About Our Mercury Safe Dental Practice
Dr. John Hamel's "Mercury Safe Dentist" office is located in Acworth, GA. His office is mercury free (amalgam/silver filling free) and mercury safe and he is dedicated to the practice of health-based 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 can make educated decisions about their oral health. He fully understands the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Hamel is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, and TMJ (bite) problems can have a negative impact on oral and overall health. Because of these concerns, 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. Doing so is supported by the ADA and other dental organizations. For information about why it's important to use a mercury safe dentist, Click Here.
To accomplish this, we utilize safe & proven removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations. For more information about why we use safe protocols to remove amalgam fillings 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. Hamel 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 he is fully qualified to safely remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings.
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 treatment options. Dr. Hamel also 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 his patients' physical health and emotional well-being and comfort.
Whole Body Dental Philosophy
This Whole Body philosophy stresses the use of biocompatible dental materials whenever possible. He also works closely with highly qualified health professionals to assist him in his efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. His Health-Focused - Patient First approach to holistic dentistry means that he treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.
Dr. Hamel believes that continuing education is a powerful tool that allows him to give you and your family the best, state-of-the-art dental care. Each year he takes many hours of continuing education courses in holistic, cosmetic, and conventional dentistry in order to provide his patients with the most advanced dental care possible.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I've met Dr. Hamel and consider him to be a highly trained, experienced and skilled holistic dentist. I am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and his effort to educate his patients. He utilizes his knowledge and training when designing dental treatment plans for his patients.
His ongoing post graduate training in holistic, cosmetic and traditional dentistry and his concern for the safe removal of amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring health focused, mercury free and mercury safe dentist.
He is active in the efforts to educate the public that dental treatment is critically important to overall health and to advance healthy, biocompatible dentistry. Dr. Hamel is a charter member of my Mercury Safe Dentist Association and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a mercury free, mercury safe, and compassionate dentist.
I recommend visiting his website to learn more about his whole-body approach to dentistry. When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and say hello to him from me. Thanks!
