Marie Flowers testified before a FDA Advisory Panel concerning the toxicity of dental amalgam mercury fillings during the December 14-15, 2010 Mercury Amalgam hearings.

Flowers, a board member and Coordinator in Virginia, at the time of this speech*, for the nonprofit support group, DAMS, Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions, testified she represented the 100,000 people who had contacted DAMS over the last 20 years seeking help for mercury poisoning from mercury dental fillings.

These people could not come to the hearings because they were either too poor, too sick, trying to pay off all their medical and dental bills, or were dead.

Flowers told of phone calls she received from poisoned individuals, and the high volume of calls received by Leo Cashman, Executive Director of DAMS.

Flowers challenged the dental professors on the Advisory Panel to teach dentists so they won't come out of school and poison their patients. She challenged the dental schools to raise their standards of care by teaching dentists how to safely remove mercury fillings and to refrain from mixing metals in the patient's mouths, causing dangerous galvanic currents.

Flowers asked the question, "Why should people call a housewife in Virginia to find out what happened to them in their dentist's office?"

The question was answered: because of the substandard and archaic curriculum taught in dental schools because of the American Dental Association's influence on the dental schools.

*Marie Flowers became President of DAMS in September 2011.
