Dental Amalgam Separator Pilot Project

Organization(s) Vermont Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description DEC has is conducting a dental amalgam separator pilot project. Agency staff conducted field observations on 19 separators (6 different types) and will prepare a report for Vermont dentists that will help guide them on considerations for choosing an amalgam separator. The report will be available online. The amalgam separators included in the pilot are: AB Dental Trends, Air Techniques, Bio-Sym Medical, Metasys, Rebec, and Solmetex. There are currently no requirements for installation of separators in Vermont, although there is pending legislation that would authorize the Department to develop best management practices that may include amalgam separator requirements.
