Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling Free), Mercury Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. William Megills's office 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 Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Megill 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.
To accomplish this, we utilize removal protocols based on recommendations of the Holistic Dental Association (HDA), the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) 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.
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. Megill 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. Megill 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.

A Note from Dr. Megill
My basic tenet is to treat everyone with respect and allow them to choose their own treatment once the choices have been made clear to them. I have certain limits in that I will not violate standards of care; but, patients have the right to choose from no treatment to elaborate options of care. It is my obligation to educate you to the level where you can make an “informed” decision. My advice is slanted to what I consider a holistic view of how a proposed treatment may effect you; but, you will know when it varies from conventional thinking because I will tell you. Today we live in a world of many pollutants that are taxing our systems daily. Many years ago, I decided that I would try to minimize my role in adding to another person’s toxic burden. Toxicity may be physical, chemical, electrical or emotional.
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.
We would be honored to add you to our list of satisfied patients and encourage you to visit Our Office Website to learn more about our office and the many services and treatments we offer. We want to thank you for considering our office for all of your dental needs.
Our dental practice is dedicated to patient education.

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!

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Megill and he is a highly trained, experienced and skilled holistic and mercury safe dentist. I am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and his effort to educate his patients. He utilizes his knowledge and training when designing dental treatment plans for his patients.
He is unique in that he is also a Doctor of Integrative Medicine; a combination that is rare in dentistry. This combination is extremely important because of the direct, and critically important, relationship between oral and overall health. Because of his background in medicine, his ongoing training, dedication to biological and mercury safe dentistry, and his advanced training in cosmetic dentistry, he is ideally suited to safely remove and replace mercury amalgam fillings.
I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring health focused and mercury free dentist. Dr. Megill is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD). I encourage you to visit his website to learn more about his philosophy of biologically healthy dentistry. When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and say hello to him from me. Thanks!
