Dentists with Green Dental Hygiene Products

dental supplierNo, I’m not talking about actual green dental hygiene products! I mean dentists who are environmentally friendly of course! The term eco-dentistry is now being used to describe dentists who use products, technologies, and procedures that are safe for the environment. What are some of the ways you can go green in your office (or what should consumers look for)? One piece of technology to look for is digital X-ray machines. A digital X-ray machine can eliminate the use of traditional machines and reduce the amount of radiation exposure and harmful chemicals that are released.

Another way to go green is to use less disposable items. If you invest in energy-star washers and dryers, you can purchase reusable bibs, gowns, and head rest covers. Use biodegradable disinfectants and steam sterilization methods. When using restorations, choose adhesive, metal-free restoratives that use composite bonding or porcelain veneers.

Not only are green dentist supplies good for the environment, they tend to save you a lot of money (just like Dealon Dental saves you money!). Dentists – think about the benefits of going green. Consumers – Going to eco-friendly dentists is another way you can do your part to help the planet!
