Dr. George Keanna's office is mercury free (mercury amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury safe and he 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. He 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. Keanna 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.
We believe it is important to protect the patient, the environment, and our staff from exposure to excessive and unnecessary occupational exposure to mercury during the amalgam removal process. Doing so is supported by the ADA and other dental organizations. 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), the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), 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.
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. Keeana 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 his patients' physical health and emotional well-being and comfort.
As a Holistic Dentist and Doctor of Intergrative Medicine, his treatment plans incorporate alternative therapies and functional medicine. He also works closely with the patient's primary health care practitioner to coordinate treatment, and with other Physicians, Osteopaths, Naturopaths, Doctors of Oriental Medicine, Chiropractors and Ayurvedic Medicine Practitioners.
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 him in his efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. His Health-Focused - Patient First approach to holistic dentistry means that he treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Keanna personally and have spoken with him numerous times. He belongs to a number of highly regarded dental organizations, including the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology my Mercury Safe Dentist Association. These organizations encourage taking a integrative, whole-body approach to dental treatment and promote patient education. His approach to healthy dentistry includes the understanding that you cannot be healthy without good oral health and he takes this into consideration when planning his patients dental treatment.
I consider Dr. Keanna to be a caring, highly trained, skilled and experienced dentist. His commitment to quality, health-focused dentistry, his ongoing dedication to continuing education, and his concern for his patients health and well being, makes him ideally suited to safely remove and replace mercury amalgam fillings.
The fact that he is a Doctor of Integrative Medicine is a real plus for his patients. To me this makes him better able not only to evaluate his patients from a whole body perspective, but to also provide treatment that takes into consideration the relationship of oral to overall health.
Dr. Keanna is a charter member of my Mercury Safe Dentist Association and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a mercury free, mercury safe, and compassionate dentist. I recommend visiting his website to learn more about his whole-body approach to dentistry. When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and say hello to him from me. Thanks!
