Mercury-Safe, Mercury-Free Dentistry
While “mercury-free” dentists no longer place amalgam fillings and use available mercury-free alternatives, “mercury-safe” dentists apply special techniques to remove existing amalgam fillings. Based on up-to-date scientific research, the IAOMT has developed rigorous recommendations for removing existing dental mercury amalgam fillings to assist in reducing the potential negative outcomes of mercury exposure to patients, dental professionals, dental students, office staff, and others. The IAOMT’s recommendations are known as the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).
Dr. Porcelli is SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique ) certified by IAOMT. Dentists who have obtained SMART certification from the IAOMT have completed coursework related to mercury and the safe removal of amalgam fillings. The educational programming includes learning about the application of the rigorous safety measures, including the utilization of specific equipment.
