Dr. Hal Huggins passed away peacefully at his Colorado Springs home Saturday, November 29, 2014. He was 77.

Dr. Huggins rightfully earned the title of "Elder Statesman" of Holistic Dentistry. He is also known as a leading pioneer and the "Grand Father" of identifying and treating medical problems caused by toxic dental materials.

Dr. Huggins received his DDS degree over 50 years ago at the University of Nebraska and practiced for decades in Colorado Springs. Continuing his education in 1990, he received his post-doc master's degree from the University of Colorado.

He presented over 2500 lectures in 47 of the US States and 16 foreign countries. He authorized many books, wrote over 50 articles and gave over 1000 radio/TV interviews, including 60 Minutes Australia (1989) and 60 Minutes New Zealand (2007).

As founder of the Multi-Discipline Alliance of Professionals he ensured continuing education for dentists desiring to learn the Huggins dental protocol. Training includes helping their patients avoid and recover from ailments caused by harmful dental procedures.

Dr. Huggins was a caring and sensitive man who dedicated his life's work to helping humanity. He was loved by his patients, professional colleagues and staff for his compassion, generosity and willingness to give of himself.

His greatest joy was helping those on their quest to recover from the many degenerative diseases caused by silver (mercury) fillings and heavy metal toxicity from other dental materials.

He is survived by his three children, David Huggins and Chip Elizabeth, both of Colorado Springs, and Holden "Denny" Conover of Alaska; two grandchildren, Patricia and Michael Conover; and one great grandchild.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, December 6, 2014 at 1:00 pm at the Center for Spiritual Living, 3685 Jeannine Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80917.
