Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal Protocols
Dr. Jones 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. His team believes it is important to protect the patient, the environment, and themselves from exposure to excessive mercury during the amalgam removal process. To accomplish this, we utilize safe & proven removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.

Holistic/Biological Dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated oral structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, Nashville Restorative Dentistry offers a wide range of treatment options. Dr. Jones also takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, modern technology, and years of experience with a deep concern for his patients' physical health and emotional well-being and comfort.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
Dr. Jones belongs to a number of highly regarded dental organizations, including the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and my Mercury Safe Dentist Association (IAMSD). These organizations encourage taking a integrative, whole-body approach to dental treatment and promote patient education. His approach to healthy dentistry includes the understanding that you cannot be healthy without good oral health and he takes this into consideration when planning his patients dental treatment.
I consider Dr. Jones to be a caring, highly trained, skilled and experienced dentist. His commitment to quality, health-focused dentistry, his ongoing dedication to continuing education, and his concern for his patients health and well-being, makes him ideally suited to safely remove and replace mercury amalgam fillings.
Dr. Jones is a charter member of my Mercury Safe Dentist Association and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a mercury free, mercury safe, and compassionate dentist.
