Being SMART about your safety


Dr David Cowhig is the first Australian Dentist to have received SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique) Certification from the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology).

Since it’s inception, dental wellness has prioritised the health of our patients, our team and the environment. For many years we have safely removed mercury fillings by rigorously following the protocols recommended by the IAOMT.

Dentists achieving SMART certification are recognised for their completion of the new certification, which has been developed from the latest scientific research. We are listed on the IAOMT’s Dentist Directory so that patients opting to find a dentist knowledgeable about mercury, safe removal, fluoride, biological periodontal therapy, root canals, and jawbone osteonecrosis can do so.

The team at dental wellness are happy to discuss how we can help you make SMART decisions about your health.
