About Our Mercury Safe Dental Practice
Dr. Inna Shimanovsky's "Mercury Safe Dentist" office is located in Oregon City, OR. She practices holistic, mercury free (amalgam silver filling free) and mercury safe dentistry and is dedicated to the practice of holistic, healthy dentistry. Her goal is to treat her patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with her patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health. She fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
Holistic/Biological dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Because of her advanced training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Shimanovsky takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science and technical experience with a deep concern for her patients' physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Shimanovsky 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 Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD), the Holistic Dental Association (HDA), 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. Shimanovsky 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 she is fully qualified to safely remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings.
