Amalgam poison

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?

I had false teeth when I got mugged in 2006 after a fight with ruthless criminals in Dbn.I am developing black stain like patches on one of the tooth when I remove my false.It doesn' t look good and I want to
have it removed and perhaps a gold teeth inserted.How much does it cost and is it covered by medical aid.I am on momentum
