Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling Free), Holistic, Cosmetic Dentistry, and Family Dentistry
Dr. Carl McMillan's office is mercury free (amalgam/silver filling free) and mercury safe and he is dedicated to the practice of holistic, integrated 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. McMillan is aware that mercury vapor and dental infections can have a negative impact on 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 based on recommendations of 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 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. McMillan 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 he is fully qualified to safely remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings.
Holistic Dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Dr. McMillan also takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science and technical experience with a deep concern for his patients' emotional well-being and comfort.
Whole Body Dental Philosophy
This Whole Body philosophy stresses the use of safe 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 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.
Dr. McMillan believes that continuing education is a powerful tool that allows him to give you and your family the best, state-of-the-art dental care. Each year, he takes many hours of continuing education courses in holistic, cosmetic and traditional dentistry in order to provide his patients with the most advanced dental care.

About Dr. McMillan
His belief that total body wellness starts in the mouth is the foundation of his practice. Dedicating himself to practicing dentistry according to the oath of ‘First, do no harm,’ Dr. McMillan ardently believes in providing his patients with dental care that improves their overall health. He always challenges himself to find an answer to the issue by finding a way that is not harmful to the overall health of the patient.
Introducing himself as Carl, he gets to know his patients on a personal level by leaning back and getting to know about them and their families. Even though a majority of his patients are holistic patients, a majority of his non-holistic patients also decide to stay because of the way he treats them. He gives his cell number to all his patients and they can contact him at anytime about any issue. Always keeping his patients in the driver’s seat, he never performs any procedure without educating them about why it should be done and what relationships it has with their overall health.
When he’s not working or reading, he can be found with his wife and four children, either playing or coaching sports like baseball, basketball, football, and soccer. A huge lover of outdoor activities, he frequently water skis, snow skis, cycles, and runs short distance races. He believes that diet, exercise and mental or spiritual activity are vital contributory factors to solid and total health.
Our wonderful staff is made up of highly-trained, caring and motivated professionals who work together as a team to bring you the highest quality biological dental treatment in a healthy, warm and supportive setting.

NEW! Dr. McGuire's new Video, Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth conclusively proves that not only do amalgam fillings 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.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. McMillan personally and consider him to be a highly trained, experienced and skilled holistic dentist. I am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and his ongoing effort to educate his patients. He also utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of his patients.
His ongoing training in holistic and cosmetic dentistry, particularly at the prestigious LVI, along with his concern for the safe removal of amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring biological and mercury free dentist. Dr. McMillan is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury Free Dentists (IAMFD).
I encourage you to call his office to learn more about his philosophy of mercury free, biological dentistry. When you visit his office, please tell him where you found out about him and say hello to him for me. Thanks!
