We Are Green!
Green is the prime colour of the world and that of which it’s loveliness arises.
– Pedro Calderon
You will be pleased to know that we are very mindful of the environment. We are very proud to have been featured in the spring 2009 issue of Dental Practice Management Magazine for our green initiatives. Having built the office from scratch, we had many opportunities to make the right choices for our planet. As an example we elected to use low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) paint, and the flooring in the operatories are made from Marmoleum which is a natural alternative to Vinyl.
Efforts are also made in the day-to-day operations of the practice to minimized our impact on the environment: Patient files are digital instead of using paper files; We use digital radiography which not only reduces radiation for patients and provides enhanced images, it also eliminates the use of chemicals needed to develop traditional radiographs. We use a dry pump rather than the more commonly used wet vacuum, thereby saving large amount of water consumption.
