After working in a few different dental offices and clinics, Dr. Rockwell focused on starting his own practice. In 2007, he and his wife Tiana moved to Nevada County with a dream to build a state-of-the-art dental practice dedicated to the health and wellness of the clients that it served. Today, that practice is The Dental Wellness Center of Grass Valley (formerly Rockwell Family Dental).

Dr. Matt Archer

The Protocol for Health: Seven Unexpected Solutions
Dr. Matt Archer is a second-generation chiropractor who has practiced in Nevada City for over fifteen years. By taking a skeptical approach to a popular but controversial technique called applied kinesiology, he has developed a breakthrough protocol that builds on that technique and an innovative form of manual muscle testing that guides patients to incredibly effective, foundational solutions. The technique and Protocol reveal, and resolve, some of the most confounding health issues of our time. By first addressing that virtually everyone is zinc deficient, which results in weak stomach acid, other deficiencies, and pervasive chronic intestinal infection, the mystery of the gut microbiome (SIBO, candida, parasites, etc.) can be resolved quite simply. This sets the stage for unprecedented absorption of simple, food-based nutrients, and the management of food sensitivities, inflammation, blood sugar issues, and optimal exercise. Under these conditions, people are able to heal most health conditions. The Protocol is challenging and surprisingly simple. The results are unprecedented.
