Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling), Mercury Safe, Holistic, Health-Based, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
About Our Mercury Safe Dental Practice
Dr. Meagan Lilly-Frank's "Mercury Safe Dentist" office is located in Whitefish, MT. She practices Holistic, mercury free (amalgam free) and mercury safe dentistry and her mission is to share information about dental wellness with her patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health.
Holistic dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Because of her advanced training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Lilly-Frank takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science and technical experience with a deep concern for her patients' physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Safe Mercury Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Lilly-Frank is aware that mercury vapor and dental infections can have a negative impact on 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 removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.

NEW! Dr. Tom McGuire's new Video, Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth conclusively proves that amalgam/silver fillings not only release toxic mercury vapor - but that the common act of brushing just one amalgam filling - will release more mercury than allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace!

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I met Dr. Lilly-Frank after she graduated from dental school and was very impressed with her approach to holistic, mercury-safe dentistry. I know her to be a dedicated, well trained, experienced and caring holistic dentist. 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. She also utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of her patients.
Her concern for her patients health, her ongoing training in holistic, cosmetic, and traditional dentistry; along with her commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings makes her ideally suited to remove and replace them. I am especially impressed with her dedication to mercury safe dentistry as it is such an important part of oral and overall health. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury free dentist.
Dr. Lilly-Frank is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD). When you visit her office please tell her where you found out about her and say hello to her for me. Thanks!
