Medidenta’s Amalgam Separator Program steps to the plate with a winning solution to eliminate the dental industry's annual average of three pounds of mercury waste from a typical dental office every year.

Industry leader announces the release of the Medidenta Amalgam Separator Program. Medidenta has been in the dental industry for over 67 years providing innovative solutions for the dental industry and has partnered with the highly acclaimed Mars Liberty Boss Amalgam Separator.

Chair side trap and Dentists central solids collector capture the bulk of broken amalgam fillings, but that’s not the issue for the EPA. A Dentist’s high speed drill reduces the amalgam into a fine dust, which, when mixed with water and the patient’s saliva, emulsifies it into a liquid waste stream that bypasses their physical collection traps arriving eventually into our water systems. It takes only a teaspoon of mercury to contaminate a 10 acre lake and impair fish consumption. It’s estimated that almost 60 million amalgam restorations take place each year in America. With a life expectancy of 10 to 15 years the EPA estimates an average of up to three pounds of mercury waste is produced by a typical dentist office each year.

“The Mars Liberty Boss Amalgam Separator is the only maintenance free solution to meet compliance regulations and allow us to do our part to keep our environment safe,” says Bob Achtziger, President & CEO of The Medidenta Mars Liberty Boss Amalgam Separator program starts at $599 and guarantees compliance in the program year after year.

By utilizing the Medidenta’s Amalgam Separator Program a Dentist will never change a filter and know their amalgam waste is effectively being removed. Implementing the Medidenta Amalgam Separator will make Dentist offices compliant immediately. Check out the Medidenta YouTube Channel for more information:
