Dawn Ewing, ND – Dr. Dawn Ewing is a naturopathic practitioner in Houston, Texas, executive director of the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM), and author of Let the Tooth Be Known. She began her career as a dental hygienist after graduating from the University of Texas Dental School in 1988 and was eventually appointed to the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners by the governor, serving two terms. She became a nationally registered paramedic and spent 12 years on a 911 ambulance and four years in international air ambulance transport. She began teaching CPR to the public, advanced cardiac life support to health care providers and became an affiliate faculty member of the American Heart Association in 1987. She was drawn back into dentistry by a biological dentist who was looking for someone with knowledge of the body as a whole, not just the mouth. This new excitement led her to return to school for a doctorate in naturopathy, a PhD in holistic nutrition and a doctorate in integrative medicine at Capital University of Integrative Medicine.
