NEW! Dr. Tom McGuire's new YouTube 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! (You can also access it by searching YouTube for The Poison in Your Teeth.)
A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Eastin personally and consider him to be an exceptional dentist and person. As an IAOMT member and LVI graduate he has had advanced training in all aspects of mercury free, mercury safe and cosmetic dentistry. This combination makes Dr. Eastin extremely well qualified to safely remove and replace mercury amalgam fillings.
He has completed my course, and received his Certification, in How to Make Your Practice Mercury Safe - Minimizing Occupational Exposure to Mercury in the Dental Office. This is the only course of its kind offered to dentists and qualifies him to safely remove mercury amalgam fillings safely, protecting himself, his staff, his patients and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury at the dental office.
He is also unique in that he is also a naturopathic physician and fully understands the important relationship between oral and overall health. This combination makes him extraordinarily qualified to not only diagnose and treat oral problems but overall health issues as well. I believe that the way Dr. Eastin practices dentistry will become the standard for how dentistry is practiced in the future.
I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a dentist for any reason but especially for mercury safe and cosmetic dentistry. He is also a Charter Member of the IAMSD. When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and say hello to him from me. Thanks!
