Campaign for Mercury-Free Dentistry (CDC)


Goal is to phase out the use of amalgam, a 50% mercury product -- worldwide. The recently concluded draft mercury treaty requires each signing nation to phase down its use of amalgam, and it provides a road map how. We aim to:

Educate consumers about the use of mercury in dentistry so they can make informed decisions
Stop dental mercury pollution
Protect consumers especially vulnerable populations such as children and the unborn from exposure to dental mercury
Empower dental workers dental assistants and hygienists to protect themselves from mercury in the workplace
Promote access to mercury-free alternatives to amalgam
