Ty flew home from Kentucky, while I flew on to warmer weather in Orlando, Florida to film Matt Young of The International Academy Of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). Matt was presenting a paper on occupational exposure to dental mercury to the American Dental Education Association (ADEA), the group who sets ciriculum for dental schools.
The original plan was to arrive a day early and capture interviews with the dentists who are attending the conference. But the IAOMT asked that I refrain since they were invited to the ADEA conference to present this paper they didn’t want to upset any of the attendees.
It is widely known that older dentists who’ve worked around mercury for a long time can very easily become emotionally unstable, irrate and irrational when discussing the safety of mercury dental fillings. This makes sense since those are but a few of the symptoms of mercury toxicity.
So instead of grabbing interviews, I shot B-Roll around the hotel and went to the pool for some R&R.
