An article printed in the Seattle Post Intelligencer of April 19th, 2006 was forwarded to me by several patients. The article quoted a Dr. J. R. Kelly, from the University of CT and a spokesperson for the ADA, who stated that "..composite fillings need replacing after four to six years." I PM Dr. Kelly asking for the research corroborating his assertion. He has yet to respond.

I can easily show hundreds of composites that are well over 20 years in the mouth and still functioning perfectly!

Its unfortunate that because a person is associated with a teaching facility their mere opinion should be taken as gospel. As J.K. said "Facts, facts, facts not opinion, opinion, opinion!"

John:

Neither Dr. Kelly nor the Seattle Post Intelligencer has had the courtesy to respond - yet. I have drafted an article for the Intelligencer if they care to have a response for the publication.
