Ohio Woman Wants Florida Law Changed

April 25th, 2008 by flanews

As if a trip to the dentist doesnít cause enough anxiety, now thereís concern about dangerous metals in the implants and crowns. Implants made in China and India and shipped to the U.S. arenít strictly regulated. The first confirmed case of lead contamination in a crown happened in Ohio earlier this year. Friday the women who found the lead crown, Faye Lewis, addressed lawmakers in Tallahassee to gain support for a bill that would implement stricter regulations on dental imports.

ďThe way it made me feel was at first fear, concern, and then anger and thatís why Iím here, Iím angry that someone can get away with this, many somebodies obviously,Ē said Lewis.

The bill cleared the Senate. Itís still waiting to be heard in the House.
