In a sterile clinical setting, the Environmental Health Center-Dallas has the ability to create its own antigens. Thus the Center has the capability to skin test many different products required for dental health. This skin testing approach can help take the fear and guess work out of dental products selection. Through conferences with your dentist or through your communication with him, we can determine the skin tests which are crucial for the performance of your successful dental work.

Mercury fillings can pose a severe problem for some individuals. A Hair Mineral Analysis can be performed to evaluate your heavy metal body burden. The Environmental Health Center-Dallas can skin test you to determine if you are experiencing an allergic response to mercury. We provide treatment for mercury toxicity and for mercury sensitivity. We advise you when it is safe to engage in detoxification treatments.

We can consult with you on the advisability of root canal procedures and on the use of products which are usually tolerated by the chemically sensitive. The decision regarding dental procedures is based on the evaluation of the physician, the patient’s history and physical, skin testing results and sensitivities, and laboratory findings. These factors in conjunction with consultations with patient and dentist allow all to obtain a plan of action which should protect the health and interests of the patient.

The choice of a dentist to remove mercury fillings is very important. The Center can provide the patient with a list of dentists who specialize in the proper technique for mercury removal.
