Safe Mercury Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Meyer 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.

To accomplish this, we utilize removal protocols for safely removing amalgam fillings based on the recommendations of the International Academy of Biological Dentists and Medicine, (IABDM), the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and New Directions Dentistry (NDD), which has set the standard for practicing mercury safe dentistry.

About Dr. Meyer
Philosophically Dr. Meyer believes in a Holistic Dental Approach and allowing the individual to rise to the level of health they seek. Long ago he found that not all people are ready to explore the advantages of modern holistic biological dentistry. There are those who know what they want and those that don’t and those in between. He can help all groups at some level. A cornerstone of Dr. Meyer's Holistic Dental practice is his belief in form following function and the biologic impact materials have on the human body. These two areas above all others are why many people seek his expertise in dentistry out.
Dr. Meyer is married and has two daughters. Prior to moving to Scottsdale/Phoenix he practiced in south central Illinois. The family loves the Southwest and is very pleased with the decision to relocate. The practice has grown over the years from serving a relatively small geographic area to one with an international flavor.
Our wonderful staff is made up of dedicated, highly-trained and motivated professionals who work together as a team to bring you the highest quality biological dental treatment in a healthy, warm and caring setting.

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!
A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Meyer personally and have talked to him numerous times about the value and importance of practicing mercury safe and healthy dentistry. I completely agree with his approach to healthy, biocompatible dentistry and I consider him to be a very highly trained, experienced, caring and skilled holistic dentist. He fully understands the critically important relationship between oral and overall health and offers a wide range of healthy treatment options.
Dr. Meyer has completed my course, and received his 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 him to safely remove mercury amalgam fillings safely, protecting himself, his staff, his patients and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury at the dental office.
He also works with other health professionals in supporting alternative treatments and the safe removal of mercury and other heavy metals from the body. I am very impressed by his educational background and his dedication and concern for his patient's oral and overall health.
His advanced and ongoing training in holistic, traditional and cosmetic dentistry and his concern for the safe removal of amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them. I would not hesitate recommending him to anyone seeking quality biological, biocompatible and mercury safe dentistry. Dr. Meyer is also a Charter Member in the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD).
I encourage you to visit his impressive and very educational website to learn more about his approach and philosophy of health oriented dentistry. When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and say hello to him from me. Thanks!
