About Our Mercury Safe Practice
Dr. Michael Margolis's Mercury Safe Dental Office is located in Mesa, AZ. He is a mercury-free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury-safe dentist and he is dedicated to practicing safe and high quality dentistry. His mission 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 may make educated decisions about their oral health treatment. He fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
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 his advanced dental training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Margolis takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, modern dental technology and latest techniques, and his personal experience with a deep concern for his patients’ physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Margolis 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.
Whole Body Dental Philosophy
His Whole Body, dental philosophy stresses the use of non-invasive treatment whenever possible. He will also, when appropriate, work with qualified health professionals to assist him in his efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. His Holistic - Patient First - approach to dental treatment means that he 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.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Margolis personally and consider him not only a great person but an extraordinarily well-trained, experienced and skilled mercury free and mercury safe, biological dentist. He is unique in that he is also a Doctor of Integrative Medicine and I am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and in his effort to educate his patients.
He is one of the pioneers in promoting biological, mercury safe dentistry and in the use of cutting edge technology and healthy holistic treatment protocols. He is also aware of the importance of safely removing mercury and other heavy metals from the teeth and body. His extensive training in cosmetic and biological dentistry and his concern for the safe removal of amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them.
I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring biological and mercury-safe dentist. Dr. Margolis is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury-Safe Dentists (IAMSD). I recommend a visit to his website to learn more about his approach to healthy and safe holistic dentistry. I consider him a friend and when you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and tell him hello for me. Thanks!
