Dr. Ramin Tabib is a holistic, mercury free (amalgam/silver filling free) and mercury safe dentist and he is dedicated to practicing safe and healthy 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. He fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"

Safe Mercury Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Tabib 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. For information about why it's important to use a mercury safe dentist, Click Here.
To accomplish this, we utilize removal protocols for safely removing amalgam fillings based on the recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and New Directions Dentistry (NDD) , which has set the standard for practicing mercury safe dentistry.
Dr. Tabib has completed the NDD 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 remove mercury amalgam fillings safely, protecting himself, his staff, his patients, and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury vapor at the dental office.

His concern for his patients health, his ongoing training in cosmetic and traditional dentistry (including implants and full-mouth reconstruction); along with his commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them. I am especially impressed with his dedication to Patient Education as it is such an important part of oral and overall health. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury free dentist.
