Make sure that you carefully read the IAOMT’s Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) protocol recommendations and complete the course required for SMART certification before purchasing equipment.

The following lists contain purchase information for the equipment needed to successfully perform IAOMT’s Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART). Please note that new research and updated testing for these pieces of equipment are continually being produced, as the science of safe mercury amalgam removal progresses. Likewise, new products for amalgam removal are continually being developed. We will update these lists to the best of our ability as pertinent information becomes available. Please also note that you may choose not to purchase any of the items below and use your own sources for similar products as dentists often establish personal preferences for specific products based on their needs and experiences.

Additionally, any reference to a specific product, process, or service does not constitute or imply an endorsement by the IAOMT of the product, process, or service, or its producer or provider. At no time is the IAOMT making any representation or warranty regarding any of these products or services, nor will the IAOMT be liable for the vendor’s products or services. Note also that in some cases, we have only provided examples of products.

SMART is presented as a set of recommendations. Licensed practitioners must exercise their own judgment concerning the specific treatment options to utilize in their practices. The SMART protocol includes equipment recommendations which can be purchased from the lists below as packages or individually.

Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) Equipment List

For those members who are new, please purchase from each of the four SMART sections below.

A high-volume, at source, oral aerosol/air filtration vacuum system is an essential and mandatory component of the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique recommendations. Currently, there are three manufacturers who supply at source, oral aerosol/air filtration vacuum systems for mercury.

The IAOMT wants to make it as easy as possible for our members to get the recommended SMART items they need to practice mercury-safe dentistry. So, we are excited to announce that we have collaborated with Dental Safety Solutions to provide a collection of SMART equipment and packages for your convenience. You’ll be taken offsite for ordering and fulfillment by Dental Safety Solutions, and the IAOMT will receive a percentage of the profits from each sale.
