Dr. Lukaczer’s Toolkit Item of the Month: Dental Amalgam Removal Protocol

Dan Lukaczer, ND

With our Biotransformation Advanced Practice Module (APM) just completed last month, I thought it was a good idea to highlight the updated Dental Amalgam Removal Protocol document. Dr. Mary Ellen Chalmers presents on dental issues during the Biotransformation APM and has done a wonderful job of helping us put together this guide. It goes through pre-procedure recommendations, a supplemental program for day of, and post-procedure recommendations. A biological dentist would be aware of these recommendations, and in fact, the document references the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology as the source. However, it does seem like a useful document to pull out when the subject comes up, as unfortunately, there are too few biological dentists to go around.

To access the IFM Clinical Practice Toolkit, log in to your account, select “My Education” from the left-hand side, then click on the IFM Toolkit tile. To find this toolkit document, search for “Dental Amalgam Removal Protocol” within the toolkit.
