Mercury-Free (Amalgam-Free), Mercury-Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. Eddie is a mercury-free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury-safe dentist and she is dedicated to practicing safe and high quality dentistry. Her mission is to treat her patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with her patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health treatment. 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 oral structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Because of her advanced dental training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Eddie takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, modern dental technology and latest techniques, and her personal experience with a deep concern for her patients’ physical and emotional well-being and comfort.
Mercury Safe Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Eddie is aware that dental infections, excessive mercury vapor, and TMJ (bite) problems can have an effect on oral and overall health. Because of this concern, we are a mercury free and mercury safe dental practice and 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.
Our office utilizes removal protocols for safely removing amalgam fillings that are based on the recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT) and New Directions Dentistry (NDD), which has set the standard for practicing mercury safe dentistry.
Dr. Eddie 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.
