As we all know, there has been a sharp increase in environmental awareness or “eco-consciousness” in recent years.
It follows that practicing “green dentistry” can only help contribute to more sustainable resources and a healthier environment.
Our office has always strived to adopt environmentally friendly practices. We feel it is our professional obligation and social responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible.
Medical and dental waste has significantly added to environmental problems stemming from single use plastic products. Much of this waste does not easily decompose. Knowing this, we try to use biodegradable and compostable products and/or reusable products – thus reducing energy consumption.
Green dentistry is an eco-friendly approach that is kinder to our planet creating a caring environment for our patients and provides social value to our community. Our hope is that the medical community will also adopt their models so we, together, can set the example for other businesses as well.
