I was concerned about the mercury in the amalgam fillings I’d had on my teeth for many years. Dr Carpenter and Melissa Russ, ND, first consulted with me about the procedures for safely removing these and created a treatment plan. Phase 1 – remove the amalgam fillings and replace with safe composite resin fillings. Phase 2 – remove 2 crowns that have metals in them and highly likely, mercury, as well as another filling that is not amalgam, but suspect.

For Phase 1, I went in for a pre-screen, a dress rehearsal of the procedure and to check my blood pressure, pulse, and oxygenation. Dr Carpenter is good about stressing the importance of true deep breathing during procedures and in daily life.

The procedure itself was done under anesthesia with full protection against mercury toxins in place for me and Dr Carpenter as well as Jackie and Melissa.

They were all very caring, nurturing and did everything with sensitivity to my comfort. Dr Carpenter explained everything before, during and after the procedure. Jackie and the others were awesome.

I would recommend this dental practice to everyone for any kind of procedures. They focus on holistic principles, truly caring for their patients, and promoting healing.

I really am so grateful for Dr Carpenter, Melissa Russ, ND and their staff for the care they have given me. I came to them struggling with acute and intensely painful arthritis, such that it was impeding my ability to work. I also was struggling with a growing and significant depression that was impacting my personal and professional life. After the surgery that Dr Carpenter did, my arthritis began resolving within a week, and within 2-3 weeks I no longer had the arthritic pain at all. The depression had fully resolved within 2-3 weeks as well. There is no question that the dental infections and metals were causing my life debilitating symptoms and no doubt that the resolution of my health issues is certainly a result of the dental procedures of Dr Carpenter and his staff. Thank you so much. I believe that many of our health issues are rooted from our dental issues and I’m thankful that Dr Carpenter and Melissa Russ, ND understand this as well. I am so happy and relieved to be mercury free now.

Dr. Carpenter's philosophy and practice of biological dentistry has greatly impacted my life. I had spent many years on the emotional/physical roller coaster of life. I hadn't felt well for a few years, but just couldn't sort out why. I went to my primary doctor, but the usual blood tests had shown normal. I also visited my wonderful naturopath person. She improved my health, but something was still wrong.

I have typically been an upbeat, active person. Because I had no energy, I did nothing but sleep late, go to bed early. When I was able, I spent the rest of the time on the couch in front of the TV. I hated it because it wasn't me. Doing nothing but an emotional strain on me and thus caused me to be even more physically drained. The whole situation was a vicious circle.

One day, I happened to read an article on mercury toxicity from different sources. The author describes the release of mercury vapor in your mouth from silver amalgams. At first, I was shocked. Then it sank in, and I became angry. All these years, I had four amalgams in my mouth. I thought, how could a dentist morally choose to place mercury in my mouth which is in the top two most toxic metals in the world.

I struggled with the cost of having my feelings removed; however, I wanted to be healthy and active again. So, I made an appointment with Dr. Carpenter's office. He was so kind and listened to my concerns. He agreed that the mercury fillings should come out. He also shared his own experience with mercury poisoning.

It took six or seven months for my body to detox and recover. Now, I can't wait to get out of bed, and I have tons of energy. Another benefit of being healthy is that I'm happier than I've been for years because, I am an active and productive person again. Yeah!!!
