The terminology used to describe alternative dental care has gone through many changes in recent decades. Mercury free dentistry is better described as mercury safe dentistry. Holistic dentistry, biological dentistry, and whole mouth dentistry is better described as Whole Body Dentistry. After all, the mouth is very well attached to the body! This approach to dental care focuses on the connection between the health of your smile and the health of your entire body.
The state of your teeth and gums can have a significant impact on your overall health. In fact, gum disease can lead to systemic conditions, such as heart disease, strokes and low birth weight in infants. Dr. Clark is trained in standard dental care, but he does not perform treatments simply because they are traditional. By minimizing your exposure to hazards such as mercury and radiation, he can also minimize the risk of developing other serious health conditions.
As part of his research with the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, Dr. Roger Eichman investigated the short- and long-term effects of exposure to mercury in amalgam fillings.
My brother and husband have been going to Dr. Clark for some time now and we have found his service to be excellent.
Medical-grade oxygen (95 percent oxygen, five percent ozone) is an excellent sterilizer that we use to eliminate pathogens while leaving surrounding tissues undisturbed.
PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN is created using a small sample of the patient's blood. When applied to treatment areas, the growth factors expedite healing following extractions and other procedures.
By using a soft tissue laser instead of traditional tools, we can provide treatment such as reduction of periodontal pockets in greater comfort, with a minimized risk of infection and a shorter recovery time.

He has been a proponent of biological dentistry for several decades. Since discontinuing placement of amalgam fillings in 1985, he has been following protocols for removing mercury with the utmost safety.
