Meet The Team
Dr Elmar Jung
Dentist, Holistic, Biological, Integrative Dental Health Coach, Naturopath, Author, Podcaster, International Speaker, Founder of Dr Elmar Jung Dental Clinic
Dr Elmar Jung has been an advocate for holistic integrative dentistry ever since leaving Dental school nearly 35 years ago.
Early on, Elmar realized that treating symptoms is the most common approach that dentists and doctors take to tackle illnesses. Convinced that there must be more, he embarked on a remarkable journey to explore complementary diagnostic and treatment methods which offer a whole-person approach.
He is a qualified holistic Dentist with the German Association of Holistic Dentists, a Doctor of F.-X. Mayr Medicine, and a German Naturopath (Heilpraktiker).
Prior to moving to the UK to work with Drs Graeme & Lilian Munro-Hall, the UK’s pioneers in holistic dentistry, he ran two successful holistic practices in Germany and also worked at the prestigious Paracelsus-Clinic in Switzerland.
In 2012 he published his first book “Weapons of Plaque Destruction” together with Graeme Dinnen, on how to cure and prevent Gum Disease and Tooth Decay with an easy-to-learn blotting technique and a genius little toothbrush, the Blotting Brush.
Over the years, Dr Jung has witnessed first-hand, the damage that poor nutrition and toxic dentistry can do to a patient’s health and the transformational changes that happen once they get it right.
He supports his metal-free treatments with dental detoxification and supplementation protocols and advises his clients on a healthy mindset.
Dr Jung is passionate about his patients taking full responsibility for their health and wellbeing.
In April 2019 he launched his Bestseller book “Shut Your Mouth and Open Wide” and in 2020 he started “Elmar’s Tooth Talk – The Missing Link To Total Health” his Podcast about Holistic Dentistry.
In February 2022 in cooperation with ten health-conscious colleagues from BiP100, a private membership club of worldwide experts, he participated his chapter in the book “Success Secrets for Wellbeing”.
Since July 2022 he has retired from active dentistry focusing mainly on coaching on dental health challenges, naturopathy and wellbeing.
Elmar lives in the New Forest and still doesn’t fancy swimming with sharks.
He also lectures in the UK and internationally.
Dr Ana Velasco
Holistic & Biological Dentist, Myobrace & Homeoblock specialist
Dr Ana Velasco graduated from Rey Juan Carlos University (Madrid, Spain) with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery and has been practising dentistry for more than 10 years.
Whilst working for the NHS, Dr Velasco experienced first-hand, the limitations of traditional mainstream dentistry and the effects these limitations have on patients. This led her to develop a keen interest in holistic dentistry. As she learned more, the path that would fulfil her professional life became very clear. She then set herself the goal of becoming a biological dentist.
Dr Velasco began following Dr Jung and his teachings as she knew he was highly regarded in the field. As luck would have it, the stars eventually aligned presenting her with the opportunity to join Dr Jung’s team!
Dr Velasco has been with Dr Jung’s clinic since March 2022 and is undertaking all of Dr Jung’s clinical work, including safe amalgam removal using IAOMT’s SMART protocol as well as all surgical procedures and restoration work. She is also trained in the use of the CaviTAU Ultrasound scan. As our Lead Dentist, Dr Velasco conducts all initial consultations with Dr Jung.
Dr Velasco also offers the Myobrace orthodontic system for children and the Homeoblock treatment for adults. These methods naturally align teeth, and by redirecting jawbone growth and development, improves breathing and swallowing patterns. Ultimately this supports the ideal positioning of the teeth and eventually your overall wellbeing.
So far only two dental practices offer the Homeoblock treatment in the UK
As a mother of a little boy, Dr Velasco knows how important it is to make choices that benefit children and create a better world for them. Her warm, caring nature, patience, and delicate manner ensure a child-friendly dental experience for your little ones!
Dr Richard Pollock
Following graduation from the University of Dundee in 1999, Richard moved from native Scotland to practice and clinic ownership in London.
He has worked with several top London clinics, including Chelsea Dental Clinic and Harley Street Dental Clinic.
He now divides his time between work at these locations with other clinics across the capital and the south.
He quickly became interested in emerging dental technologies and holistic therapies to complement conventional treatment.
He also discovered a passion for detoxification dentistry, which has seen him free his practice from using potentially harmful metals and materials.
His patients benefit from complimentary dental treatments like platelet-rich fibrin, ozone therapy and IV nutritional therapy, which unite oral health with fuller day-to-day well-being.
His expertise with adult orthodontics led Richard to gain a diploma in orthodontics and later be invited to join Patrick Grossman’s world-leading multidisciplinary team to treat the temporomandibular joint disorder.
Richard’s extensive postgraduate training includes a certificate in implantology. He is experienced with single-day procedures and zirconia implants as part of his commitment to metal and toxicity-free dentistry.
His uniquely multidisciplinary experience and expertise have earned him key opinion leader roles with leading global dental technology names.
In his spare time, Richard enjoys hot Bikram yoga, a round of golf and playing the bagpipes – although not in the clinic!
We are delighted to have Richard joining our clinic and signing responsible for the placement of zirconia implants.

Sam Cooper is an expert in the field of psycho-spiritual development and bio-energetic healing with more than 25 years of experience. Sam’s passion for ‘what really makes us tick’ has fuelled her own extraordinary journey and led her to professionally train in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), coaching, psychotherapeutic counselling, hypnotherapy, and anatomy and physiology.
In addition, Sam’s training as a Master Healer over the course of many years culminated in 2012, when she underwent a powerful transformation during which she experienced the absolute and true nature of reality. As a wellbeing expert, Sam has an enriched combination of skills to optimise mind, body and spirit and with the formidable addition of the bio-photon re-alignment mirrors, she uses a form of kinesiology to communicate with the body in a powerful and insightful way, whilst teaching others how to do the same.
Sam’s research has led her to some profound discoveries some of which she shares in her sessions. She believes, that each and every one of us can tap into that innate wisdom and access our true potential in order to optimise health and wellbeing no matter what our outer reality reflects.
This exclusive treatment is part of Dr Jung’s “Wellness Protocol” which maximises the healing process before or after dental surgery. In addition, those interested in supporting their health and wellbeing through light, frequency and optimisation of Self may also apply.

Vicki’s previous administration roles in the Logistics industry and her keen interest in health and wellbeing are the perfect combination to complement Dr Jung’s Holistic Team.
