Mercury-Free (Amalgam Free). Mercury-Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. Kevin Boehm is a mercury-free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury-safe dentist and he is dedicated to practicing safe and high quality 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 treatment. He fully understands the 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. Boehm 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/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Boehm is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, and TMJ 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.

To accomplish this, we utilize safe & proven removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD), the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.

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!
