As a celebrity dentist, Dr Wander comments regularly in the media about dental topics of interest and you may have seen or heard him on BBC Greater Manchester Radio or ITV Granada.
For years people have taken care of themselves using techniques and medicines that work with, rather than against, the body. You may not realise that the same natural and minimally invasive care is also available for your teeth and mouth. Dr Philip Wander specialises in dentistry techniques that minimise discomfort, and improve health, not only in your mouth, but in your body as a whole.
As founder and Chair of the British Homeopathic Dental Association he has over 15 years experience of using homeopathy in dentistry, both to prepare patients for treatment and to encourage healing afterwards. He is one of the best known homeopathic dentists in the UK and his work has led him to being awarded an honorary fellowship of the Faculty of Homeopathy.
With over 30 years experience in dentistry he is recognised, both in the UK and internationally as an expert in clinical dental photography - a topic on which he has lectured extensively.
Dr Wander's priority as a dentist is to provide you with the highest quality dental care using materials and methods which optimise your overall health. From the moment you step into our warm and friendly reception area you can be reassured that your physical and mental wellbeing is our first priority. Dr Wander understands that many people are a little apprehensive when visiting the dentist and he will do everything he can to put you at ease.
Whether or not you already have in mind the treatment you would like, we will spend your first appointment discussing your past medical and dental history and reviewing the treatment options available to you. Dr Wander firmly believes that you should take an active and integral role in your dental health.
Dr Wander will provide you with detailed information on the proposed procedures, enabling you to make an educated decision, and will take as much time as you need to answer questions and conerns. Once we have agreed on the
most suitable treatment, Dr Wander will often prescribe a homeopathic pre-treatment programme to prepare your body for the procedure, boosting your immune system and encouraging healing. If you are particularly anxious he can also provide you with some remedies to help you relax.
At all times during the treatment, he will keep you informed about the procedures taking place. Our sophisticated cameras allow you to see exactly what he sees in your mouth, and enable you to monitor and understand the bespoke treatment you receive. After each stage of the treatment has been completed you will, if necessary, receive further homeopathic remedies to reduce any discomfort. These remedies are effective and have no side effects.
If your health is such that you would benefit from further investigations, Dr Wander can refer you to recommended naturopaths, nutritionists and herbalists and organise testing for food tolerances and mineral deficiencies. If you have any questions about the treatments available, don't hesitate to speak to our receptionists who will be pleased to help.
