PureLife Sponsors $500,000 Grant to Give Away 1,000 Amalgam Separators to Dentists in Light of Impending EPA Regulation

Share Article

PureLife Dental has set aside $500,000 to establish the Make a Difference Grant to give 1,000 dentists a free ECO II Amalgam Separator (valued at $500), just in time for the EPA’s expected finalization of a nationwide mandatory Amalgam Separator Rule in 2016. Together with dentists’ participation, PureLife’s grant will help minimize the amount of dental amalgam that enters wastewaters.

ECO II Amalgam Separator

The purpose of the Make a Difference Grant is to simultaneously educate dentists and make it as easy as possible for them to responsibly dispose of amalgam waste.

For a limited time, 1,000 US dentists can receive a free ISO-certified ECO II amalgam separator courtesy of a grant sponsored by PureLife Dental, a health- and environmentally-focused dental distributor. PureLife’s grant is timely, as it coincides with the EPA’s pending decision that would require all dentists to control mercury discharges by installing an amalgam separator as early as 2016.

The adverse effects of mercury on human and environmental health has been a hot topic recently. In fact, the EPA estimates that 50% of the mercury pollution in our wastewaters is attributed to dental amalgam. Fortunately, dentists can virtually eliminate their contribution to this problem by installing an amalgam separator. PureLife’s grant goes one step further to help eliminate the financial barriers of owning a separator, especially for smaller practices.

“I think there is a common misconception that going green is either too costly or requires a lot of time and effort. However, many dentists are not aware of how low-maintenance amalgam separators really are and how big a difference they can make simply by installing one in their office,” said PureLife CEO, Rodney Hanoon. “The purpose of the Make a Difference Grant is to simultaneously educate dentists and make it as easy as possible for them to responsibly dispose of amalgam waste.”

Through the Make a Difference Grant, PureLife continues its commitment of giving back to the dental community and the planet alike. Dental offices can take part in the grant and receive a free ECO II amalgam separator by contacting PureLife toll-free at 877-777-3303 x4 or online at http://www.PureLifeDental.com/Grant.
