We consider taking care of the environment an OBLIGATION and a PRIVILEGE. The medical industry has become notorious for excess medical waste, excess packaging, and non-biocompatible products. WE REFUSE TO GIVE IN. Our team has joined forces with eco-friendly companies and developed an in-office, “green-friendly” protocol. It is part of us being a holistic dental office.
Green dentistry is a high-tech approach that reduces the environmental impact of dental practices and encompasses a service model for dentistry that supports and maintains wellness. Green dentistry meets the needs of health and wellness lifestyle patients and helps dental professionals protect planetary and community health.
We are able to reduce waste and pollution, save water and energy, maintain high-tech diagnostic equipment, and support a wellness mission.
