It is not enough to just obtain a list of dentists and doctors. You need to order the information packet from DAMS to get yourself educated so that you will make the wisest choices in choosing a doctor or dentist, and learning how to detoxify your body. The more information you have, the safer will be your experience in becoming healthy again. I do not have all the information you need on my website.
If you have not found a good alternative doctor to help you with supplements and detoxification, a good biological dentist will be able to provide you with a list of alternative physicians that helps him with his patients. So just call the dentist's office for recommendations for a medical doctor.
If you are an experienced biological dentist
in VA, NC, or SC that uses (at least) all of the mercury removal protocols recommended by the IAOMT and would like your name listed on this website please email me at
Ask that the dentists below use the IAOMT protocol, or the Huggins protocol to remove mercury. Some may only use it if they are ASKED to. Others use it without being asked.

*The IAOMT, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, is a membership organization for dental, medical and research professionals who seek to raise the standards of scientific biocompatibility in dentistry. Members of this group have, since 1984, examined, chronicled and supported research into the distinctions that can make dental practice more biologically acceptable. In other words, the IAOMT teaches dentists HOW NOT TO MERCURY POISON patients, themselves and their assistants.
