Here is some information that many of you know, and that others are quickly learning. No matter who the dentist is, if he/she goes to your church, coaches your children at camp, has children that you know and adore, etc., you need to know some important information about his/her beliefs and practice ideas. Do not be so “nice” that you ask questions that can be answered with “Yes” and “No.”
A dentist who is placing or is OK with mercury fillings being placed in the same office she/he is working in, could not be my dentist. Why did they quit and where did they learn the protocols of “safe” mercury filling removal. We believe in practicing the same mercury-safe protocols for every person we treat; how could a believer do anything else? The office needs to have a mercury filtration system to prevent mercury filings from getting into the plumbing, sewer, and our water supply.
With some variation, the office you choose to take your family (and yourself) to, must be conscious of the mercury-ladened air coming out of the patients’ mouths and fillings, should protect the patient during removal, and should have some level of office filtration.
We believe that it is important to have some system or protocol for determining which new materials will work best for each client. That is a must for us. The same is true with nutritional support: finding the best nutritional support and detox protocol for each patient is crucial.
That is a good start. Be sure that you are familiar and comfortable with the “answers” above, before you ask your questions of the office staff or the (biological) dentist you are considering to trust with your mercury filling removal.

- Are any special nutritional protocols recommended for patients? What protocols would that be?
