. It did.
My gums are always healthy. They are pink and never bleed. My teeth are just as tight in my jaws as they were when I was younger. Frankly, I am glad I will never know how many dental treatments these wonderful supplements helped me avoid.
Oh, about those kidney stones. The symptoms just slowly vanished!
How could all this have happened? For me there is only one answer. Even though I thought I had been eating well, the supplements clearly provided badly needed nourishment that I was not getting before, allowing my body to regenerate and heal. It is really that simple.
These powerful super food products provided me with missing nutrients essential to regaining my health. First, they supplied critical nutrients I absolutely needed to cleanse my body of years of accumulated toxic substances. Second, they provided my body with vital nutrients that allowed my body to regenerate and heal.
Helping you the same way I was helped:
Although I am now fully retired from active dental practice, I am in a unique position to be your dental adviser-counselor and put you on the path to dental health. I say that with absolute confidence because of my many years of experience as a holistic dentist and a user of these special whole food supplements.

The nutritional support they provide may make all the difference in how successful you will be resolving your current dental trouble, whatever it is, and how effectively you will be able to prevent future dental problems. Pretty good odds considering the supplements are safe and there are no side effects.
If it were not for this natural health food I found years ago, I would not have the healthy teeth and gums I still enjoy today. The company that provides the supplements offers a no questions asked, 90 day money back guarantee. That is because they are confident you will not be disappointed. I feel the same way.
