About Our Mercury Safe Dental Practice
Dr. Layton's 'Mercury Safe Dentist' office is located in Hummelstown, PA. She is mercury free (amalgam/silver filling free) and mercury safe and is dedicated to practicing safe and healthy dentistry. Her mission is to share information about all aspects of dental wellness with her patients so that they can 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 oral structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Given her advanced training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Layton 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 her patients' physical and emotional well-being and comfort.

Safe Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Layton is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, and TMJ (bite) problems can have a negative impact on oral and overall health. Because of this concern, we focus on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings in a safe way.

To accomplish this, we utilize safe amalgam removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.

Whole Body Dental Philosophy
Dr. Layton's Whole Body philosophy also stresses the use of biocompatible dental materials whenever possible. She also works closely with highly qualified health professionals to assist her in her efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. Her Holistic - Patient First - approach to dentistry means that she treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.
Dr. Layton is a strong advocate of continuing education because it allows her to give you and your family the best, state-of-the-art dental care. Each year she takes many hours of continuing education courses in holistic and conventional dentistry in order to provide her patients with the most advanced dental care possible.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Layton personally and have a tremendous regard for her approach to healthy dentistry. I've spoken with her about her approach to healthy dentistry and wholeheartedly agree with her philosophy. I consider Dr. Layton to be an exceptionally well-trained, experienced and caring holistic dentist.
Of note is that she is a Doctor of Integrative Medicine. This allows her to more effectively treat the patient from a whole body perspective - which is very important given the relationship of oral to overall health. Dr. Layton also belongs to a number of highly regarded holistic dental organizations and these organizations encourage taking a holistic, whole-body approach to dental treatment and promote patient education.
I am impressed with the depth of her knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health, and her ongoing effort to educate her patients. Her commitment to healthy dentistry, her ongoing dedication to continuing education, and her concern for her patients health and well being, along with her commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings, makes her ideally suited to safely remove and replace them.
