What is your mouth trying to tell you…
with its tooth decay, jaw clenching
or gum recession?
You’ve tried the fancy toothpastes, the expensive dentists (maybe even a weird diet) but your mouth is still keeping you awake at night, saying ‘there must be another way’.
You know in your heart that there must be more you can do for your own oral health, but you also know you can’t do it all by yourself.
So why would a Holistic Tooth Fairy help resolve your immediate symptoms and prevent future ones, when nothing else has really stuck?
Holistic Tooth Fairies have been in your shoes
We remember the sinking feeling of dread when yet another toothache starts throbbing… again.
We remember panic attacks in the dental chair and regret dental procedures that we were too afraid to refuse.
We remember the sense of overwhelm when searching for an alternative to another bout with the dental drill.
Most of all, we remember not being sure that anything could REALLY work for a never-ending cycle of tooth decay.
That’s why Meliors started the Holistic Tooth Fairy in 2017, as an online oral health coaching service to support people all over the world to prevent and heal tooth decay and gum disease for more positive dental experiences and outcomes.
Since then hundreds Holistic Tooth Fairy clients have saved hundreds of at-risk teeth, thousands in dental fees and untold hours of pain and distress.
– Fillings avoided and root canals averted
– Cavities remineralized
– Receding gums regrown and gum pocket depths reduced
– Clenching and grinding stopped and nightguards abandoned
– Loose teeth stabilized and jaw bone density increased
– Mouth breathing habits switched to consistent nose breathing
– Dental fears overcome and dental communication improved
– Necessary dental procedures faced with confidence and followed by uncomplicated recovery
– Chronic tooth decay halted and chronic gum inflammation relieved
– Plaque and tartar diminished requiring shorter, less-frequent hygienist cleanings
*Disclaimer: These results were achieved by some, but not all, past clients. We do not guarantee that anyone else will
achieve the same results.
After using Meliors’ holistic strategies for 3 months, my teeth have become much less sensitive, their surface more ‘shiny’ and clean. The dentist was astonished to find a strong healthy layer under the cavity so she could fill it instead of a root canal!
you to keep your teeth!
Meet Lead Coach Meliors Simms, the original Holistic Tooth Fairy
Do you remember your first major dental work? Mine was a root canal at age 17. Looking back, I can see that it wasn’t just caused by my adolescent diet of chocolate and orange juice, but also the dislocation of leaving home to travel rough for months at a time.
By my early twenties, I had a somewhat settled lifestyle and a much more wholesome diet, but the following decades were plagued with constant cavities, toothaches, sensitivity and another FIVE root canals. Eventually I became so traumatized by dentists that I started having panic attacks: in the dental chair, in the waiting room and even once under general anesthetic.
‘It’s not fair’, I would rage, immobilized with pain and handing over all my disposable income to dentists. ‘I brush and floss every day, I shouldn’t have the worst teeth in the world.’
Then, in July 2012, I was prescribed my seventh root canal and something inside me shifted.
Instead of helplessly accepting the dentist’s advice, I decided to do my own research. I found Ramiel Nagel’s book Cure Tooth Decay: Heal & Prevent Cavities with Nutrition (aff) and within days of implementing just a few of his dietary recommendations my root canal symptoms settled down completely. It felt amazing to have found a cure and I wanted more. I gradually started exploring and experimenting with other aspects of holistic teeth healing, beyond the basics of oral hygiene and beyond the bounds of Nagel’s nutritional protocol.
Fast forward to today and I’ve never had that root canal (or any other). My teeth have stopped crumbling, chipping and cracking. Plaque has no place in my mouth. I no longer hesitate to eat hot, cold or crunchy foods. I’ve saved thousands by avoiding unneeded dental work and I’m proud of my smile.

Meet Larnie Bell, Apprentice Coach
I remember being singled out at school from the age of 6 for trips to the dental nurse aka the ‘murder house’. I felt dread, anxiety and fear trembling throughout my body. The shame I felt as the other children taunted ‘you’re going to the murder house’ was almost as traumatising as the painful drilling to my teeth.
As I grew into adulthood, I continued to feel anxiety every time I went to the dentist, so I tried not to go very often. Being told I needed a root canal or filling brought up those old feelings of being out of control, bullied and shamed.
However, in the rest of my adult life I became more and more confident to assert my own mana (power). I let go of the chains of childhood trauma and embraced life’s lessons. As I clawed back my own sovereignty, knowing my worth made me passionate about social justice and informed consent.
As a Holistic Tooth Fairy client I learned first hand that natural oral health coaching can be effective and powerful. My own toothache disappeared and my general health and wellbeing improved.
Meliors worked with me to release the internalised colonialism that was embodied in my mouth. Healing my teeth freed my voice so that I can express the power of my tupuna (ancestors).
Now I’m excited to work with you to develop transformative healing protocols for your unique needs.
