Recently, news stories have appeared on and regarding Bisphenol-A in dental sealants, based on a recent paper in the journal Pediatrics. Both AAPD Vice-President Dr. Joel Berg and AAPD Child Advocate and AAPD Head Start Dental Home Initiative Project Director Dr. Jim Crall were interviewed regarding the study, and the two articles are linked below.

Crall's quote in the story included:

"Frankly, I think the article is going a bit beyond the current level of evidence when it comes to pregnant women," said Dr. Jim Crall, a professor of pediatric dentistry at the University of California at Los Angeles. "And it’s maybe a little overcautious. The science around this is still pretty sketchy as relates to dental exposure."

For the article, Berg was referenced as:

Dr. Joel Berg, chair of Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Washington, strongly believes sealants are safe and effective. "There's more estrogen in a mother's kiss than there is in a sealant," he says.

In addition, Crall and Dr. Jed Best were contacted today by NBC Nightly News for a segment on how this new study shows that dental sealants used to treat cavities may expose children and pregnant women to BPA. Given that this segment is to be included on tonight’s broadcast out of New York City, NBC Chief Medical Editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman interviewed Best at his office this morning.
