About Our Mercury Safe Office
Dr. Shoha's office is mercury free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury safe and she is dedicated to the practice of holistic, healthy, biocompatible dentistry. Her goal is to treat her patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share her knowledge 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 knows that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
Holistic 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, our office offers a wide range of healthy treatment options. Dr. Shoha also takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, technology, and her personal dental experience with a deep concern for her patients' emotional well-being and comfort.
Safe Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Dr. Shoha is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, TMJ (bite) problems can have a negative impact on oral and overall health. Because of this concern, 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 & Toxicology (IAOMT) and New Directions Dentistry (NDD), which has set the standard for practicing mercury safe dentistry. For more information about why we use safe removal protocols and an explanation of what they are, Click Here.
Dr. Shoha has completed the NDD course, and received her 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 her to remove mercury amalgam fillings safely, protecting herself, her staff, her patients, and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury vapor at the dental office. For more information about why we use safe removal protocols and an explanation of what they are, Click Here.
The IAOMT has developed rigorous standards for safely removing mercury amalgam dental fillings by reducing the unnecessary and excessive exposure to mercury released from these fillings. The IAOMT's recommendations are known as the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).
At this time, Dr. Shoha is one of a small number of IAOMT members who qualifies as a SMART Certified IAOMT dentist. With the SMART designation you can be confident that she is fully qualified to safely remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings.

I've met and spoken with Dr. Shoha and agree with her approach to healthy, holistic dentistry. She has also taken our course in How to Make the Dental Office Mercury Safe. I believe her to be a dedicated, well-trained, experienced and caring dentist.

These organizations encourage taking a holistic, biocompatible, safe, health-based approach to dental treatment and strive to promote patient education.
Her commitment to amalgam-free, mercury-safe, whole-body dentistry, advanced studies in cosmetic dentistry, her ongoing dedication to continuing education in all phases of dentistry, and her concern for her patients health and well being - makes her ideally suited to safely remove and replace mercury amalgam fillings.
Dr. Dr. Shoha is a charter member of the International Association of Mercury-Safe Dentists (IAMSD) and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a mercury free and mercury safe, holistic and caring dentist.
