I cracked a tooth while in Florida and called for an appointment. NIHA was able to see me the next day. They were also able to repair the tooth with minimal work and cost. Dr McClure and his staff are the best. Highly recommend them for excellent dental needs. 2021

Dr. McClure was a hero

Just a note to say a very earnest thank you to your office and Dr. McClure for making a radical impact on a human life or two. 

I’ve been coming to the office with my kids for just a few months and have been impressed overall and pleased with the quality of care in general. It was what I was hoping for from a medical/wellness perspective.   But the warm, can-do, positive minded, supportive staff are a breath of fresh air and cherry on top.  

As a single mom, the cost of dental care has been overwhelming.  And I’m not sure where the money will come from everytime I run my card, but I trust it will keep showing up.  I’m also simultaneously aware of my good fortune, my privilege and relative good health - that there are so many people far less resourced and in much greater need of than I.   I  was taking a deep breath into that trust as I was checking out a few weeks ago and thought to just ask if Dr. McClure, NIHA ever does ‘charity’ work. 

As I asked, I had someone in mind who is working hard in recovery after a fairly traumatic 25 years of trauma and resulting alcohol and substance abuse. The hard life impacted his smile (on the outside and inside) and he was pretty sure he would need significant dental care to restore his smile (and zeal for life).  The  cost of which would be insurmountable for him.

I’ve been blown away by the response to this request.  The staff said a quick yes to my question and booked an appointment for my friend Miles on the spot. And last week Dr. McClure was a hero. Providing expert care, radical compassion and unexpected generosity, he deeply restored confidence on many levels for Miles.  This is not a small gift.  It is the gift of being able to live life with more vitality, openness and integrity. 

So, thank you.   You are making huge impacts.  We’ll be in and out of the office in the coming months (and years). Please let me know if there is anyway I can support the success of NIHA.

Warmly, D. Quynn, Founder, SOL Yoga Studio, 2021

 

Dr. McClure is exceptionally competent

Dr. McClure and his staff are great! I traveled from a rural area of PA to Washington DC for my appointment and was surprised and pleased to be treated with such warmth and kindness from the “big city” people. They know their stuff too as everyone easily answered all my questions. Dr. McClure is exceptionally competent and skillful yet he’s a down to earth guy, so I felt more relaxed and at ease.

Dental and Dr. McClure, helping the body heal itself

Have you ever experienced love at your dentist's office?  That's what I experience every time I visit the office of Mark McClure, DDS, at National Integrated Health Associates (NIHA).  When I first met Dr. McClure in December 2019, he did what no dentist (and no other physician of any kind) has ever done:  He took my hands, looked me in the eye, and said, "I'm so happy to meet you" (or words to that effect).  I was smitten.  I've now been through 5 procedures with him between January and April of this year:  mercury removal, damaged tooth repair via crown, bridge removal, new crown on bridge anchor tooth, and extraction of root canal tooth.  For each procedure, Dr. McClure was present and caring.

In particular regarding the extraction:  I was very afraid of having the extraction and put it off for months. Though I accepted Dr. McClure's assessment that the root canal tooth was leaching toxins into my body and his recommendation to extract it, I'm very against invasive procedures, especially removing body parts!  He never pushed me to do it - just educated me with stacks of materials.  I came to my own conclusion and did it.

As the extraction was about to begin, I expressed my worry and began asking him what the steps of the procedure would be.  Dr. McClure looked me in the eye and said, "I'm a good surgeon."   I realized in that moment that I could trust him, so I gave the go-ahead.  He prayed with me.  I asked for someone to hold my hand.  Dr. McClure said, "Shirley is a professional hand-holder."  He called her in, and she held my hands tightly throughout the entire 20-minute procedure. By the way, the procedure, which took place 3 weeks ago, went well, and I'm healing fine.

I could go on and on with other examples of Dr. McClure's care.  If anyone wants to contact me directly for more, I'll be happy to oblige.  I'll end with another question:  Have you ever been to a dentist's office where your concerns were sincerely listened to and assuaged by accessible staff members, no matter how many times you called or emailed?  I hadn't, until I went to Dr. McClure's office.  Dental practice manager Laurie Parrinello, dental associates Nicole terElst and Scott Richards, dental technicians Kia and Alem, and the above-mentioned Shirley Butler, have all been way more than 100% supportive.

Finally, I'm not even mentioning the holistic nature of the practice - that would be a whole other email. Suffice it to say that It's such a relief to visit a medical office that speaks my language of helping the body heal itself. Thank you, NIHA! 5/20

 
 
 

Dr. McClure and Dental Team

I am so grateful for the care that I received from Dr. McClure and the phenomenal team. I was emotionally overcome by the end results of my treatment. I was immediately able to reap the benefits of the procedures for my chronic bacterial circulatory infection and now, untold, afflictions are curtailed. And if that was not enough, I was chartered to and from your headquarters with divine intervention.

This opportunity with Dr. McClure and team fortifies my body to continue my duties free of premature exhaustion, enhanced gaiety, and overall healing of my mind, body, and spirit.

My inspired duties are to employ daily, empirical, multi-sensory learning outcomes for our at-risk youth in East Orange, NJ as a special education teacher. These objectives are not easily implemented as the road is unpaved, the expenses are not allocated in the school budget and the necessity of training my assistants are components of my professional mission. The success or immediate results of these world class objectives is the fuel needed to propel our inspired team and create an environment similar to your office. For it is truly a miracle, the effects are immeasurable and ultimately who we are as Americans.

In my case, all of this is true with the root canal tooth, the four cavitations, and the chronic bacterial infection; tears flood my eyes imagining what is possible. Now that I’m am free of these conditions, during the summer, I will dwell in the possibilities preparing to employ our greatest attempts to date for the 2019 - 2020 school year and beyond. With all the warmth and gratitude I can covey via this email; thank you!

In closing, I controlled my desire to rejoice teary eyed and bear hug Dr. McClure and team, it is my intention for this note to deliver that sentiment and hugs. 6/19

Dr. McClure and Laurie DeRosa

My dental visit was amazing! My teeth feel clean and healthy. The use of the microscope to analyze the bacteria in my mouth was interesting and helped me to ge a fuller understanding of my dental health. 6/17

Dr. McClure, If you are looking for a practice you can trust...

I want to tell you all about our experience with Dr. McClure because I know taking kids to a dentist is a big fear for most parents. Plus it was really hard to find information on the right dentist for us in the DC area so I figured other parents would find this useful.

I absolutely love this practice and now my entire family goes there. Find out what to expect and why you should go there, especially if you have kids. 

Dr. McClure, No dental pain!

"No dental pain! The dentist and asst. were very kind, gentle and helped me to relax."

Dr. McClure

"Dr. McClure and Staff,

I had my 6 mercury amalgams taken out approximately 5 weeks ago and it was the best dental experience of my life.

The protocol of detoxing first along with allergy testing  gave me greater confidence in NIHA Dental caring for my needs.

The whole procedure was seamless to me. Upon driving back to work I realized my head felt lighter and I didn't even have the sick feeling that I usually get from the novocaine.

The followup was great and the fact NIHA Dental educates the patient to do continued detoxification because of the mercury as well as other environmental factors that will detract from our health.

I also have had slight restless leg syndrome; no symptoms have occurred since my fillings were taken out.  Mercury free and I'm loving it.

Many thanks for your dedicated service of healing!" 10/15

Dr. McClure was amazing and friendly with my 4 year old son and treated a major cavity that needed to be done with loving care.

Dr. McClure, a miracle dentist

I love coming here for my dental care. The staff is friendly and really care. Dr. McClure is a great dentist. Anyone who can remove 14 mercury fillings with no novocaine (at my request) and have it be pain free is a miracle dentist. The dental care is great.

Dr. McClure

Dr. McClure and the staff at NIHA are the best. I broke a tooth 2 days before leaving on vacation but they got me in and fixed the tooth beautifully.

Dr. McClure

I have found Dr. McClure to be an excellent dentist. I only wish I had gotten to him sooner. I had consistent bad luck with dentists until I got to Dr. McClure. In contrast to my past experiences, I found him to be very able, quick, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. McClure

Dr. McClure and entire dental staff: Thank you so much for your kindness, patience and courtesy. I am petrified of dental offices and I really appreciate all that you did for me. The care received from NIHA is irreplaceable in Washington DC. K.C.

Dr. McClure

I like that Dr. McClure is conservative in his dental approach and does excellent work.P.M.

Dr. McClure

Dr. McClure is very personable, knowledgeable and is a true professional. Dr. McClure's supporting staff was very helpful and pleasant. They all work well as a team and care about patient comfort and well-being. Dr. McClure and his staff certainly made my dental appointment relaxing, pleasant and pain free and the skill level of everyone is excellent. A great dental experience! K.N.
