Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling Free), Mercury-Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. Woodbridge's office is mercury-free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury-safe and she is dedicated to practicing safe and healthy dentistry. Her mission is to share information about all aspects of dental wellness with her patients so that they can make educated decisions about their oral health. She 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 structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Dr. Woodbridge also takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, modern technology, and years of experience - with a deep concern for her patients' physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Safe Mercury Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Woodbridge is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, and TMJ problems can have a negative impact on oral and 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 for safely removing amalgam fillings based on the recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and New Directions Dentistry (NDD), which has set the standard for practicing mercury safe dentistry.
Safe Amalgam Removal Certification
Dr. Woodbridge has completed the NDD course, and received her Certification, in How to Make Your Practice Mercury Safe - Minimizing Occupational Exposure to Mercury in the Dental Office. This is the only course of its kind offered to dentists and qualifies her to remove mercury amalgam fillings safely, protecting herself, her staff, her patients, and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury vapor at the dental office.
