Safe Mercury Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols

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!

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Bass and have talked with him about his approach to holistic, mercury safe dentistry. I agree with his philosophy and consider him to be a very caring, dedicated and highly trained mercury free dentist.

He is fully aware of the effect that oral health can have on overall health and treats his patients accordingly. Dr. Bass has taken hundreds of hours of advanced training and is seriously committed to ongoing education. His advanced training in cosmetic and traditional dentistry and his concern for safely removing mercury amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace these fillings.
Dr. Bass 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.
