Biological Dentistry

Biological Dentistry is concerned with the whole body effects of all dental materials, techniques and procedures.

The following illustrate how the philosophy of Biological Dentistry affects our practice:

  • Toxic dental materials are used in most dental practices.
  • Understanding that mercury is toxic, we believe that it’s use should be avoided in the mouth.  It has the potential to create health problems.  If it is removed, the SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique) should be used.
  • We recommend alternatives to fluoride for cavity prevention.
  • Nutrition is usually the most important factor to consider for dental and medical concerns.
  • The health of the teeth and gums directly impacts your overall health.
  • We believe you are in charge of your dental health and dental care.  Which means that we want you to have “healthcare freedom”.  You deserve “informed consent” to make the best decisions possible.


Perhaps your dentist or hygienist don’t take these topics seriously.  Even worse, you may have felt shamed by your dentist or hygienist that you asked about them.  We share your concerns.

Dr. Harju has unlearned many dogmas that bias traditional dentistry and medicine in order to find answers for himself and his family.  That has poured over into his professional dental practice. 

As an Accredited Member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), Dr. Harju uses the SMART protocol for mercury amalgam removal.
