IAOMT has a lot of friends and allies among forward thinking professional groups and citizen activists. Here are some of their websites, arranged by these categories:
- The Maxillofacial Center
Dr. Jerry Bouquot’s oral pathology reference site, with information on many topics, especially his extensive study of NICO (also known as “cavitational osteonecrosis” or ischemic necrosis of bone marrow.)
- The Melisa Medica Foundation
The Melisa Medica Foundation is dedicated to the science of metal allergy and its diagnosis when treating so-called “incurable” diseases such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS or ME), Multiple Sclerosis (MS) or other autoimmune and allergic diseases. The website has an extensive library of articles on the subject.
- Natural Health Science News
Natural Health Science News™, a project of Praktikos Institute, collects all the day’s science news in the field of natural medicine. The site also serves as an information clearinghouse where consumers can learn about the latest developments in what may also be referred to as complementary and alternative or integrative medicine.
We seek alliances with organizations that advocate integrative health approaches, because the distinction between medicine and dentistry is artificial. Doctors who recognize that the mouth is a part of the body, and who practice medicine, and alternative medicine, aimed at mitigating the effects of metal allergy and toxicology can be found through several organizations:
The IAOMT is dedicated strictly to scientifically based biological dentistry. Dentists who are equally dedicated to practicing non-toxic dentistry, who may use techniques that are more alternative or holistic, can be found through these organizations:
- American Association for Health Freedom
The American Association for Health Freedom is the political voice for health care practitioners who use nutritional and other complementary therapies in patient care. Complementary health care providers and consumers need an advocate… on Capitol Hill, in the state legislatures, in the courts, and with the media.

Consumers for Dental Choice was formed in 1996 by consumer advocates for the purpose of lobbying and legal support in the fight to promote access to mercury free dental care. They are involved in numerous legal and consumer affairs including state and federal legislative and regulatory fights, as well as support for individual mercury free dentists whose licenses are under threat by state dental boards.
DAMS, Inc. (stands for Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions) is a nationwide consumer support group, a grassroots organization dedicated to educating the public about the health hazards associated with mercury that leaks from amalgam dental restorations. Networking and support for people whose health has been affected by dental mercury.
- Mercury Policy
The Mercury Policy Project is a project of the Tides Center formed in 1998 to raise awareness about the threat of mercury contamination. We work to promote policies to eliminate mercury uses, reduce the export and trafficking of mercury, and significantly reduce mercury exposures at the local, national, and international levels.

- FLUORIDEGATE the film
FLUORIDEGATE is a new documentary that reveals the tragedy of how government, industry and trade associations protect and promote a policy known to cause harm to our country and especially to small children who suffer more than any other segment of the population. While their motivation remains uncertain, the outcome is crystal clear: it is destroying our nation!
- Fluoride Action Network
The Fluoride Action Network is an international coalition seeking to broaden public awareness about the toxicity of fluoride compounds and the health impacts of current fluoride exposures. Along with providing comprehensive and up-to-date information on fluoride issues to citizens, scientists, and policymakers alike, FAN remains vigilant in monitoring government agency actions that may impact the public’s exposure to fluoride.
- Atlanta Dental Fluorosis Project
Lillie Center staff are reaching out into churches, schools, community groups, and the general population to find and photograph dental fluorosis on citizens’ teeth and to interview on film parents and teens who have the condition. Why do our kids have those spots on their teeth?
The site was developed by Bruno Sharp, D.D.S., as a result of his fluoride studies, to try to help individuals to find a professional who did not use fluoride in their practice, or give patients the option to waive fluoride treatment. In addition, there are other key features including access to the world’s largest database of abstracted and referenced articles, studies and news about fluoride.
