A stunning report by Bank of America Securities advises that dental products company Dentsply, the #2 manufacturer of mercury fillings, realign its operations to sell only the resin and other filling materials.
The report came after the latest ADA meeting in San Francisco, where the buzz throughout the meeting was whether mercury fillings would be banned or phased out. This report is unlikely to be the last, as other securities analysts realize that companies who manufacturer mercury fillings are selling to a dwindling market and are putting their entire asset picture at legal risk.
The report confirms that the sole remaining supporters of mercury fillings are (a) the dwindling remnant of pro-mercury dentists, (b) their trade group the ADA, and (c) FDA’s out-of-touch Center for Devices.
