BRIEF HISTORY

In 1984, thirteen dentists were discussing a seminar they had just attended on the dangers of mercury from dental amalgam fillings. They agreed that the subject was alarming. They also agreed that the seminar, though long on fireworks, was short on science, and if there really was a problem with dental mercury, the evidence ought to be in the scientific literature. So, like thirteen musketeers vowing “all for one and one for all,” they set out to find the evidence, or failing that, to sponsor new research that would provide the answers they sought.

Nearly three decades later, the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology has grown to over 600 active members in North America, with affiliated chapters in fourteen other countries. The years have been very fruitful, as the Academy and its members have chronicled and promoted the research that has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that dental amalgam is a source of significant mercury exposure, and a hazard to health. It has taken the lead in educating dentists and allied professionals in the methods of safely dealing with amalgam fillings, and safely disposing the waste. It has also led the way in developing more biocompatible approaches in other areas of dentistry, including endodontics, periodontics, and disease prevention. All this while maintaining the motto, “Show me the science!”

A more biocompatible approach is the hallmark of “biological dentistry.” In using that term, we are not attempting to stake out a new specialty for dentistry, but to describe an attitude that can apply to all facets of dental practice, and to health care in general: to always seek the safest, least toxic way to accomplish the mission of treatment, to do it while treading as softly as possible on the patient’s biological terrain.

The International Association of Oral Medicine & Toxicology Philippines is a non-profit organization which started in 2009

We are an affiliated chapter of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, North America which is based in the United States.


Our Mission

The fundamental mission of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology is to promote the health of the public at large.

Essentially, the Academy shall continually examine and compile scientific research relating to the biocompatibility of oral/dental materials. This agenda should ensure a more informed use of these materials in clinical practice. Within these confines, the Academy shall:

    1.Accumulate and SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION ;
    2.RELEVANT RESEARCH and EDUCATION;
    3.FUNDING for relevant research;
    4.EDUCATION of the public, professional organizations, and other groups, by providing SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION;
    5.NON-INVASIVE SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND therapies;
    6.ADVISORY SERVICES if/when required.

DR. LILLIAN LASATEN-EBUEN

Dr. Lillian Lasaten-Ebuen, founder of IAOMT Philippines, started campaigning that mercury-based dental amalgam is dangerous for the health of dental patients, dental professionals and to the environment. She is been urging the dental association for the gradual phase out of mercury amalgams in patients. “With a high concentration of mercury, amalgams can leach into the mouth and in the long run cause birth defects, mental retardation and a host of other illnesses such as cancer and respiratory related problems.”, she said.


 

IAOMT CODE OF ETHICS

 

First, do thy patient no harm

Be ever aware that the oral cavity is part of a human body, and dental disease and dental treatment may affect systemic health of the patient.

Never place personal gain before the health and welfare of the patient.

Conduct yourself in accordance with the dignity and honor of a health professional and the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.

Always attempt to provide treatment that has valid scientific support, but keep an open mind to innovative or advanced treatment possibilities.

Be ever mindful of clinical results seen in our patients, but seek valid scientific documentation verifying the results.

Make every possible attempt to provide patients with scientific information that can be utilized for informed decisions.

Be ever aware of the possibility of potential harmful effects of materials and procedures utilized in dental therapy.

Attempts, whenever possible to preserve human tissue and utilize therapies that are the least invasive possible.
