A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Carolina personally and consider her to be a highly trained, experienced and skilled holistic dentist. She trained with me for many years in Mercury Safe, Holistic and Biological Dentistry and I can personally vouch for her as a person of high integrity and for her skills as a dentist. She has also done some dental work on me and I know from experience that she is an excellent dentist.
I am impressed with the depth of her knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and her effort to educate her patients. She utilizes this knowledge when designing dental treatment of her patients.
Her ongoing training in holistic and cosmetic dentistry and her concern for the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings makes her ideally suited to remove and replace them. She is a strong supporter of healthy dentistry and offers many supportive treatments.
She is a good friend of mine whom I greatly admire and respect as a person and a dentist. She is also my personal dentist and I could give her no higher recommendation than that. If are searching for a caring biological and mercury safe dentist I highly recommend her.
She is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD). When you visit her office, please let her know where you found out about her and say hello to her from me. Thanks!
