It’s no secret that a huge portion of the mercury in the public water supply comes from the amalgam in dental wastewater. The dental community has made a serious commitment to eliminating this health and environmental hazard, and now the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing a new rule that would create an even stricter standard for reducing mercury waste.
There is no time like the present to make sure you understand exactly what the EPA’s proposed rule contains and what modifications in workflow and equipment will be required to remain compliant. Amalgam separators—currently required in only a handful of states—will become a critical piece of equipment in dental offices in the years to come.
Practices that start to prepare now will be ahead of the game in important ways. Planning for an equipment investment or upgrade will prevent workflow interruptions and make sure you avoid the costly penalties of noncompliance.
