I am trying to find a dentist who believes in non-toxic treatment. I have no problem finding a mercury-free dentist, but those same dentists don’t care what else they put in your mouth. I’m looking for completely non-toxic fillings. Is there a way to figure that out ahead of time?

I understand your frustration. A dental patient once wrote a letter saying that her new dentist, who advertised as holistic, considered himself so, merely because he gave you the option of not using fluoride. That was it. He still placed fillings laden with mercury, so there wasn’t even the mercury free dentistry thing as a possibility.
One of the things you can do when speaking to a mercury-free dentist, to ensure he or she is also toxic free, is to ask if their composite fillings are BPA free.
It is possible to have mercury free AND BPA free fillings, because Dr. Lopez does that. Make sure you check with the office ahead of time, because while you’re sitting in the operatory is too late.
