NORTHBOROUGH, Mass.—Solmetex, a global provider of amalgam separation technology and dental waste management solutions, has announced its continued support for America's Dentists Care Foundation's work in equipping Mission of Mercy and other mobile charitable dental clinics with a product donation of its NXT Hg5 product line valued at over $50,000 dollars.

To ensure the mobile charitable clinics continue to successfully function in compliance with the current EPA regulation on the proper handling of amalgam waste, Solmetex has donated 12 NXT Hg5 amalgam separators and 120 NXT Hg5 collection containers with recycling to be used by ADCF to support its operations through December 2020.

"Solmetex strives to a standard of excellence in our environmental products and our approach in the dental industry. We see this same standard of excellence being applied by ADCF and their inspiring work with communities in need. ADCF gives from the heart and we want to take part," said Kevin Danahy, Solmetex president.

Founded in 2008, ADCF provides the equipment and expertise necessary to properly support mobile charitable clinics that provide free oral health care to uninsured or underinsured adults and children across the United States. Since 2008, ADCF-supported clinics have provided $200 million in care to more than 285,000 patients in 31 states. In 2019, ADCF is equipping 29 mobile clinics across America and Solmetex is providing amalgam separators and collection containers for every supported clinic from 2019 until 2020. The NXT Hg5 amalgam separators ensure the safe removal of mercury and other harmful metals from dental practice wastewater in the effort to reduce contamination of public water supplies.

"ADCF's mission is to facilitate the delivery of charitable oral health care to the underserved. Partners like Solmetex allow us to perform at top capacity to deliver on that mission with the best dental equipment in the industry. We're thrilled, and so very appreciative, of Solmetex's donation of the NXT Hg5 product line as part of our commitment to excellence."
