Abstract:

The goal of this study is to measure the strength of association between chronic mercury exposure and the development of neuropsychiatric disorders. The hypothesis of this study is that long term low dose exposure to mercury by dentists is associated with a higher prevalence of neuropsychiatric disorder. Therefore, dentist with high tissue mercury levels will have a greater prevalence of neuropsychiatric disorders than dentists with low mercury levels.
