Do you have Mercury Poisoning?
Marie's story

In 2001 I suffered from a severe case of mercury poisoning due to the unsafe removal of a "silver" filling by my dentist. It was very difficult to find the cause of my sudden illness, because few health care professionals are aware of the symptoms. Now I dedicate part of my time to warning others about "silver" mercury amalgam dental fillings.

I hope my story will help you understand your CHOICE of dentists and materials they use in your body.-- Marie Flowers, a Virginia homemaker

"Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your souls prospers." III John 2

  • Mercury Free A Growing number of dentists choose not to use dental amalgam, including Dr. Frederick Smith, a biological mercury free dentist in Lynchburg, Virginia. Dr. Smith is a member of The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, a group of mercury free dentists, alternative health doctors and scientists who research the effects of toxic materials in dentistry. They strive to use materials that are bio compatible with the body. The IAOMT has developed a protocol to use while drilling out mercury fillings that will minimize the patient's exposure to mercury vapor.

    You can read Dr. Frederick Smith's editorial to the Bedford Bulletin.

  • Safe Removal of Amalgam Fillings protocol developed by the IAOMT. Story with pictures


    Pediatric dentists and most of the Roanoke dentists are still not mercury free. Old fashioned dentists are still putting mercury in children's teeth. If fillings are silver or grey colored they are 50% MERCURY! Dentists' offices may tell you their amalgam (silver) fillings do not contain mercury. Amalgam means "mixed with mercury." Don't be fooled! There are mercury free dentists in Roanoke who will take children.
