Are you ready for amalgam phase-down? How the Minamata Convention impacts your Dental Practice

The United Nations imperative to reduce exposure to environmental mercury exposure, embodied in the Minamata Convention, has profound implications for the practice of dentistry through its requirement to phase down the use of dental amalgam.  The momentum to implement the recommendations of the Minamata Convention is now building and FDI recognizes the importance of taking a proactive role in the amalgam phase-down discussions and leading the debate on the implications of this decision for global oral health and on the practice of dentistry. Organized in partnership with the International Association for Dental Research, this session carried the debate forward.
