International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT)

The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) is an organization of dentists, physicians, and allied researchers who consider biocompatibility to be their first concern and who demand scientific evidence as their key criterion.

Members of this group have examined, chronicled, and supported research into the distinctions that can make dental practice more biologically acceptable. This “biological dentistry” attitude can inform and intersect with all topics of conversation in health care where the well-being of the mouth is recognized as an integral part of the health of the whole person.

One of the primary concerns of the IAOMT is in the area of mercury used in the common silver filling. The IAOMT is dedicated to funding peer-reviewed, scientific research in the area of toxic substances used in dentistry as well as in providing continuing education. They are the only organization that has established specific protocols for the safe and proper removal of mercury amalgam fillings.

The IAOMT administers a special certification program for dentists and physicians interested in the basics of biological dentistry, especially in the area of mercury-free dentistry. Those who complete the program’s requirements and demonstrate a thorough understanding of the proper protocol for the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings qualify for Accreditation with the IAOMT.
