As clients, we want to know if we can ‘like, know and trust’ the businesses we buy from and the people whose services we use, so in this series we talk to the Changemakers who are making a difference in the world and ask them to step out into the spotlight to tell us their story.
It’s the turn of Dr Elmar Jung, Holistic Dentist.
Tell us about yourself and what you do…
I’m a father of three, keen skier and advocate for holistic dentistry ever since leaving Dental school more than 30 years ago.
How did you get started?
I started like any other dentist at University, drilling filling, placing mercury-amalgam fillings, composite fillings, doing root canals, crowns and bridges as well as tooth extractions and all the other procedures dentists-to-be are trained in.
What were you doing in a previous life?
My parents took us kids skiing from a very early age, so I’m pretty good at it. I even became a Skiing instructor during University which was great as I got the opportunity to earn some pocket money and go skiing for free in fantastic locations such as Engelberg or St Moritz.
During University I also worked for Lufthansa, catering airplanes and doing the washing up, a pretty tough job. The highlights came when we were booked by companies or individuals to cater their parties.
Early on, I realized that treating symptoms is the most common approach that dentists and doctors take to tackle illnesses. Convinced that there must be another way, I embarked on a remarkable journey to explore complementary diagnostic and treatment methods which offer a whole person approach.
What’s your USP? What sets you apart from your competitors?
My mission is to empower patients to take full responsibility for their own health and well-being. I do this by supporting their transition from toxic dentistry to biological dentistry.
What kind of feedback you have received from clients?
“I have been treated previously by a number of biological dentists both in Europe and the UK. Dr Jung proved to be head and shoulders above any other I have used. Extensive Knowledge of a Whole Body Approach, always available to answer a question, completely professional. One of the best.”
“I’m exceptionally happy with my treatment from Dr. Jung. His expertise and care was of the utmost importance during my dental treatment. Dr. Jung’s professional approach was positive, friendly and respectful throughout. I would recommend Dr. Jung to anyone that’s considering an alternative approach to dental health with the knowledge and friendly understanding that Dr Jung has. Great dentist and highly recommended”.
“I was first treated by Dr. Elmar Jung four years ago and have had some further work done recently. Despite this long gap Dr. Elmar knew exactly who I was, what my situation was, and following preparatory examination work explained exactly what he proposed to do I had plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discuss the work before going ahead.
As I live 3 hours away from the practice, when I have had any follow up questions, it has been easy to contact Dr. Elmar on the phone and discuss the situation, and agree a way forward.
The holistic approach to dentistry practised by Dr. Elmar, means he is well versed in a wide range of medical conditions and supportive of complementary treatments.
This has been a very helpful part of my consultations. In short I have had excellent, skill-full and caring attention from Dr. Elmar and would not hesitate to recommend him”
“I cannot rate Elmar Jung high enough. An excellent dentist, who has helped my health enormously. He is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of dentistry and health. A top-notch dentist. I am very happy with the treatments undergone.”
What’s the next big project coming up for you?
I have just released my latest book, so I will rest for a short while and see what opportunities arise from there.
What’s your big dream?
My big dream is to establish or join a truly holistic clinic where medical, dental and supporting treatments are offered in a kind of medical wellness environment, in a one-stop experience.
Where can we find your services?
At present I am working from Atlantic Clinic in Southampton.
