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

To accomplish this, we utilize safe & proven removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.

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 treatment options. Dr. Kundel 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. Kundel 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.

About Dr. Kundel
Dr. Kundel has devoted his dental career to practicing healthy, holistic, non-invasive, biocompatible dentistry. He is also a proponent of making the dental office occupationally safe as possible regarding mercury and he strives to protect the patient, the staff, and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury at the dental office.
He is a 1999 graduate of Tufts University School of Dentistry. Following a year of residency at Montefiore Hospital and several assosiateships, he established a private practice in Stamford, Connecticut. He has focused his expertise towards advanced aesthetic rehabilitation, comprehensive periodontal management, facial pain, TMD/TMJ therapy, sleep dentistry and general dentistry.
Due to his awareness of the mouth/body connection, Dr. Kundel practices an aggressive state-of-the-art approach toward treating chronic oral inflammatory diseases known to increase risk factors for common medical problems.
As the current medical/legal standards-of-care shift to mandate multi-disciplinary management of compromising medical conditions, Dr. Kundel has created strong alliances with, and works closely with many physicians in the regional medical community to help them elevate their care of patients to these new standards. Dr. Kundel’s purpose is to build a bridge between the medical and dental communities to benefit patients, and to help doctors avoid the problems associated with failure to diagnose and treat important medical diseases related to the presence of chronic oral infections, the emerging “Oral – Systemic Connection.”
In the recent years, Dr. Kundel has gone through several paradigm shifts that allowed him to treat people more effectively not just intra-orally but systemically as well. This change is not possible, however, without the input of a patient’s physician. It is being shown again and again that collaborative efforts between specialists brings the best result. In the case of dentist/physician collaboration, the results are practically miraculous.
Our fantastic staff is made up of highly-trained, dedicated, caring and motivated professionals who work together as a unique team to bring you the highest quality holistic dental treatment in a healthy, caring, and supportive setting.

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!
