About the Instructor
Dr. Paul Rubin, DDS, MIAOMT has been in private practice of holistic dentistry in the Seattle area for over 40 years. He has networked with naturopathic physicians and other holistic health practitioners, and learned what is missing in their knowledge and training about the oral and systemic health connections and about dentistry in general. He has created this course to bridge that gap. He has taught this same course as a “live” elective class for clinic level ND students as well as practitioners at Bastyr for the last three years, where it received overwhelmingly positive reviews He has worked for over three decades with the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, where he has been awarded as both Fellow and Master of the IAOMT, and brings that experience and knowledge also to the content of this course.
