Mercury free dentists have been known to polish and remove "silver" amalgam fillings thereby exposing their patients and staff members to thousands of micrograms of mercury vapor and particulate matter. "Mercury Safe" dentists take every precaution to protect the patient, staff and environment from harmful mercury vapors and mercury contaminated particulate matter.
Dr. Margolis is not just a dentist, but also a doctor of integrative medicine and one of the pioneers in promoting biological, mercury safe dentistry.
