Outreach to Dental Offices - Connecticut

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description Since the fall of 2000, the CT DEP Office of Pollution Prevention has been partnering with the CT State Dental Association (CSDA) to provide assistance to its members on ways that a dental office can help to protect the environment. A guide was produced titled "The Environmentally Responsible Dental Office" by the CT DEP and the National Wildlife Federation that was distributed through the CSDA. As a follow-up to the guide, the CSDA and CT DEP have worked together to create a statewide pick-up of unused bulk dental mercury from dentists. This effort resulted in 412 pounds of mercury being collected. The CT DEP Office of Pollution Prevention continues to provide assistance to dentists on waste reduction and how to properly manage wastes from a dental office on an as-needed basis.
