The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) has evolved the standards for safely removing mercury amalgam dental fillings by significantly reducing the unnecessary and excessive exposure to mercury released from these fillings. The IAOMT's recommendations are known as the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).
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 health outcomes of mercury exposure to patients, dental professionals, dental students, office staff, and others.
At this time, Drs. Berkowitz and Braun are one of a small, but growing, number of IAOMT members who qualify as a SMART Certified IAOMT dentist. With the SMART designation you can be confident that they are fully qualified to safely remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings.
