Abstract:

Mercury hygiene is a concern in both military and civilian dental facilities. The purpose of this report was to determine the adequacy of the mercury hygiene practiced in USAF dental facilities. The data was derived from mercury vapor surveys accomplished over a one-year period from 120 USAF dental clinics. The surveys were accomplished by bioenvironmental engineers at the respective bases. Results of the survey indicate that the mercury levels in USAF dental facilities are within acceptable limits. Author
