Mercury-Free (Amalgam Free), Mercury-Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry

Dr. David Nelson is a mercury-free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury-safe dentist and he is dedicated to practicing safe and high quality dentistry. His mission 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 treatment. He 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. Because of his advanced dental training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Nelson takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, modern dental technology and latest techniques, and his personal experience with a deep concern for his patients’ physical and emotional well-being and comfort.

As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Nelson is aware that dental infections, excessive mercury vapor, and TMJ (bite) problems can have an effect on oral and overall health. Because of this concern, we are a mercury free and mercury safe dental practice and we focus on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings in a safe way.

His Whole Body, dental philosophy stresses the use of non-invasive treatment whenever possible. He will also, when appropriate, work with qualified health professionals to assist himin his efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. His Holistic - Patient First - approach to dental treatment means that he treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures with specific regard to how that treatment will not only affect the mouth but the entire body.

Dr. Nelson is a strong advocate of continuing education because it allows him to give you and your family the most modern, state-of-the-art dental care.

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! It also tells you what you can do about it. Click Here to watch this amazing video demonstration - and don’t forget to tell your friends and family!

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom

I've spoken with Dr. Nelson many times and believe him to be a dedicated, well trained, experienced and caring 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 ongoing effort to educate his patients. He also utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of his patients.

His concern for his patients health, his ongoing training in cosmetic and traditional dentistry; along with his commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them. I am especially impressed with his dedication to Patient Education as it is such an important part of oral and overall health. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury free dentist.

I suggest you visit to his website to learn more about him and his approach to dentistry. When you visit his office please tell him where you found out about him and say hello to him for me. Thanks!
