About Our Mercury Safe Dental Practice
Dr. Scott Rose's "Mercury Safe Dentist" office is located in Salon, OH. He 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/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
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 this concern, our office focuses 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. Making the dental office mercury safe is supported by the American Dental Association (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 amalgam 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 removal protocols 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.
Whole Body Dental Philosophy
His Whole Body, healthy dental philosophy stresses the use of non-invasive treatment whenever possible. He will also, when appropriate, work with qualified health professionals to assist him in 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 affect the entire body.
