The motto of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology is
    “Showme the Science”. The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology
    is a network of dental, medical and research professionals who seek to raise the
    standards of scientific biocompatibility in dental practices with information from the
    latest medical and dental research, as well as other related areas of scientific
    study. Since 1984, members of this group have examined, recorded, financed and
    encouraged independent research which supports treatment alternatives that can
    make dental practice more biologically acceptable. The IAOMT also has information
    on its website that is patient and consumer friendly, such as articles on safe
    removal of amalgam fillings, water fluoridation, biocompatible gum treatment, and
    root canals. On the home page there is search feature to find a holistic dentist or
    physician member. Dr. Gilbert joined as a charter member in 1985, achieved
    accreditation in 2006, and is still a member of the IAOMT.
The following professional resources are provided by
Dr. Gilbert to enable you to research and find more
information on holistic dental and medical health topics.  
The title for each organization is linked to its website.
Dental organizations are listed first, followed by medical
associations. Environmentally focused organizations are
listed last. All the organizations on this page have been
instrumental in the battle to eliminate the use of toxic
substances by the dental and medical professions.

Dr. Gilbert does not personally give referrals. If you are
trying to find a holistic dentist or doctor in your area,
several of the organizations on this page offer the
names and contact information of different practitioners
to choose from. Dr. Gilbert suggests you use the ‘Find a
Doctor’ resource on the home page of the International
Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). You
can also call Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions (DAMS)
at 651-644-4572 for help.

    The mission of the Environmental Working Group is to use the power of public
    information to safeguard both public health and the environment. The major goals
    of the Environmental Working Group are twofold. One is to protect the most
    vulnerable segments of the human population, specifically children, babies, and
    infants in the womb, from health problems attributed to a wide array of toxic
    contaminants. The second goal is to replace federal policies, including government
    subsidies that damage the environment and natural resources, with policies that
    invest in conservation and sustainable development.

    Since 1978, the Holistic Dental Association has been providing support and
    guidance to practitioners of holistic and alternative dentistry, as well as informing
    the public of the benefits of holistic dentistry for their health and well-being. The
    purpose of the HDA is to help in the continuing education of practitioners who have
    a desire to expand their knowledge and awareness of biocompatible dentistry, and
    to provide information and direction to those persons seeking to participate in their
    own health care. The Holistic Dental Association has a “Find a Holistic Dentist”
    search feature on the home page.
    Started in 1985, the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine is
    committed to the education of holistic dentists, physicians and practitioners in the
    art and science of biological dentistry. The IABDM has a “Find a Practitioner”

    Dental Amalgam Mercury Syndrome is a non-profit, volunteer, patient supported
    organization which provides information to mercury toxic individuals who are
    seeking help for various illnesses which they suspect are caused by mercury
    toxicity. Often, traditional physicians have not been able to satisfactorily treat these
    patients. Because the members of DAMS, or someone in their family, recovered
    from serious health problems after having amalgam fillings replaced, they have
    decided to dedicate a portion of their time to assisting others who believe their
    dental filings have made them sick. DAMS offers a wealth of information on
    research, medical studies, testing, symptoms of mercury toxicity, safe amalgam
    removal, detoxification, choosing suitable replacement materials and holistic
    treatment options, as well as furnishing the names of specially trained dentists and
    doctors who can provide alternative treatment options. DAMS answers questions
    about toxic crowns, bridges, dentures and the risks of root canal treatment of teeth;
    it  educates the public on jawbone disease or “cavitations” and on the toxic hazards
    of fluoride. DAMS has given information packets to many thousands of mercury
    poisoned people. Most of these people have seen their health improve significantly
    after reducing mercury exposure with proper dental and medical treatment.
    Thousands of such patients have been documented by DAMS. Please call 651-644-
    4572 and someone will help you with information and referrals.
    The International Association of Mercury Free Dentists is an organization dedicated
    to educating the public about the health hazards of amalgam fillings, chronic
    mercury poisoning, mercury detoxification and the relationship of oral to overall

    Consumers for Dental Choice was established in 1996 by consumer advocates,
    mercury poisoning victims, scientists and mercury-free dentists as a non profit
    organization. The mission of Consumers for Dental Choice is to protect the health
    of dental consumers and the environment by ultimately abolishing the use of
    mercury amalgam dental fillings. The purpose of the organization is to promote
    access to mercury-free dentistry and to encourage legislation that requires patients
    be given the opportunity to read a printed, scientifically based information fact
    sheet, so they can make a truly informed consent decision whether or not to accept
    mercury amalgam dental fillings.
    Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing helps address any concerns patients may have
    about the biocompatibility of dental materials used in their mouth. Clifford Materials
    Reactivity Testing is a laboratory screening process used to help identify, by means
    of a small blood sample taken from individual patients, existing sensitivity problems
    to various chemicals and compounds that are in dental materials. The sensitivities
    exist because of constant daily exposure to all sorts of chemicals and compounds,
    some of which are also used in dental materials. After a test has been ordered by a
    health care practitioner, the patient's reactivity test results are compiled in a report
    with currently lists over 7100 trade-named dental products. Then a treating dentist
    can use the report to select dental materials that are indicated as suitable for use in
    that patient, and avoid using dental materials that are identified as unsuitable
    because they contain chemicals or compounds to which the patient is already
    sensitive.
    The American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) is a not-for-profit

    itself as the voice of integrative medicine. Its goals are to improve physician skills,
    knowledge and diagnostic procedures as they relate to complementary and
    alternative medicine, to support integrative medicine research and to develop
    awareness of alternative methods of medical treatment. ACAM enables members of
    the public to find physicians who take an integrative approach to patient care and
    empowers people with information about integrative medicine treatment options.
