Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling Free), Mercury Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
About Our Mercury Safe Practice
Dr. Terry Rose's Mercury Safe Dental Office in Moonee Ponds, Victoria. He is both 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
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Rose 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. For information about why it's important to use a mercury safe dentist, Click Here.
Dr. Rose has completed the New Directions Dentistry (NDD) course, and received his Certification, in How to Make Your Practice Mercury Safe - Minimizing Occupational Exposure to Mercury in the Dental Office. This is the only course of its kind offered to dentists and qualifies him to remove mercury amalgam fillings safely, protecting himself, his staff, his patients, and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury vapor at the dental office.
We also incorporate the recommendations of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD) and other prominent 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. Rose 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. Rose 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. Rose 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.
