Accreditation

THE SAABP ACCREDITATION PROCESS

Become an accredited biological dentist or doctor

Accreditation by the SAABP certifies to the professional community and the general public that you have been trained and tested in the comprehensive application of biological dentistry, integrative principles of health; detoxification and healing - including current methods for safe removal of dental amalgam; its biological alternatives and the intricate link between systemic, gut and oral health. SAABP accreditation establishes you at the forefront of biological dentistry and demonstrates your commitment to furthering your knowledge of the oral health’s indisputable role in general health.

 Why Is SAABP Accreditation Important?

South Africa does not have an accreditation system like many other first world countries around the world. Having a medical or dental degree does not automatically imply knowledge or experience in practicing biological medicine or dentistry. Establishing a practitioner who has these core values is usually by word of mouth. Now more than ever, taking action to promote your understanding of biological dentistry and medicine is essential. In 2013, over 100 countries signed a United Nations mercury treaty known as the Minamata Convention on Mercury, part of which includes a global phase-down of dental amalgam and mercury-infested vaccinations. Practitioners need to be knowledgeable and trained in its safe removal from both the mouth and the body; as well as biological alternatives.

 

What this means is that there is a growing demand for “qualified” or “specially trained” biological dentists and integrative doctors - because patients and other medical professionals are purposefully seeking out practitioners to aid them.

 

By furthering your education and training with SAABP’s accreditation process, you will confidently be able to assist your patients to achieve a healthier state of being.

What Are The Requirements For SAABP Listing And Accreditation?

General member listing on the SAABP site implies that the practitioner is either an existing integrated medical doctor with training in functional or integrated medicine with an understanding of heavy metal detoxification; the link between oral and systemic health and has a biological approach to treatment OR a dental practitioner who has SAABP’s online basic modules. These modules are also available to the public who further want to understand the core principles of biological dentistry or medicine.

FULLY ACCREDITED BIOLOGICAL PRACTITIONER MEMBER ON THE SAABP SITE IMPLIES THAT THE PRACTITIONER HAS SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED A 15 MODULE COURSE AS OUTLINED BELOW

MODULE 1 : SAFE MERCURY REMOVAL ACCREDATION COURSE 

The Basics of Biological Dentistry modules below enable the average dentist to attain all the necessary knowledge to becoming a SAFE MERCURY REMOVAL Accredited dentist:

30 CPD POINTS : COST R 10500 for the module or R 8750  if commit to the full 3 module course.

The fundamentals of practicing as a biological dentist

All you need to know about mercury and its effects on the body

SAFE MERCURY REMOVAL technique and practice certification

The dentist’s role in environmental mercury

Full detoxification of Heavy metals from the body

Biocompatible restorative materials

A SAFE MERCURY REMOVAL member on the SAABP site implies that the practitioner has the necessary training (either through SAABP’s online training or previously through IAOMT) on mercury, including its effects on the body and its detoxification; safe mercury amalgam removal modeled on IAOMT’S SMART protocol; a thorough understanding of alternative biological restoration materials; a full guide to transforming his dental surgery into a biological studio.

SAABP’s modules include power point presentations, scientific articles and practical tips to practicing as a biological practitioner. It requires him/her to have done a practical patient case presentation of a basic amalgam replacement case, from examination to completion with focus on proper patient protection for optimal safety from unnecessary exposure; dentist and staff protection, including installation of an amalgam separator and heavy metal air purifier for proper environmental preservation. This Protocol ensures that all accredited dentists offer the same protocol and patient support. For those of you have been practicing safe amalgam removal to date, the addition of the separator and purifier will need to be incorporated into your practice/protocols. Once set up, you will need to take a video (a cell phone will do the trick) and send it to us showing you doing an amalgam removal case using the SAFE MERCURY REMOVAL TECHNIQUE ,modeled on IAOMT’s SMART TECHNIQUE. You will also need to complete the modules (SEE BELOW) on The Truth about Mercury: its Effects on the Body and Detoxification of Heavy metals from the body . When these two requirements have been met, we can list you as an accredited SAFE MERCURY REMOVAL  dentist on our site and market you to the public and fellow integrative doctors as that. Let us know how we can assist you to take these necessary steps.

SAABP has created SAFE MERCURY REMOVAL dental kits, heavy metal air purifiers and detox kits and has made it easy for dentists to obtain all the necessary gear required to protect themselves and their patients from mercury toxicity and facilitate its safe removal from the body.

There can no longer be excuses for the placement or unsafe removal of amalgam; or its impact on our environment – SAABP provides all the necessary tools to facilitate an effortless transition into safer biological practices which will leave a legacy rather than toxicity as their mark.

How Do I Begin The Process?

Its that simple!

You work at your own pace.

Please contact us if you require any further information.

"...Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant…?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

We hope this answers all your questions and that you are now ready to embark on a new phase of your career.
