Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling Free), Mercury Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
About Our Mercury Safe Practice
Dr. Mary Katherine Taylor's office is located in Yadkinville, NC. She is mercury safe and mercury free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and she is dedicated to the practice of health-based dentistry. Her goal is to treat her patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with her patients so that they can make educated decisions about their oral health. She 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. Taylor 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 Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (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. Taylor 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.
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. Taylor 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 her 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 Dr. Taylor in her efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. Her Health-Focused - Patient First approach to holistic dentistry means that she treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.
Dr. Taylor believes that continuing education is a powerful tool that allows her to give you and your family the best, state-of-the-art dental care.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
Dr. Taylor belongs to a number of highly regarded dental organizations, including the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and my Mercury Safe Dentist Association (IAMSD). These organizations encourage taking a integrative, whole-body approach to dental treatment and promote patient education. Her approach to healthy dentistry includes the understanding that you cannot be healthy without good oral health and she takes this into consideration when planning her patients dental treatment.
I've communicated with Dr. Taylor and know she is an exceptional person and a caring, highly trained, skilled and experienced dentist. Her commitment to quality, health-focused dentistry, her ongoing dedication to continuing education, and her concern for her patients health and well being, makes her ideally suited to safely remove and replace mercury amalgam fillings.
Dr. Taylor was associated with Dr. William Virtue and has taken over his practice. Dr. Virtue is a pioneer in promoting Mercury Safe Dentistry and that means that Dr. Taylor has been mentored by one of the best holistic, mercury safe dentists in the country.
Dr. Taylor is a charter member of my Mercury Safe Dentist Association and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a mercury free, mercury safe, and compassionate dentist.
