A Personal Note from Dr. Tom

I know Dr. Markus and have spoken with him extensively over the years. I know him to be a very highly trained, experienced and skilled mercury-free and mercury-safe, 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 effort to educate his patients.

He is one of the pioneers in promoting mercury-safe, biological dentistry and in the use of cutting edge technology and treatment protocols. He is also aware of the importance of safely removing mercury and other heavy metals from the teeth and body.  His extensive training in all areas of holistic dentistry, his advanced training in cosmetic and traditional dentistry, and 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, experienced biological and mercury-safe dentist. He is also very creative, has a great sense of humor and is a nice person.  Dr. Markus is a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury-Safe Dentists (IAMSD).  He has a great website, very informative and interesting, and I encourage you visit his website to learn more about Dr. Markus and his approach to healthy dentistry. When you visit his office please tell him hello from me and let him know where you found out about him. Thanks!
