DALLAS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--The Minamata Convention on Mercury was formally adopted as international law on October 10th. The goal of the UN-backed treaty, adopted by 140 governments, is to reduce mercury emissions and phase out the use of the neurotoxin in products like dental fillings. Dr. Daniel Strader of Dallas Designer Smiles has been a strong supporter of the treaty.
“The goal of my cosmetic dentistry is to not just give my patients beautiful smiles it’s also to protect them from harmful exposure to chemicals, heavy metals, and other toxins. We offer dental material compatibility testing for our chemically sensitive patients.”
The United States hasn’t ratified the treaty, which is opposed by the American Dental Association. The ADA continues to promote the use of mercury-containing amalgam fillings in dentistry.
“Being a biological dentist, my primary concern is for the overall health and wellness of my patients,” explains Dr. Strader. “The goal of my cosmetic dentistry is to not just give my patients beautiful smiles it’s also to protect them from harmful exposure to chemicals, heavy metals, and other toxins. We offer dental material compatibility testing for our chemically sensitive patients.”
Mercury’s harm to the nervous system has been known for 100 years. Mercury can impair thyroid and liver function and cause irritability, tremors, memory loss, and cardiovascular problems.
“Our commitment to the wellbeing of our patients is expressed in our team motto: ‘We’re not just changing smiles, we’re changing lives,’ ” says third-generation dentist Dr. Strader. “Many of our patients have told us of improved health since dental revision.”
Dr. Strader, who has spoken before the FDA presenting safer alternative dental filling materials, has been featured in D Magazine’s “The Best of the Big D” issue and listed by the Consumer Research Council in The Best Dentists in America.
Dallas Designer Smiles pampers patients from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, including Plano, Fort Worth, and Arlington. Dr. Strader’s cosmetic and restorative dentistry includes veneers, Lumineers®, bonding, laser dentistry, implants, mercury and BPA-free fillings, and metal-free ceramic crowns and bridges.
