Meet Dr. Moore
Dr. Moore serves patients every day with the motivation to deliver the greatest value as a human being that he can during his lifetime. He will tell you that the movie, Doc Hollywood, really resonated with him. In fact, the idea of being a small-town doctor inspired him to take on a medical career.
Eventually, Dr. Moore’s penchant for life-long learning and his investigative nature led him to examine the root causes of disease. After fifteen years of practicing conventional medicine, this quest tuned him into the study and implementation of integrative and functional medicine.
Dr. Moore believes the human body has a tremendous capacity to heal itself, but we have unfortunately created an environment that is often mismatched with our genetics. Working with patients from an integrative perspective, Dr. Moore looks at genetics in combination with environment and lifestyle to help create better genetic alignment.
“When I get a patient that has seen a lot of doctors before me and they think there’s nothing left to do but submit to exploratory surgery, I find it most rewarding when we can turn that around. Through the use of biologics, nutraceuticals, lifestyle changes, exercise and meditation, it is very gratifying to see them coming in with good color, smiling and doing so much better.”
As a member of the Orofacial and Dental Implant medical team, Dr. Moore adds what may be his greatest strength: the ability to think outside the box and analyze a patient’s underlying conditions. As a result, he is sometimes referred to as ‘House’. His ultimate result is to bring about his patients’ autonomy and a greater quality of life. Said another way, he wants them to “become non-patients”.
A perpetual student, Dr. Moore is currently delving deep into the study of cancer. Using knowledge that has been preserved for centuries and piecing it together with new research from all over the world, he hopes to clear a pathway to better health that has been obscured by the pharmaceutical and food industries. He believes working with Mother Nature in simple and proven ways will provide greater longevity and a higher quality of life for all.
Dr. Moore enjoys spending time with his daughter and son. He coaches under-17 boys’ competitive soccer and loves saltwater flats fishing and hiking.
