There are so many assumptions we have on parenting. Other than parents should know their children well, it is the belief that they have it all figured out, and they do not need any support. However, this is not the case for many parents. This is why Dr. Staci Whitman created Happi Health, not only as a holistic full-body health program dedicated to families and children, but as well as providing support and information in ways that help parents become more capable and competent.
As a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist in Portland, Oregon, Dr. Staci conceived the company as a dental clinic but went on to transition to a functional, holistic pediatric dental practice. Since then, she received overflowing support and positive feedback from parents and families – even getting so many calls – coming from in and out of Portland. In fact, many families travel from across the world just to see Dr. Staci.
When she realized that so many parents are looking for ways on how to lead a cleaner life, along with prevention information, she knew she needed to do something.
“I’m so passionate about educating. It’s what gets me out of bed every morning,” Dr. Staci shares. So, she figured out a way to reach more people and create a healthier world through Happi Health.
Happi Health’s approach to health and wellness is the first of its kind. Holistic care means looking at the body as a whole – mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially – and understanding that all these aspects affect your overall health. Her approach is empowering families through education and information on what they can do to take care of their own well-being better. She also makes holistic recommendations to help guide individuals and families to optimal health.
“While a patient may feel physical pain, this pain may be a result of another part of the body. Everything is connected,” explains Dr. Staci.
For her, diet is the key to overall health. She wants to be able to advocate for getting healthier food into schools and communities, as well as change the way foods are marketed before it reaches the homes. She is looking forward to reaching out to more communities soon. Clinical dentistry is something she is so passionate about, and so, she will be more active in engaging with more families and parents soon.
There are so many things that Dr. Staci wants to do, and one of those is to contribute to her practice by creating a functional dentistry residency program with a focus on a full-body, holistic approach. Not only for her own discovery along the way, but this vision is fuelled by how many lives, families, and parents, she has changed. To incorporate holistic elements into dental practices with fewer hurdles along the way will soon be possible, and that is pioneered by no other than Dr. Staci, herself.
Happi Health includes initiatives such as mouth and tooth health, pacifier and thumb-sucking programs, airway intervention guidance, recipes, meal planning, and nutritional guidance, tailored hygiene instructions for bedtime battles or personal improvements, access to product lists, educational sheets, parental support and lifestyle tips, among a few.
Indeed, parents need this kind of initiative designed to promote the flow of resources and information that not everyone is talking about to help them strengthen the growth and development of their children on their own.To learn more about Happi Health, visit their website.
