News Advisory: Online Media Briefing to Be Held Tuesday, August 12, 1:00 pm EDT
Date:8/9/2014

ading terminology like "silver" and "amalgam" have effectively denied Americans the right to know that these dental filling are, in reality, made primarily from mercury.

“Our data will show a measurably disturbing lack of knowledge about dental mercury by consumers. And, just as critically, our findings reveal the sense of betrayal Americans feel about being misled”, Brown explained.

Why Now: In November 2013 the Obama Administration signed the international Minamata Convention on Mercury -- an agreement that commits our country to work with the global community to "scale down" and "phase out" mercury, including dental mercury, use worldwide.

Despite the U.S. commitment to the international community through the Minamata Convention to scale down mercury, the FDA's policy supports greater use of mercury dental fillings.

According to a rule published in the August 4, 2009 Federal Register: "any change away from use of dental amalgam is likely to result in negative public health outcomes" and "any change towards use of dental amalgam is likely to result in positive public health outcomes" …. " This policy, Consumers for Dental Choice believes, potentially could clearly put America out of compliance with key provisions of the Minamata Convention on Mercury.

When: Tuesday, August 12, 2014, 1:00 – 1:30 p.m. EDT
