Dr. Usama Kamal's office is mercury-free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury-safe and he is dedicated to the practice of healthy dentistry. His goal is to treat his patients in the most caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with his patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health. He fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
Safe Mercury Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Kamal is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, and TMJ (bite) problems can have a negative impact on oral and overall health. Because of these concerns, we focus on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings in a safe way. For information about why it's important to use a mercury safe dentist, Click Here.
To accomplish this, we utilize removal protocols for safely removing amalgam fillings based on the recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and New Directions Dentistry (NDD), which has set the standard for practicing mercury safe dentistry.
New Directions Dentistry Course: How to Make Your Practice Mercury Safe
Dr. Usama has completed the NDD course, and received his Certification, in How to Make Your Practice Mercury Safe - Minimizing Occupational Exposure to Mercury in the Dental Office. This is the only course of its kind offered to dentists and qualifies him to remove mercury amalgam fillings safely, protecting himself, his staff, his patients and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury vapor at the dental office. It also qualifies him to be a Green Dental Practice regarding mercury. For more information about why we use safe removal protocols and an explanation of what they are, Click Here.

NEW! Dr. Tom McGuire's new YouTube Video, Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth conclusively proves that amalgam/silver fillings not only release toxic mercury vapor - but that the common act of brushing just one amalgam filling - will release more mercury than allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace! It also tells you what you can do about it. Click Here to watch this amazing video demonstration - and don’t forget to tell your friends and family!

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
Dr. Kamal has taken over the practice of Dr. Matthew Young. I knew Dr. Young for many years and had great respect for him. I know Dr, Kamal to be an extraordinarily dedicated, well-trained trained, experienced and caring holistic dentist. I support his philosophy and approach to mercury safe, healthy dentistry and I agree with him.
He is passionate about healthy dentistry and continues to advance his dental skills by pursuing continuing education programs at the highest level and strives to practice safe and healthy holistic/biological dentistry. His office is probably the safest in regard to occupationally mercury safety and he is a pioneer in this area.
Dr. Kamal is fully aware of the effect that oral health can have on overall health and treats his patients accordingly. His advanced training in holistic and cosmetic dentistry and his concern for safely removing mercury amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them.
He is also a Charter Member of the IAMSD and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking an experienced, caring and qualified mercury-safe dentist. I encourage you to visit his website to learn more about this exceptional dentist and his philosophy of healthy dentistry. When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and say hello to him from me. Thanks!
