About Our Mercury Safe Practice
Dr. Munowitz's "Mercury Safe Dentist" office is located in West Chester, OH. 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 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. Munowitz 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. Munowitz 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.
We believe it is important to protect the patient, the environment, and our staff from exposure to excessive and unnecessary occupational exposure to mercury during the amalgam removal process. Making the dental office mercury safe is supported by the American Dental Association (ADA) and other dental organizations.

Dr. Munowitz has completed the New Directions Dentistry (NDD) course, and received her 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 her to remove mercury amalgam fillings safely, protecting herself, her staff, her patients, and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury vapor at the dental office.
We also utilize safe & proven removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentistry (IAMSD) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.

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. Munowitz 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.
