Dentists Targeted for Recklessly Polluting Water with Mercury Waste

Dental Amalgam

Story at-a-glance -

  • Dentists still using mercury fillings (wrongly called “silver fillings”) are the leading source of mercury in America’s wastewater entering publicly-owned treatment works
  • The EPA is on the verge of giving those dentists a free pass to pollute; it is withdrawing a rule that would order dentists to buy amalgam separators. The costs will be passed on to American taxpayers and families.
  • By creating unfair profits for pro-mercury dentists, EPA will increase amalgam use in America’s children and put their very health at risk.
  • In November the United States signed the Minamata Convention on Mercury, which binds signing nations to reduce many uses of mercury, including amalgam. Just 100 days later, the U.S. is about to break its promise to the world.
