Do You Support Sustainable Development in Dentistry?

DRNA is proud to launch our Sustainable Development in Dentistry certification program, which will celebrate those dental practitioners who believe in Sustainable Development and follow the regulations supporting it.

What is Sustainable Development?

Our Sustainable Development Program is designed to support and recognize dentists and their practices that are engaging in activities that support the greater mission of sustainable waste recycling within the industry.

Why Does DRNA Support Sustainable Development?

Human health, ultimately, hinges on the health of our environment. We are committed to the overall mission of the program.

On a global scale, we are committed to enhancing human health and safety worldwide by upholding the requirements and guidelines presented by the Minamata Convention, which calls for the eventual phase-out or reduction of mercury used in dental amalgam, along with strategies for safer storage and disposal.

“Kerr is highly committed to the environment and pleased to support DRNA’s mission to see that the environmental aspects of amalgam are addressed in the most satisfactory manner. Given the upcoming EPA federal rule on amalgam recycling, we are keen to do our part to educate the dental profession on the best solutions in place to address this important environmental compliance issue.”

– Todd Norbe, President for Kerr Corporation, North America
