The Huggins-Grube Dental Center

Dr. Blanche D. Grube has been practicing dentistry for more than forty years and was mentored by the late Dr. Hal Huggins. For many years, Drs. Huggins and Grube collaborated to create The Huggins–Grube Protocol.

Dr. Blanche not only continues this work, but she has also expanded on their original practice of restoring the mouth as holistically as possible. She does this by obtaining an extensive health and dental history, utilizing the latest technology, and by determining the bio-compatibility of dental restorative materials for the individual patient.

The Huggins-Grube Protocol

The Huggins-Grube Protocol is an integrated system that incorporates multiple safety factors to enhance immune recovery. The Huggins-Grube Protocol is devoted to providing not only education, but also alternatives to dental materials and procedures that may be connected to a variety of health issues.

It has indeed been proven that many of our chronic health problems have been caused by damage from dental fillings (mercury-based fillings), root canals, diet and environmental toxins. The damage from these toxins may accumulate in our body and cause a negative impact on our health and well-being.

Dr. Blanche D. Grube


A graduate of Queens College, C.U.N.Y, Blanche D. Grube received her doctorate from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1982 (now Rutgers University).

Dr. Blanche  holds a second doctorate in Integrative Medicine from Capital University of Integrative Medicine in Washington, D.C. She also received training in conscious sedation at Albert Einstein Hospital, New York and at St. Joseph’s Hospital, New Jersey. To this, she has added extensive training in homeopathy, nutrition, iridology, colon hydrotherapy, neural therapy and acupuncture.

She discovered early in her work with her mentor, Dr. Huggins, that if she followed his very specific protocol when treating patients, her patients’ health would improve. Dr. Huggins taught her, what is now referred to as the Huggins-Grube Protocol, which includes a complete dental revision. Prior to the death of Dr. Huggins, he passed his torch to Dr. Blanche and she is dedicated to continuing his life’s work through the Huggins-Grube Dental Center.

Dr. Blanche is a biological dentist and former President of the International Academy of Biological Dentistry & Medicine (IABDM); she holds a Mastership from the IABDM, a Fellowship from the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), The Institute of Natural Dentistry, and the Dental Association of Conscious Sedation.

Dr. Blanche has published peer-reviewed articles on various aspects of dentistry, and has lectured both, nationally and internationally. A successful businesswoman, she owns Huggins-Grube Dental Centers- Scranton, PA (Formally Centers for Healing) & Bluffton, SC, Biocomp Laboratories, DNA Connexions, Huggins Applied Healing, and will soon be launching the Huggins – Grube Institute, to honor Dr. Huggins and to preserve his legacy.

Dr. Huggins discusses passing the torch to Dr. Blanche during this touching 2014 interview.

Dr. John H. Grube has had a heart for healing since he was a young man. He became interested in nutrition while listening to a talk by a nutritionist who spoke of the importance of eating whole foods and staying away from processed foods for better health. This discussion set a new direction for his life back in the ‘70s. Dr. John Grube’s chiropractic practice is located in the same friendly homelike facility as Dr. Blanche’s dental practice. Dr. John brings his expertise in chiropractic and nutrition to the combined practices.

Dr. John Grube has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutrition from Queens College in New York City, he received his chiropractic doctoral degree in 1981. He and Dr. Blanche both received a second doctoral degree in Integrative Medicine from Capital University of Integrative Medicine in Washington, DC. Through these advanced studies combined with hundreds of hours of continuing education for close to 30 years Dr. John has amassed quite a set of skills to treat his patients.

Dr. John is a Master Muscle Tester and utilizes this non-evasive diagnostic tool to help create the best treatment plan across the spectrum of chiropractic manipulation, nutrition counseling and supplementation. He finds that his patients get the best results when he combines these three modalities in their treatment but emphasis that proper nutrition is key to healing the body.

Dr. John is continually looking for ways to serve his patients better. Whatever health problems a patient brings to Dr. John, whether they are structural, biochemical or psychological, he utilizes combined treatments to achieve healing.
