Dear Brenda,  
As a member of my Mercury Safe Dentist Internet Listing, I have some great news that I want to share with you in this issue. The DVD of our Seminar: How to Make Your Practice Mercury Safe: Minimizing Occupational Exposure to Mercury in the Dental Office is now available.
Together with Dr. Paul Rubin, one of the leaders in developing the clinical guidelines for a Mercury Safe dental practice, we have produced the definitive A to Z guide to making certain your practice is Safe from Occupational Exposure to Mercury.
The questions I'm asking is:  Do you really know how Mercury Safe you are?  The answer needn't be a guess.  You owe it to yourself to make absolutely certain that you are, for all concerned.

Mercury Free is Not Enough

There is a Significant Difference between being Mercury Free and Mercury Safe! Today, 52% of general dentists no longer place amalgam fillings. But the majority aren't Mercury Safe and it's no longer enough to just be Mercury Free.  After all, the greatest exposure to mercury vapor at the dental office does not occurs when amalgam fillings are placed, but when they are unsafely removed!  

Thanks to increased media interest, more and more people are aware of the toxic effects of mercury and want to know that they are being protected at the dental office. Click Here to learn more about why it isn't enough to just be Mercury Free. To read Dr. McGuire's informative article on Mercury Free and Mercury Safe: What's in a Name, Click Here.  
Promoting a Mercury Safe Practice
But the DVD isn't just about doing the right thing in protecting the dental team, patients and the environment from excessive and unnecessary occupational exposure to mercury. An entire segment is dedicated to showing how to cost-effectively promote and market a Mercury Safe practice. As you well know, gaining an edge in the competition for dental patients is particularly important in these difficult financial times.
