I would get the test done first and then if it is positive ask folks what methods they used to bring those levels down.

Your testing does not have to start with the chelation process, hair, blood and urine can be tested first and then if it is suspected that you need them they can go on to doing tests using chelation.

What has you concerned about heavy metal poisoning? Just having a few fillings in your mouth is not a reason to suspect this IMHO.
