Our Green Credentials

As a dental practice, it’s important to not only provide excellent dental care to your patients, but also to demonstrate your commitment to sustainability and reducing your environmental impact.

Here are some ways our dental practice can and continues demonstrate green technology: One of the first steps we took was to switch to digital x-rays – for imaging inside the mouth (intra-oral imaging) and for scanning around the head (cone beam computer tomograph (CBCT) . Traditional x-ray machines use film, which produces harmful waste and requires a significant number of liquids to process and produce the x-ray film. Digital x-rays, on the other hand, use electronic sensors to capture images, eliminating the need for film and the associated waste. Additionally, digital x-rays require less radiation, making them safer for both patients and staff.

Another green technology we have implemented is the use of LED lighting. LED lights are more energy-efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs, and they last longer, reducing the need for replacements. LED lighting also produces less heat, which can help reduce our cooling needs and lower our energy usage.One of the biggest sources of waste in any dental practice is paper. By adopting digital technology, we have reduced the amount of paper we use and, in turn, reduce our impact on the environment.

We transitioned to a paperless system for patient records (including medical histories, treatment plans, and X-rays) and appointment scheduling. This has not only eliminated the need for paper products, but it also allows us to easily access and share patient information, saving us time and increasing our efficiency. We also communicate with patients and other healthcare providers using secure messaging and video conferencing tools, reducing the need for face-to-face consultations and travel.Dental practices generate a lot of waste, including disposable gloves, masks, and other materials. By using eco-friendly materials, we can reduce the amount of waste we produce and minimize our impact on the environment.

We use biodegradable and compostable materials wherever possible, including dental bibs, cups, and other disposable items. Additionally, we have implemented a recycling program to properly dispose of any waste we do generate. We separate plastics, paper, and other recyclables from our regular bin, ensuring that as much waste as possible is diverted from landfills.

In conclusion, our dental practice has implemented various green technologies and practices to reduce our environmental impact. We believe it is important to do our part in promoting sustainable practices, and we hope that other dental practices will follow suit. By taking small steps like switching to digital x-rays, using LED lighting, transitioning to a paperless system, implementing a recycling program, and sourcing sustainable supplies, we can all make a positive impact on the environment.
