Mercury Safe Dentistry
A dentist who is both mercury free (amalgam/silver filling free) and mercury safe want their patients to know that there is a significant difference between the two. As a patient, it is also very important to know the difference between two – because more and more dentist is becoming Mercury Free but are still not Mercury Safe. The term “Mercury Free” refers to a dentist who does not put amalgam silver fillings in their patients’ teeth. Mercury Safe dentist has made their offices as mercury safe as possible. They use state of the art technology, equipment from excessive, and unnecessary, occupational exposure to mercury at the dental office. Our office strives to protect our patients as well as our staff from the toxic effect of mercury vapor exposure.

Dr. Morris also maintains membership in the IAOMT in order to stay informed in the area of dental mercury safe.
