Mercury Free (Amalgam-Free), Mercury Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. Bob Gallien's office is mercury free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury safe and he is dedicated to the practice of health-based dentistry. His goal 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 can make educated decisions about their oral health. He fully understands the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes 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, we offer a wide range of treatment options. Dr. Gallien also takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, techniques, technology, and personal experience with a deep concern for his patients' health, emotional well-being and comfort.
Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Gallien 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.

His Whole Body, healthy dental philosophy stresses the use of non-invasive treatment whenever possible.

His Holistic - Patient First approach to dental treatment means that he treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.
Dr. Gallien is a strong advocate of continuing education because it allows him to give you and your family the most modern, state-of-the-art dental care.

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!
