Centers for Healing is the brainchild of Dr. Blanche Grube who began practicing dentistry almost 40 years ago. Dr. Blanche was practicing conventional dentistry when she started her career. A chance meeting with a patient, led her to Dr. Hal Huggins, whom became her mentor. Eventually they joined forces and developed the Huggins-Grube Protocol.

Dr. Blanche discovered early in her work with 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 DNA testing and biocompatibility testing. 

Prior to the death of Dr. Huggins, he passed his torch to Dr. Blanche and she is dedicated to continuing his legacy through her work with DNA ConneXions, Biocomp Labs, Huggins Applied Healing, and Centers for Healing.

Centers for Healing, Scranton, owned and operated by Dr. Blanche Grube, DMD, is the central office of the Centers for Healing network of associated centers.

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


The philosophy and mission of Centers for Healing is to educate both patients and doctors about the importance of oral health and how it affects whole body health.

Dr. Blanche understood the significance early on, that engaging the patient’s participation in their own health and wellness would greatly enhance patient recovery. As a lifelong student, Dr. Blanche has a deep understanding of the mouth/body connection and why each and every step of The Huggins-Grube Protocol is imperative to achieve the most beneficial outcome for the patient. Like Dr. Huggins, she felt it necessary to share this knowledge by training other dentists, medical doctors, health care practitioners, and patients in this new paradigm of dentistry.

Members of Centers for Healing are dedicated to following The Huggins-Grube Protocol and are committed to continue the legacy of Dr. Hal Huggins by following the Hippocratic Oath, “First do No Harm.”
