Come on

george grombacher 0:12
this is George G. And the time is right. welcome today’s guest strong and powerful. Dr. Mark deola. Dr. Mark, are you ready to do this? Yeah, thanks for inviting me. excited to have you on Dr. Mark has been a practicing dentist for over 25 years. He is the founder of the dental Wellness Center, and he’s working to treat oral infections that may have symptoms or may be hidden to help us live happier and healthier lives. Dr. Mark, tell us a little about your personal life more about your work and why you do what you do.

Unknown Speaker 0:42
Yeah, well,

Dr. Marc DiNola 0:44
I wanted to be a dentist since I was eight years old. So I’m kind of living that part of my life in the background, you guys can think of that. I have four beautiful, healthy children. And

Unknown Speaker 0:55
I have a practice of change locations. And I wanted to be a dentist. So I can concentrate on continuing education. So I’m kind of a junkie. So that’s why I came across your podcast also just learning different things from different people. My passion is really about doing things right. In terms of biological approach being the fact that we need to have biocompatible materials in our bodies, if we’re going to, you know, replace a tooth or any kind of part of our body, for that matter. It needs to be as biocompatible as possible. And so I look for,

Unknown Speaker 1:34
you know, these things are in people, there’s 100 million Americans with amalgam fillings in their mouth. And you may know, they call them a silver fillings, but we call them mercury fillings, because just like the cornflake, they’re made, they’re made up of more than 50% Mercury. So. So there’s a danger in that we could talk about all these types of things. But I guess my passion is kind of being like a Sherlock Holmes and investigating potential hidden infections or underlying infections that have systemic effects. That’s best way to say it. The other part of it

Unknown Speaker 2:08
is you just tell us that cornflakes are 50% Mercury.

Unknown Speaker 2:12
Cornflakes or 50% corn right. Now, they’re more than more than 50% corn. Sorry, I maybe didn’t say it that fast, but they’re correctly.

Unknown Speaker 2:22
But they have mercury in them? Well, they probably do. I mean, they have glyphosate for sure. Okay, so so we shouldn’t probably cornflakes anyway. How did that come to be that we just put started putting mercury in people’s teats teeth? That seemed like a very good idea? Oh, that’s a great question. Because I actually study history quite a bit, because I tried to find out why we’re in the, in the,

Unknown Speaker 2:46
you know, dumbfounded nature of a lot of things like the medicine. I heard Dr. Davis’s talk you had and, I mean, there’s some really crazy things happening. But it was, it was a necessity, probably, it was like the necessity as Mother of Invention kind of idea. And I’m not gonna blame the French or the Germans or anybody. But, you know, the Germans discovered it, and the French brought it here. So, but really, it was a substitute for gold. Because gold, of course, was was expensive at the time. And it still is, and so they didn’t have composite resin fillings until the 70s. So you can see how there was a need, you know, to replace parts of teeth with something other than a precious metal, which is quite expensive. So it came out of that industry, honestly, I mean, this is why I talk about history, because it came out of that industry when they’re trying to get silver out of or and they use a Mercury you probably know cyanide, Mercury and things for not saying mercury fillings have cyanide on that same

Unknown Speaker 3:48
but they the history is that they use it amalgamation to draw out the precious metals out of the or, and then they they heat the metal and vaporize the mercury. So that that sort of idea came to to be you know, let’s let’s add a few things like copper zinc. So they made it an amalgamation that could be used by placing in your teeth. And it actually hardens over time. And you probably maybe you’re familiar with what happens there. But the big thing is that there’s chronic vapor coming off of these things all the time. So So now that we have substitutes like porcelain, I mean, I can make a crown in my office in the same day. So we have a lot of new technology and we don’t need to use this anymore. And so my goal is just to rant about this somewhat to explain FTAs position on it and to educate the public about

Unknown Speaker 4:45
why this probably is not a good thing to have in your body. That’s kinda

Unknown Speaker 4:50
so are people. Are there, dentists out there who are still using it. Yeah, and you know, most people will deny that they are because it’s really to me, I think it’s frowned upon

Unknown Speaker 5:00
You know, in terms of aesthetics anyway, in terms of the way it looks, but I would say 50%, according to the American Dental Association, still placing it now, before air, we talked about how they’ve made a statement about it. Now the FDA is statement was, maybe there were not certain people that should have mercury in their mouth, which is kind of a stretch. Anyway. But so pregnant women, nursing women, women who want to become pregnant. So then you have this whole group of people, their kidney disorders, anybody with neurological problems or mental health issues. So it’s pretty much anybody, honestly, when you start to look at it 65 70% of the population. So I’m not here to beat up the FDA on site. All I’m saying is like, maybe they’re trying to say, this is something we should move away from. I try to be pretty diplomatic when I talk about this, because it’s a very strange thing. But you know, things that become things that are now common knowledge, we’re like, Well, you know, about Copernicus, and,

Unknown Speaker 6:06
you know, and you kind of challenge authority, and I’m not trying to do that either. I’m just trying to say things take time to move. Uh, chiropractors, chiropractic is a good example, that wasn’t really something that was on people’s radar until there was about certain thing is like, 20% of the population like adopted it. So these are the things that are. So you could say, Yes, I mean, the answer is yes. It’s still being used. And yes.

Unknown Speaker 6:32

Unknown Speaker 6:34
I mean, there are so many substitutes, we could we can go into but yeah, well, that makes sense, is that it’s almost a third of Americans that have this. And you mentioned, I forget what what it is, you said, it’s not necessarily like it’s entering my bloodstream through my tooth, it is, it’s like a vapor. Is that what you said?

Unknown Speaker 6:54
Yeah, so that’s nice to clarify that, well, really, there’s there’s constant mercury vapor coming off of any amalgam filling, no matter how old it is. One of my first questions was, why is it still there, if it keeps coming off, and that’s really about the density of it, rather than the volume of it. So there’s constant vapor coming to the top, and there’s some electro microscopic

Unknown Speaker 7:17
imaging of like, it looks like after a rain and there’s little puddles. So there’s vapor, there’s liquid mercury on top of fillings that comes off. So therefore, hot liquids and, and grinding your teeth, and those things can make more vapor come off. And in fact, most of its inhaled or swallowed.

Unknown Speaker 7:36
And so that’s the way it gets in our bodies, we can talk about the pathways and all that jazz, but I think I want to just say that

Unknown Speaker 7:44
we were talking about this before, but safe removal is required, it can be done, of course, you can also take the lead paint off your house by sanding it, and without a mask on. And you probably be okay. But you know what’s happening, there is a good example of what we’re doing. And so we cool it nicely, we could talk about the procedure. But people need to know that they have to have a qualified person. And we’re trying to train a traditional dentist about this, just to get it out there so that people aren’t hurt.

Unknown Speaker 8:18
I think sometimes we take for granted that the speed and volume of new information in any professional field. It’s difficult for everyone to keep up with and there’s probably some some dentists out there who are, you know, maybe towards the end of their career. So they’re not necessarily staying up to date on everything. And maybe it’s not even possible stay up to date and everything, which is why it’s so important when you’re talking about something like this, that you are going to somebody who is in fact trained and understanding of the proper techniques. Yeah, I guess without throwing any particular organization under the bus, I would say that it’s been known for many, many years, and it’s a problem. However, like I’m saying, the the now’s the time. I mean, with everything that’s going on now. It’s like Dr. Dave is talking about statins and all these things. I mean, we really need to educate the public that it’s not innocuous to take any of these pharmaceutical drugs, and they cause deficiencies and all kinds of things. So there’s, yeah, there’s just a new paradigm needs to be observed where, like, let’s look at the truth. And this is what I’m upset about with some of the shutting down of public discourse about things that bothers me quite a bit.

Unknown Speaker 9:38
Yeah, well, that certainly.

Unknown Speaker 9:41
It makes it really hard for consumers of of health care and medicine and of interested in being a healthy person. I’m interested in having a healthy mouth I’m interested in having healthy teeth. So if I don’t know about this stuff, then I don’t know about this stuff. So

Unknown Speaker 9:59

Unknown Speaker 10:00
The proper way to do it you, you you mentioned and why don’t we just close that loop? How do I know if the the doctor or the dentist I’m working with knows how to do it?

Unknown Speaker 10:10
Well, there are a few things, there are a couple of organizations that that represent holistic or biological dentist, I kind of say integrative now, because I talk about things like thyroid disorder being disrupted by thyroid being disrupted by Mercury. But I guess the the protocols can be had on my website, you know, I could pitch my website is Md Dental, wellness center.com. But the I O empty train me and I probably like could say they save me save my life or whatever, I really wanted to be like dramatic about it.

Unknown Speaker 10:44
But I mean, in terms of my brain and my health and my understanding about my own work, it’s, it’s organizations like that that have come ahead of you. So I always honor my teacher.

Unknown Speaker 10:57
And people that are ahead of me, but the IA om T, which stands for the International Academy of oral medicine and toxicology.

Unknown Speaker 11:06
They have, they have a lot of nice educational materials for the public on there. And they’ll show like the protocols in a video form, which is, which is really nice. But for all intents and purposes, what we’re trying to do is pay attention to the particles and the vapor trying to let them be taken away from the patient’s body not put back in. So we isolate with rubber dams, which might be remembered, know what they are kind of isolate one tooth or two teeth at a time or more quadrants. And that that’s a non latex. So there’s no vapor coming through there and the patient has oxygen on their, their nose, and they’re getting oxygen, they’re covered completely with the paper. We also have a nice one for maybe those that are a little more claustrophobic where we can, they can see straight through like a giant shield. And it’s kind of funny, because it looks like the opposite of it has mask loop, but it has the mouth open. So it’s kind of like funny, because what we’re used to seeing these days, but that protects the patient, skin, and hair. And we’re collecting sort of this scatter that happens, which is research is showing it’s about 20 centimeters of scatter of these small particulates, and the small particulates off gas vapor. So it is something we actually remove out of the office. And this is a scary thing. I mean, with all the things, all the toxicity that we have in mercury already. But anyway, so the patient has the air we have our Mercury masks on. So I have my loops and my Mercury mask on and I I call myself a silver miner now because I’m actually taking out this stuff and is 30 30% Silver, actually. So it has quite a good if you want to say you know if that was if that was an or that would be quite an amount, a good amount. You struck that one. But we can mine all the humans and I’ve said all this mercury out of their bodies. So I feel like this is a passion. I don’t want to like denigrate anybody in my field because part of my challenge is that I always wanted to be a dentist and trying to talk about this without and being sensitive about it.

Unknown Speaker 13:17
At the same time, I’m looking at other challenges now like rebuilding bone, you know, with our nutrition that we have today is terrible. So those things are, we could do a second podcast if you want to just talk about how we kind of try to help people heal in their jaws, in their jaw bones are very susceptible to something called a vascular necrosis, which can be from trauma it can be from

Unknown Speaker 13:42
it can be from root canals, it can be from extracted teeth, when we don’t get a rapid revascularisation of bone once it’s injured in the mouth is a weird place because there’s 700 species of bacteria and it’s very inhospitable to healing. So you have to kind of get re you have to get kind of primary closure which is difficult in the mouth sometimes when you’re taking out a tooth. So we’re using platelets for the patient now to make a really beautiful blood clot which is antimicrobial and it sets the scene for bone growth which is the main primary goal is to get early angiogenesis, which is blood vessel formation. Right behind that is this matrix of in the socket is this matrix of platelets, which are releasing growth factors which initiate all this stuff. And so we’re using with implants and that kind of thing. But, but anyway, the that’s something that’s sort of like another fringe thing that I think I’m involved with in terms of maybe not being honest about really what’s happening to the human body when a tooth removed. And so these are all or devitalised with the root canals and and mercury in a in a tooth can cause

Unknown Speaker 14:52
problems with blood flow around the gums and cause bone loss. So these are all these are all things that pay attention to it.

Unknown Speaker 15:00
Mmm, I forgot your question was how you do it. But basically, we don’t want to introduce this stuff back. So we have also a HEPA filter, which, which also has sulfur

Unknown Speaker 15:13
layer which which which scavengers, the Merc.

Unknown Speaker 15:19
Free I have a negative ion generator as well which it’s a one room that’s going to exclusively for this.

Unknown Speaker 15:27

Unknown Speaker 15:30
that’s about it, I would say I use some, we use some chemistry which is used in industry, which is high sulfur chemical that I never put it on skin, but I put it on the my gloves outside and my and some of the things we’re working, but I can go on and on. We also give the patient activated charcoal, swallow. So they have that charcoal in their belly, that there’s a lot of different things we do to prep. But this is the stuff I want to talk about. This is what I want to let the world know. I mean, not that I’m going to tell the whole world but you know what I mean?

Unknown Speaker 16:03
One person that sounds digital now and it’s it’ll be there.

Unknown Speaker 16:08
That is the truth. I love it. Yeah.

Unknown Speaker 16:11
And I’m certainly grateful for for the work and and for the awareness. Because if you don’t know that you don’t know. So

Unknown Speaker 16:18
Well, that was some solid ones already. Dr. Mark, but the people are ready for that difference making tip, what do you have for them?

Unknown Speaker 16:25
Well, it’s just so funny, because I always talk about just moving. And I love your podcast with people talking about breathing and moving. And so really the best thing you could do, and it’s more powerful than any kind of diabetes medication, if you’re diabetic is to move, you know, move 30 minutes a day walk is really the the best thing. But yeah, I mean, that’s, that’s a tip, but it’s like, kind of everybody should know that. You know, and I look at a lot of the ancestral stuff, we should be moving a lot more than we are, honestly. So I mean, that’s my tip. But the tip is if you have great feelings, you should be looking for someone that could do this very specific work and, and really take care and attention to how you’re treated in terms of like intake and, and ask the hard questions once that once you learn about this, and hopefully people learn from this discussion, but

Unknown Speaker 17:18
you know, it’s it’s the most toxic non radioactive material. So it’s just something that shouldn’t be in our mouths.

Unknown Speaker 17:28
There’s a couple of tips, I guess, there. I think that that is good stuff that definitely gets a come up.

Unknown Speaker 17:33
Dr. Mark, thank you so much for coming on. Where can people learn more about you give us the website again, please? Yeah, MD dental wellness center.com And I have wet I have also a YouTube channel. Ma RC Denali do n o a, although I haven’t really done much there lately. I have a nice conversation with a doctor avid who’s a host functional medicine doctor friend of mine and we talk very casually about patients and so it’s nice to just see somebody before you maybe reach out.

Unknown Speaker 18:06
But I can also help you know, steer people towards somebody if there was a you know, I don’t get paid for any of that kind of stuff. But I mean, I would. Best thing to do is look up your zip code and your state on the Academy website.

Unknown Speaker 18:22
Give us the Academy website again. Yes, I ao M t.com or.org. International Academy of oral medicine toxicology. Now there’s a lot of there are a lot of free things to read. And that’s kind of what people need to do is just educate themselves about whatever. That’s what your podcast is showing, you know, whether it’s crypto or

Unknown Speaker 18:46
you know, eating bread, right. Something

Unknown Speaker 18:53
you tend to cover a lot of ground on the show. No, I love what you do. Yeah, I mean it’s it’s great.

Unknown Speaker 19:00
That’s why That’s why you have so many problems.

Unknown Speaker 19:03
Exactly right.

Unknown Speaker 19:05
Love it. Have you enjoyed as much as I did show Dr. Mark your appreciation and share today’s show with a friend who also appreciates good ideas go to MD dental wellness center.com and check out the great resources find Dr. Marks YouTube channel, it’s ma RC D I N O L A and then go to the international I ao M t.org. Or is it IAOMOTIAO mt it’s really challenged. I mean, I have a joke about the

Unknown Speaker 19:40
trying to spit that out. So you’re getting better at it.

Unknown Speaker 19:45
And certainly if you are one of the 100 million Americans that have gray fillings, do take a proactive take proactive action and have them removed replaced. So thanks again Dr. Mark. Thank you

Unknown Speaker 20:00
And until next time keep fighting the good fight we’re all in this together
