About Our Mercury Safe Practice
Dr. Radha Patel's Leading Edge "Mercury Safe Dentist" office is located in Marietta, GA. She is a mercury free (amalgam/silver filling free) and mercury safe dentist and she is dedicated to practicing safe and high quality dentistry. Her mission 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 may make educated decisions about their oral health treatment. She fully understands the 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. Patel is aware that dental infections, excessive mercury vapor, and TMJ (bite) problems can have an effect on oral and overall health. Because of this concern, we are a mercury free and mercury safe dental practice and we focus on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings in a safe way.
To accomplish this, she utilizes removal protocols based on recommendations of a number of prominent holistic dental organizations. Dr. Patel has been certified as completing the course on "How to Practice Mercury Safe Dentistry: Minimizing Occupational Exposure to Mercury in the Dental Office!" by New Directions Dentistry. For more information about safe removal protocols and an explanation of what they are, Click Here.
Holistic 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 healthy treatment options. Because of her advanced dental training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Patel takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, modern dental technology and latest techniques, and her personal experience with a deep concern for her patients’ physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Whole Body Dental Philosophy
Her Whole Body, dental philosophy stresses the use of non-invasive treatment whenever possible. She will also, when appropriate, work with qualified health professionals to assist her in her efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. Her Holistic - Patient First - approach to dental treatment means that she treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures with specific regard to how that treatment will not only affect the mouth but the entire body.
Dr. Patel is a strong advocate of continuing education because it allows her to give you and your family the most modern, state-of-the-art dental care.
