What makes biologic dentistry so different?
Traditional dental schools tend to teach students to be tooth mechanics, looking at each patient as a requirement for graduation. Biologic dentistry looks at the patient as a whole, with the mouth being an integral part of the system. The dentist has to use materials to fix and restore the mouth to optimal health without adding foreign chemicals or agents that might have a negative impact. Do no harm is the ethical code we live by and informed consent imperative to open and transparent communication.
Some new research has shown that fluoride is very toxic to the thyroid gland, increases the risk of some cancers and depletes the body of iodine which is essential for immune system function. Dr. Paul Connett has set up an inclusive web site which explains the basic toxicity of fluoride and why we need to avoid it for optimum health.
Why do you NOT use fluoride treatments when most dentists still believe in it?
Our practice revolves around the highest degree of safety and accountability. All of our high tech gear is designed to make your visits with us safe, relaxing as well as educational. The cost of protection like monitoring the mercury levels, filtering the air and water as well as employee training (which is ongoing) has been amortized over the life of the equipment to reduce raising fees to exorbitant levels. We want to stay competitive in the marketplace in order to allow as many patients as possible to take advantage of this new paradigm in dentistry. Welcome to the future!
All that high tech stuff looks intimidating and expensive, will I pay a lot more for essentially the same thing?
In addition many downtown bed and breakfasts are within walking distance to our office. Ask about our VIP program for those wanting to experience an overnight visit.
If I am out of state or out of the country what can I do?
Please encourage your local dentist to attend our beginner's mercury hygiene course which is given on Thursday before our main meeting twice a year. The time and locations are posted on the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology web site. We are always welcoming new dentists to join our group, become more educated about the safety protocols which we have developed and grow their practices successfully by gaining this new knowledge about biologic dentistry.
What if I am unable to travel and am looking for a local biologic dentist?

To the left is a video which our friend Randall Moore has done for the UN Environmental Committee to study during the recent collaboration with IAOMT and other groups. Mercury silver amalgam fillings were recently voted on by the UN to be phased out over the next five years. It is our intention to provide this video to you to illustrate what is happening at an international level to make the world a safer place for you and its inhabitants. Dr. Young
