About Our Mercury Safe Dental Practice
Dr. Thomas Colpitts' "Mercury Safe Dentist" office is located in Tulsa, OK. He is mercury free (amalgam/silver filling free) and mercury safe and 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.

Safe Mercury Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Thomas Colpitts 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 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.
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. Colpittsis 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.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Colpitts and have spoken with him about his philosophy and approach to holistic, mercury safe dentistry and I agree with him. He is a highly trained, experienced, caring and skilled holistic dentist. He is unique in that he is also a certified Naturopathic Physician and 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 medical background, 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 health-oriented dentist for all their treatment needs.
I encourage you to visit his informative website to learn more about Dr. Colpitts and his philosophy of biological and heath-based dentistry. When you visit his office please let him know where you found out about him and tell him hello from me. Thanks!
