Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling Free), Mercury Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. Pierre Larose's office is mercury-free (amalgam-free) and mercury-safe and he is dedicated to the practice of healthy dentistry. His goal is to treat his patients in the most healthy, 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. Larose is aware that mercury vapor and dental infections can have a negative impact on overall health. Because of this concern, 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 based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations. For more information about why we use safe removal protocols and an explanation of what they are, Click Here.
The IAOMT has developed rigorous standards for safely removing mercury amalgam dental fillings by reducing the unnecessary and excessive exposure to mercury released from these fillings. The IAOMT's recommendations are known as the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).
At this time, Dr. Larose is one of a small number of IAOMT members who qualifies as a SMART Certified IAOMT dentist. With the SMART designation you can be confident that Dr. Larose is fully qualified to safely remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings.
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, we offer a wide range of treatment options. Dr. Larose 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.
Whole Body Dental Philosophy
This Whole Body philosophy stresses the use of safe biocompatible dental materials whenever possible. He also works closely with highly qualified health professionals to assist him in his efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. His Health-Focused approach to holistic dentistry means that he treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will effect the entire body.
Dr. Larose believes that continuing education is a powerful tool that allows him to give you and your family the best, state-or-the-art dental care. Each year he takes many hours of continuing education courses and he has advanced training in many areas of holistic, cosmetic and conventional dentistry.

A Note from Dr. Tom:
I know Dr. Larose personally and he is a very highly trained, experienced and dedicated holistic dentist who is mercury free and mercury safe. I am in full agreement with his approach to Holistic Dentistry and am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and his effort to educate his patients. He utilizes his knowledge and training when designing dental treatment plans for his patients.
His advanced and on-going training in holistic, cosmetic and traditional dentistry and his concern for the safe removal of amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them. He has been one of the leaders in promoting mercury free and environmentally safe dentistry and I appreciate what he has accomplished.
I know that if I lived in Quebec he would be my dentist and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring health focused and mercury free dentist. Dr. Larose is a Past-President of the highly regarded International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and also a Charter Member of my International Association of Mercury safe Dentists (IAMSD).
I encourage you to visit his very informative website to learn more about his philosophy of mercury free and holistic dentistry. When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and say hello to him from me. Thanks!
