Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling Free), Mercury Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Welcome to the Valley's only green dental office! Dr. Mark Wisniewski (Dr. Mark) practices holistic, mercury free (amalgam silver filling-free) and mercury safe dentistry. His goal is to treat his patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with his patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health. He fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"

Because of his advanced training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Mark takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science and technical experience with a deep concern for his patients' physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Mark 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 Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.
