Mercury Safe, Mercury Free, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
About Our Mercury Safe Dental Practice
Dr. Dana Hodge King's 'Mercury Safe Dentist' office is located in San Antonio, TX. She practices holistic, mercury free (amalgam free) and mercury safe 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 may make educated decisions about their oral health. She 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 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 training and emphasis on total health, Dr. King takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science and technical experience with a deep concern for her patients' physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. King is aware that mercury vapor and dental infections can have a negative impact on overall health. Because of this concern, 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 my International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD) and a number of other prominent holistic dental organizations. For information about why it's important to use a mercury safe dentist, Click Here.
Her Whole Body, healthy dental treatment philosophy stresses the use of safe biocompatible dental materials and non-invasive treatment whenever possible. She also works closely with highly qualified health professionals to assist her in her efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. Her Holistic approach to dental treatment means that she treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.
Whole Body Dental Philosophy
Dr. King 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.

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!
