Environmental Policies (The Green Dental Office Goal)

As part of the California Clean Environment Efforts, California has asked all dental offices to do their part to reduce hazardous waste and recycle as much as possible.

To do our part in this effort, we recycle as much of our paper products as possible and have installed dental bio-waste recovery units for all amalgam waste. We have also committed to convert to one hundred percent digital X-ray operations by 2013. This will dramatically reduce chemical x-ray developer waste. We are already in 100% percent compliance with dental film and amalgam recovery efforts. We are also replacing all incandescent lights in our facility with high efficiency fluorescent fixtures.
