Share Article

Dr. Ayah Bilbeisi is now SMART certified at her Urbandale, Iowa practice, a major feat in the practice of biological dentistry.

It’s a dentist’s responsibility to care for the entire well-being of our patients – not just their teeth.

Dr. Ayah Bilbeisi, a practicing Iowa dentist at Urbandale Smiles, has recently obtained her SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique) certification from the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) after undergoing intensive training on mercury-safe and biocompatible dentistry practices. She is currently one of the only SMART-certified dentists in Iowa.

Few dentists have the expertise to extract amalgam fillings without subjecting the patient to harmful concentrations of mercury vapor while drilling. Dr. Bilbeisi’s SMART certification is a major feat in biological dentistry, a dentistry practice that focuses on a person’s entire well-being while treating oral health.

Dr. Bilbeisi aims to offer her patients an exceptional holistic dental experience. She stated that she strives to put the health of her patients above all else, because she understands that oral health influences the entire human body. “It’s a dentist’s responsibility to care for the entire well-being of our patients – not just their teeth,” says Dr. Bilbeisi.

Steffany Mohan, DDS, a Des Moines dentist who works closely with Dr. Bilbeisi at Urbandale Smiles, has great belief in Dr. Bilbeisi’s dental expertise, and is extremely supportive of her mission. Dr. Mohan states, “We know that not many people look forward to going to the dentist but knowing that we’re providing such safe treatments we hope will put patients’ minds at ease.”
