Dr. Paul Rubin's office is mercury free (amalgam silver filling-free) and mercury safe since 1981. He is dedicated to the practice of healthy dentistry. His goal is to treat his patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic and biocompatible way possible and to share information about dental wellness with his patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health.

Safe Mercury Amalgam (Silver) Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Rubin 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 New Directions Dentistry, which has set the standard for practicing mercury safe dentistry. Dr. Rubin has been Certified as having completed the course in How to Make Your Practice Mercury Safe: Minimizing Occupational Exposure to Mercury at the Dental Office. For more information about why we use safe removal protocols and an explanation of what they are, Click Here.
We also use 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. Rubin 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 he is fully qualified to safely remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I've known Dr. Rubin personally for many years and he is not only a great dentist, a great person, but a valued friend. He is one of the pioneers in addressing the mercury amalgam filling issue, fluoride, and promoting holistic, biocompatible and integrative, mercury safe dentistry. He is an extraordinarily dedicated, highly trained, experienced and compassionate holistic dentist. If I lived in Seattle he would be my dentist.....
I am very impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and his ongoing effort to educate his patients. He also utilizes this knowledge when designing a health based treatment plan for his patients.
Dr. Rubinhas completed my 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 safely remove mercury amalgam fillings safely, protecting himself, his staff, his patients and the envrionment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury at the dental office.
His concern for his patients health, his on-going training in holistic, cosmetic and traditional dentistry; along with his commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them. I am especially impressed with his environmentally friendly approach to his dental practice and I recommend him to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury-free and mercury-safe dentist.
Dr. Rubin is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury-Safe Dentists (IAMSD). I encourage you to visit is website to learn more about his philosophy of healthy, eco-friendly dentistry.
