As a San Diego Holistic Dentist, I am pleased to report that Californians for Green Dentistry launched an initiative to ban dental mercury on July 29, 2010, The pilot project, to create mercury-free dental zones in California. was begun in the city of Costa Mesa, in Orange County.
On October 19th, 2010 Costa Mesa City Council passed the Monahan Resolution, named for Councilman Gary Monahan, the first of it’s kind in the US. Monahan, who has an autistic son, has championed the Resolution to improve environmental health. Hopefully we can look forward to similar enlightened poltical action here in our own community.
