Our office works to decrease its impact on the environment in our daily practices:
Our x-rays are digital
- 90% less radiation to our patients and no harmful developing chemicals of which to dispose.
We use lead-free aprons when taking patient x-rays.
We use steam-based sterilization with no chemicals.
Our office uses only latex-free gloves.
We use sterilizable stainless steel suction tips rather than disposable plastic tips.
Instead of using plastic one-use headrest covers, bibs, and light
handle covers, we use cloth, which is washed on-site in our energy efficient washer.
- Our sterilization pouches are FDA-approved and reusable. These acts alone will divert from the landfill approximately 15,000 pieces of non-recyclable plastic from our office annually.
All cups in our office are compostable /biodegradable.
The toothbrushes we give our patients are made from recycled yogurt containers or bamboo.
Keurig K-cups are separated and recycled
Our office is all-digital. This reduces paper consumption for patient records.
Whenever possible, bills are paid, insurance claims, and communication is made electronically.
When we do use paper, it is eco-friendly and tree-free.
The office itself was constructed with the environment in mind:
-Our rugs are made from 43-47% recycled content.
-Our waiting room furniture has been re-purposed from a previous business.
-Our walls are painted with environmentally-friendly (low VOC) paint.
-The lights in our office are on motion sensors to save energy.
