Dr. Ferguson is also soon to be certified in SMART dentistry by the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT).

"SMART" stands for Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique, a strict protocol for protecting patients, dental workers, and the environment from exposure to mercury. This is the main component of the metal alloy used to make "silver" fillings, and it is one of the most toxic elements on Earth. While it can affect any number of tissues in the human body, it is especially harmful to the brain.

Exposure to mercury can cause many concerning symptoms, including memory and other cognitive problems, psychological issues, neurological problems, immune system impairments, and more.

Mercury is especially dangerous when inhaled as vapor, a great deal of which can be generated by simply drilling out an old amalgam filling without any protections. So when a patient chooses to have their old amalgam fillings removed, Dr. Ferguson employs extensive suction and air filtration techniques, PPE, and specific clinical techniques that limit the amount of vapor generated. Proper waste disposal protocols are followed, as well.

Once old amalgam fillings have been safely removed, Dr. Ferguson can then replace them with metal-free, fluoride-free, and BPA-free restorations.
