Dr. Zina Aaron of Rose Dental is now a certified SMART dentist. The Atlanta, Georgia based holistic dentist recently completed her certification and is now seeing patients for safe mercury extraction.
“We are pleased to now be able to offer our patient this safer procedure,” says Dr. Aaron. “Mercury is a toxic metal and vapor, and it is simply not something that we feel our patients want used on them. We are happy to now be certified in providing completely holistic methods of dental care.”
The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology or IAOMT, promotes dentistry that is free from mercury. The organization states that they are concerned about patient exposure to mercury when amalgam fillings need to be removed.
“The process of drilling out those fillings can cause mercury particles and vapors to be inhaled by the patient,” says Dr. Aaron. “This is not safe for patients, dentists or dental workers that may be in the treatment room.”
Dr. Aaron states that it can be particularly harmful for pregnant women to inhale these particles as they can have a dangerous effect on fetuses. Dr. Aaron states that because of this danger, the dental practice wanted to assure patients that they are now able to provide them with removal techniques that are safe from these dangers.
The Atlanta holistic dentist states that there are methods that can be used to remove these amalgam fillings that are much safer for patients and dental workers. The IAOMT has developed a number of strict recommendations for removing these fillings. Years of research has gone into developing these techniques.
Dentists who receive their certification in SMART dentistry have completed all of the coursework required by the IAOMT for the safe removal of amalgam fillings. This coursework includes scientific readings and online videos that must be studied before testing is provided. Dentists must pass testing in order to receive their certification to ensure that they have read and that they fully comprehend the materials.
Education for certification includes learning about the application of a number of safety regulations that must be met in order to safely remove these fillings, including the use of specific equipment that is designed to assist with removing mercury fillings safely. Dentists who have received their certification are then recognized on the directory from the IAOMT to show patients that they can now perform these techniques safely.
In order for a dentist to begin the certification process, he or she must be a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and then enroll in the certification course. Dr. Aaron states that this is a certification that is well worth the effort.
The entire team at Rose Dental is proud to now offer their patients this new technique for the safe removal of mercury based fillings. Dr. Aaron states that those who would like more information can visit the dental practice on their official website to read more about all of the procedures that they currently offer.
The Rose Dental tam has experience in practicing mercury-free dental services, spanning back to 1975 with Dr. Ron Dressler. The team states that their patients’ health and well-being has always been their main concern and that this new certification just helps to further their goal of delivering the highest quality of dental services for those in the area.
Rose Dental is a practice that uses a number of natural dental therapies in combination with conventional methods in order to prevent, diagnose and treat various oral diseases and issues. Dr. Aaron states that anyone who would like to learn more about their practice can visit Rose Dental on their official website or contact them directly by phone or email at any time during their normal operating hours to speak with a representative from the practice.
