Due to her advanced training and emphasis on both oral and total health, Dr. Castillo takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, modern technology, and dental experience - with a deep concern for her patients’ physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Amalgam Filling Removal
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Castillo is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, and TMJ (bite) problems can have a negative impact on overall health. Because of this concern, we focus on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings in a safe way.
At the Aesthetic Dental Studio of RI, Dr. Castillo follows the SMART protocol recommended by the IAOMT.
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. Castillo 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 she is fully qualified to safely remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
Dr. Castillo is a dedicated, well trained, experienced and caring holistic and cosmetic dentist. I have been in communication with Dr. Castillo and agree with her healthy approach to dentistry. I am impressed with the depth of her knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and her ongoing effort to educate her patients. She also utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of her patients.
Her concern for her patients' health, her ongoing training in holistic, cosmetic, and traditional dentistry; along with her commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings makes her ideally suited to remove and replace them. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a caring cosmetic, mercury free dentist.
I recommend that you visit her website to learn more about her approach to dentistry. When you visit her office please tell her where you found out about her and say hello to her for me. Thanks!
