A SMART Certified Dentistry That You Can Trust!
At Cedar Ridge Esthetic and Family Dentistry, we take great pride in our focus on the safety and health of every one of our valued patients. Because of this we have become SMART certified by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.
What is the IAOMT?
The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology is a non-profit organization founded in 1984 with the goal of funding and promoting the research and science needed to ensure safe and healthy dental practices. This global network of dentists and healthcare professionals is dedicated to improving the health has done a great deal to research the dangers of dental mercury amalgam fillings.
Recent studies and research have shown that the exposure to mercury that comes from mercury amalgam fillings can be harmful. However, the removal of these fillings can cause the inhalation or absorption of mercury dust or vapor. In order to remove these kinds of fillings, requires special care and special training.
SMART certification stands for the safe mercury amalgam removal technique. Our dentists have received this certification through extensive training and education. This certification requires a great deal of video and written education as well as tests and worksheets. This is something that we have done because we care about providing the highest quality of care for all of our patients.
