fissure sealants are 100% safe- made from a resin.
All dentists are trained to remove amalgam fillings.

I guess al dentists are trained to remove amalgam fillings, but can all do it safely, also when i asked one he told me it would be unethical and against what he is taught as a dentist to remove them as there are no risks assocaited, basically he refused to do it. So apparently there are dentists who dont mind and can do it safely, do you know of any in JHB please?
