“With proper handling and recycling of amalgam waste receiving increasing scrutiny by various federal, state, and local regulators, we wanted to take a proactive position on our customers’ behalf to make sure that there can be easy access to best management practices education,” said Damien McDonald, Group President of Kerr. “DRNA is North America’s leader in dental waste management and recycling, and their course and supplemental waste management materials are innovative and helpful to our clinician customers, so the partnership is a natural fit.”

DRNA’s CE course is designed to ensure that participating dentists and their dental teams protect human health and the environment while keeping participants in step with legislation and regulations related to environmental health as it pertains to amalgam waste.
