Last night I was fortunate to have dinner with Dr. David Kennedy, retired San Diego holistic dentist and past president of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). Dr. Kennedy is the author of How to Save Your Teeth, which ” synthesizes the current scientific knowledge of environmental health, preventive and environmental dentistry into a comprehensive self help program,” according to a summary on Amazon.
As stated on its web site, the IAOMT was formed in 19984 to promote ” Evidence Based Dentistry” in order to “review, support, and disseminate research on the suitability of materials and methodologies used in the dental practice. The IAOMT convened in San Diego this past week for its biannual gathering of brilliant speakers. Among them was Boyd Hayley, head of the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky and a renowned expert on environmental health. Numerous YoutTube videos can be found in which Dr. Haley discusses mercury in amalgam fillings and its effects. Here are some of the links:
