Advantages of Choosing a Member Dentist Who is Mercury Free And Mercury Safe
My Amalgam Free and Mercury Safe dentist dentist directory includes dentists who are also members of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD).
There are a number of distinct advantages of choosing Mercury Safe dentists, the most important being is that member dentists commit to the following :
• The member dentist is Amalgam Free and will not place mercury amalgam fillings;
• The member dentist will use a safe amalgam removal procedure that protects the patient, as much as possible, from unnecessary and excessive exposure to mercury during filling removal. Not all mercury safe dentists use the same removal protocols so always ask the dentist if you are unsure about any procedure he or she is using;
• Every treatment or service offered by a member dentist will be available to the patient;
• The member dentist will be trained in every treatment and therapy he or she offers;
• The member dentist will, if requested, provide patients with a source of information about the health hazards of mercury amalgam fillings, mercury detoxification, and oral hygiene education;
• The member dentist will, if requested, provide patients with a source of information about the relationship between oral and overall health; and
• The dentist pledges to practice with integrity and honesty.

Video Proof that Mercury Vapor is Released from Amalgam Fillings
For those of you who want visual proof that mercury vapor is released from amalgam fillings I encourage you to view my YouTube Video, Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth. This amazing video clearly demonstrates that not only is mercury vapor released from amalgams but also quantitatively demonstrates the actual amount of mercury released from an amalgam by a common means of stimulation, tooth brushing.
As you'll see in the Video, brushing a medium sized amalgam filling will release more mercury vapor than allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace! The Video also compares the amount of mercury vapor released to other forms of stimulation, by the patient and at the dental office - and what you can do about it!
There are many scientific studies that prove this, but it's one thing to read about it and yet another to actually see how much mercury vapor being released from an amalgam filling by an EPA approved mercury vapor analyzer. The short video also offers evidence of the toxicity of mercury and is well worth the few minutes of your time it takes to view my YouTube Video: Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth. Don't forget to tell your friends and family about this video - or a dentist you'd like to help educate about this subject. You can also access the video by searching YouTube for either Tom McGuire, DDS or The Poison in Your Teeth.
Mercury Free Dentistry: Associations and Organizations
There are a number of biological and holistic dental organizations whose goals are to bridge the gap between oral and overall health, promote mercury free dentistry and improve the quality and service of dental treatment. Dr. McGuire is including the ones he's most familiar with here so you will understand why he is comfortable recommending any mercury free dentist who belongs to these Associations/Organizations and also are members of his organizations. They are:
International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT)
The IAOMT is a membership organization for dental, medical and research professionals who seek to promote Mercury Free (Amalgam Free) and Mercury Safe dentistry, and raise the standards of scientific biocompatibility in the dental practice. The IAOMT is an organization whose members have set very high ethics code and rely on science to support their position.
The IAOMT is not only active in protecting the dental patient from exposure to mercury vapor released from amalgam fillings, and other toxic substances used in the dental practice, but in requiring the FDA to ban these toxic fillings. It also seeks to have the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulate and monitor the dental office for mercury, protecting the patient, dentist, staff, and the environment, from unnecessary and excessive exposure to mercury at the dental office. I highly recommend that dentists who are considering becoming Amalgam Free and Mercury Safe contact this organization.

International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM)
The International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine, or IABDM, is committed to the education of holistic dentists, physicians and health practitioners in the art and science of biological dentistry. Biological practice is socially, spiritually, ecologically and environmentally aware. Its practitioners honor the right to informed consent. They know the human body is more than a collection of parts that can be mechanically worked on in isolation. Seeing us as whole, unified beings, they respect each person’s individual uniqueness and dignity. IABDM members are committed to providing the patient with the knowledge, tools and power to take charge of his or her health.
Members of the IABDM are also mercury free and mercury safe and Dr. McGuire has a great deal of respect for the Academy, its approach to biological and mercury free dentistry, and its philosophy. He highly recommends a IABDM member, particularly one who is also a member of the IAMSD. If you are a dentist and are looking for an organization that will help you learn more about the benefits of biological dentistry, for your practice and patients, and Dr. McGuire highly recommends becoming a member and suggests you visit their website,
The Institute of Nutritional Dentistry (IND)
The Institute of Nutritional Dentistry is a teaching organization that is unique in many ways. It offers seminars for dentists that are specifically designed to teach them how to practice Whole Body and Healthy Dentistry. The seminars provides dentists with access to the latest information on all aspects of nutritional dentistry, innovative technology, products, and biocompatible dental materials, to name a few.

The Institute of Systemic Dentistry (ISD)
The Institute of Systemic Dentistry is the East Coast version of the Institute of Nutritional Dentistry and is also a teaching organization that is unique in many ways. It offers similar seminars for dentists that are specifically designed to teach them how to practice Whole Body and Healthy Dentistry. The seminars provides dentists with access to the latest information on all aspects of nutritional dentistry, innovative technology, products, and biocompatible dental materials, to name a few. Dr. McGuire personally knows a number of the Institute’s founders and member dentists, and he has a great deal of respect for the Institute and its goals.
If you find an ISD dentist who also belongs to the IAMFD you can feel confident that he or she will be mercury free and you will be in good hands. For more information please go to its website at: www.naturaldentistry.org
Holistic Dental Association (HDA)
The Holistic Dental Association (HDA) was formed by a group of dentists who wished to establish an organization that would provide a forum for the development and sharing of health promoting therapies. Today, more and more individuals are assuming greater responsibility for their own health. In this regard, the HDA has assumed a primary obligation to provide information and guidance to those persons seeking to participate in their own health care and to help in the continuing education of dental and health practitioners who have a desire to expand their knowledge and awareness.
This organization is concerned with the oral and overall health of their patients and Dr. McGuire has a very high regard for it and its members. He believes that if you find a dentist who is a member of the HAD and also of the IAMFD you will be assured of a dental practitioner who is mercury free, mercury safe, knowledgeable, and of high integrity. For more information about this organization please go to, www.holisticdental.org.

Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI)
This is another organization Dr. McGuire respects. This Institute is one of the world's premier post-graduate dental teaching centers and was established to educate, guide and support dentists in the delivery of the most advanced patient-based care possible and many of the dentists who graduate from the Institute have mercury free practices. Because the LVI stresses advanced education in cosmetic dentistry LVI dentists,who are also mercury free, are experts at replacing mercury amalgam fillings with the latest in composite, and other appropriate dental fillings, inlays, and crowns. Replacing amalgam fillings with composites is very technique sensitive and LVI graduates are highly skilled at this procedure. Because of this Dr. McGuire highly recommends a IAMSD member dentist who is also an LVI graduate. An LVI member dentist will include this information with in the Key Information section of the database listing; so be sure to look for it.
