1000 Friends Campaign on Facebook.com

The Children’s Heart Foundation is a great organization the goal of which is “to bring health, hope and happiness to children impacted by congenital heart defects, the number one birth defect in the United States. CHF accomplishes this goal by funding the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of congenital heart defects.” Recently, we have decided to promote awareness about this organization through what we have called the 1000 Friends Campaign. Our goal is to get 1000 friends to join our Facebook group (Joseph Spina III DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry). If we meet our goal, we will donate $1000 to CHF. We hope to accomplish this goal be May 16, 2009. This is the date of the annual fund raising dinner dance that is being held in Newtown Square, PA. Information about Children’s Heart Foundation as well as information about the dinner can be found on www.childrensheartfoundation.org.
Please join us in making the goal

As I understand the regulations, no new amalgam fillings can be placed. This step was taken because of concerns about mercury in the filling material. The American Dental Association’s official position on the subject is that dental amalgam is safe to use in new restorations, and that existing amalgam fillings have never been linked to any systemic health issues.
