Donald Robbins has had vast experience in many aspects
of dental health, dental education and safe dental office practices. He
has taught at the University of Pennsylvania School of
Dental Medicine and practices fulltime in his general
dental practice in the Delaware Valley. As part of a
pain management team in Philadelphia, he treated TMJ,
facial, head and neck pain patients with innovative pain
management care. He has treated patients suffering from
sleep apnea with conservative radiofrequency
cauterization surgery to improve their closed airways.
Over the last twenty years, Dr. Robbins has advocated
“cleaner” dental offices
under progressive BioSafeDentistry®
BioSafeDentistry is the
state-of-the-art dental practice paradigm he developed
to protect the patient's' overall health during dental
care. An example of his protocols is the elimination
of mercury (silver)
fillings as a material for dental fillings. He uses
high-efficiency office air cleaners, in his dental
office, to remove the harmful mercury vapors released
when old mercury fillings are removed. He also supplies
these cleaners to dental offices nationwide through
Politically active, he serves on committees trying to
abolish toxic materials and chemicals
found in typical dental offices. He has fought to
eliminate mercury from dental
use, from medical
vaccinations and from the environment. Because of his
awareness of toxic and harmful elements in a dental
office, his family practice has attracted many patients
who are environmentally and chemically sensitive, and
who require more intense
evaluation before dental
treatment can begin.
He is currently conducting research
and testing of oral mercury vapor levels in
author a scientific paper for publication.
In December 2010 he testified at the two day hearing by
Food and Drug Administration in Washington, DC on toxic
mercury exposure from silver amalgam dental fillings.
In 1994 Dr. Robbins had an article published in the
nationally refereed dental journal published by The
Academy of General Dentistry. The article documented his
review of the literature and investigation of the then
current diagnosis and treatment of human herpes viruses.
He currently writes articles for the Dental Page on the
website of the nationwide Autism Research Institute (www.autism.com).
They are sponsors of Defeat Autism Now (DAN) conferences
around the country.
He has authored two books (see "Author" page), the
latest being The Toxic Dental Office available on
the web (www.biosafedentistry.com) and in bookstores.
Dr. Robbins founded and directs The Dental Training
Center in Exton, PA, a school licensed by the
Pennsylvania Department of Education.
His Dental Assisting Program helps
individuals enter the dental assisting job market with
learned skills and office experience. The Dental

assisting learning materials and aids
