Dr. Al Fallah's "Mercury Safe Dentist" office is located in Carlsbad, CA, 92008. He is mercury free (amalgam/silver filling free) and mercury safe and he is dedicated to the practice of healthy dentistry.

Safe Mercury Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Fallah 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.
