Dave Wentz: Appearance on The Dr. Oz Show an Amazing Experience

Oz DislaimHello, USANA family! I just had one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I was asked to participate in a segment of the two-time Emmy Award-winning The Dr. Oz Show in New York City. Talk about a true honor! I feel deeply privileged to have been asked to appear on such a well-known and well-respected television show.

horizontal_taglineOver the past few years, Dr. Mehmet Oz has become a good friend through our relationship as a sponsor of his foundation HealthCorps, and I was blown away when he asked me to talk about amalgam fillings and give a live demonstration during a segment of his show.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous. And to be more accurate, I was terrified. But I just thought back to all of the live shows that my dad, Dr. Myron Wentz, and I did for The Healthy Home tour and tried to channel all of that energy and excitement. It was incredible!

Shooting a television show in front of a live studio audience was a completely new and exciting experience for me. I don’t think I can describe the anxiety mixed with the pure adrenaline rush that comes with this kind of thing.


Dave Wentz speaks during the The Healthy Home book tour in 2011.

One of the reasons The Dr. Oz Show is so popular is because it offers various points of view on so many different health-related topics. Dr. Oz has multiple guests with different perspectives discussing relevant issues and presents them in a way that’s easy for people to understand. His show gives members of the audience the opportunity to make their own choices based on what they learn and, in turn, create healthier and happier lives for themselves.

Being asked to speak on a topic that I feel so passionately about was truly exhilarating. Demonstrating the dangers of amalgam fillings on such a popular and respected platform is a dream come true! Seeing the audience’s reaction as Dr. Oz and I demonstrated the release of mercury when brushing teeth brought back so many great memories of The Healthy Home tour. The entire time, my dad’s book A Mouth Full of Poison was running through my head, and I wished I had more time to delve deeper into the issues like the dangers of mercury toxicity.

It’s hard to fully explain what a wonderful experience this was, shooting a TV segment with Dr. Mehmet Oz. He is a true professional and really listens to his guests and respects what each of them has to say. This was an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I had a complete blast doing it!

    I was able to watch you Dave on Dr Oz yesterday. I had heard about the demonstration of the mercury vapor while you were on The Healthy Home tour, so was very excited to actually get to see it on TV. You did a great job by the way. I had my one amalgam filling removed at Sanoviv when I was there in 2008 for two weeks. I read ‘ A Mouth full of Poison’ when it first came out. An awesome book. I am forever grateful for USANA, I had a dramatic health improvement after I began USANA in 1997. Happy Easter to you and your whole family. Gratefully yours, Laura Barry

    Hi Dave,

    I’m Ulysses from the Philippines, and an independent associate of USANA since March of 2012. I’ve heard about the dangers of amalgam fillings and felt terrified since I still have these since my high school. If I have them removed, would its effect can also be gone?

    Thank you Dave and thank you USANA for the changed life you gave and happy Easter.
