About Our Mercury Safe Practice
Dr. Jesus Carlos Ornelas' 'Holistic, Biological Dental' office is located in Tijuana, Mexico. 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 Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Ornelas 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.
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. Doing so is supported by the 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 & proven removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentistry (IAMSD) and other prominent biological and 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.
Dr. Ornelas 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, her patients, and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury vapor at the dental office.
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. Ornelas 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. Ornelas 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.

Also, for patients coming from outside of Mexico he will make special arrangements so you can have your treatment done in the shortest period of time.
His commitment to quality, holistic/biological dentistry, his ongoing dedication to continuing education, and his concern for his patients health and well being, makes him ideally suited to safely remove and replace mercury amalgam fillings.
