If Your Dentist Wants to Put ‘Silver’ Fillings in Your Child’s Mouth, Tell Him ‘No’

U.S. Government Calls for the Phase-out of Dental Mercury Amalgam

"In an extraordinary development that will change the global debate about amalgam, the United States government has announced that it supports a “phase down, with the goal of eventual phase out by all Parties, of mercury amalgam.”  This statement – a radical reversal of its former position that “any change toward the use of dental amalgam is likely to result in positive public health outcomes” –  is part of the U.S. government’s submission for the upcoming third round of negotiations for the world mercury treaty."

As someone who was a victim of dental mercury amalgam poisoning (and has since recovered) I am happy this is FINALLY happening.  It took way too long to accomplish, though.  This is an example of buyer beware.  just because your doctor and the government say it's safe, doesn't mean it is.  You MUST do your own research and trust your gut!
