The American Dental Association (ADA) spent a fortune last month holding its annual convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If it had hoped for a public relations coup to help promote its aims, its hopes were dashed by the Pennsylvania chapter of the North American anti-mercury-amalgam movement, the “Pennsylvania Coalition for Mercury Free Dentistry”

The ADA fell on its face – and frankly – their convention worked against them. What I predicted in my September 26th, 2005 newsletter “Health Freedom” Counter Attacks – Big Time…” happened. Here’s what I said:

The American Dental Association (ADA) is about to get “publicly confronted” at their 2005 Philadelphia convention. In shock, I think, and reeling from the effects of lawsuits (“ADA Gets ‘Kiss of Death'”), the ADA may be totally unprepared for what will happen next. As we know, mainstream US dentistry is in bad shape.

And, what happens next? Well, the “Pennsylvania Coalition for Mercury Free Dentistry” is insulted, and incensed that the ADA would even THINK if holding a meeting in their state – and are gearing up to get in their face… They’ve put together a five pronged attack. I’ll tell you about one of those prongs:

Dentists – “Get your Head Out of the Sand…The ADA won’t protect you when the lawsuits start…… describing how the ADA abandoned one of its members in California, when it bailed out of a case claiming: “The ADA owes no legal duty of care to protect the public from allegedly dangerous products used by dentists. The ADA did not manufacture, design, supply or install the mercury‑containing amalgams. The ADA does not control those who do. The ADA’s only alleged involvement was to provide information regarding its use.”
