Helping people be well.

Our Mission

Over 25 years ago, the founders of National Integrated Health Associates had a vision.     

They noticed that traditional health care was not giving people what they needed to get better. Appointments were rushed, and prescription medication was too often the only answer. Wash DC integrative doctors holistic dentists

How could we help people more?

What if we created a place that offered people the best of integrative medicine and biological dentistry under one roof?

A place of healing that fosters healthy living and combines the best medicine and proven therapies from around the world?

Our doctors and dentists would not be insurance-driven, but patient-centered, and would take the time to really listen to patients and get to the root cause of their health issues. With a proper diagnosis and education, we could help them on their journey towards optimum health.

With that as the core mission, the founders started National Integrated Health Associates, or NIHA, as it is more commonly known.  Our goal is to provide patients of all ages with comprehensive, integrative medical and dental care, and respect the innate healing wisdom of the body in the process.

Our Story

Since 1995, our team has included biological dentists, integrative and functional medicine physicians, naturopaths, a chiropractor, a physical therapist and other skilled and experienced holistic professionals. Some of our doctors and dentists are considered pioneers and experts in their respective fields. One of the highlights in our long history, and a principle of integrative medicine, is adding a full-service lab where patients can get IV treatment and advanced lab testing needed to diagnose the root cause of a health issue.

When we started, the hazards of chemicals, plastics, pollution, silver fillings and processed food were not common knowledge. Maybe we were a little ahead of the curve. But now, thankfully, most of our patients are well-educated on the impact of diet, chemicals and lifestyle factors on their health. Other patients come to us because traditional medical care for chronic disease just doesn’t seem to be working, and they want more options. A natural or holistic and integrative approach is important for wellness, disease prevention and disease management, and finding a caring medical partner to help make the shift to an integrative approach can be the difference between short-term improvements and long-term better health.

Dr. Mark McClure, a pioneer in holistic & biological dentistry, is one of the founders and dentists. With his vast knowledge and expertise, Dr. McClure has had the privilege of treating patients from all over the United States.

The founders have created an environment where the greatest joy for all of us comes from seeing patients get better.
