Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling Free), Mercury Safe, Holistic, Family Dentistry
About Our Mercury Safe Dental Practice
Dr. Eileen McGinty's "Mercury Safe Dentist" office is located in Littleton, CO. She is mercury free (amalgam/silver filling free) and mercury safe and she 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. McGinty 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. McGinty 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. For information about why it's important to use a mercury safe dentist, Click Here.
To accomplish this, she utilizes removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent 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. McGinty 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.
Whole Body Dental Philosophy
This 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. McGinty is a strong advocate of continuing education because it allows her to give you, and your family, the most modern and state-of-the-art dental care. Each year she takes many hours of continuing education courses and she has advanced training in many areas of biological, cosmetic and traditional dentistry.
