A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Grant to be highly trained, dedicated, and caring dentist. I totally agree with his approach to mercury safe, holistic cosmetic dentist. His concern for his patients health, his ongoing training in 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 dedication to Patient Education as it is such an important part of oral and overall health. I like to call him the Education Dentist. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury free dentist. Dr. Grant was mentored by one of the very best dentists, Dr. Mark Weiser, and he now has taken over his practice. I know Mark personally and he has spoken very highly about Dr. Grant.
Dr. Grant is committed to on-going education and is a Charter Member of the IAMSD. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a quality mercury free dentist.
