As Stewards of Good Health and a Healthy Planet ™, we are dedicating to providing both consumers and dental practitioners the education and tools they need to get involved and start making a difference. At the forefront of this focus is acknowledging our impact on the environment and determining what we can do as individuals to reduce our own footprint as well as our footprint as consumers and practitioners.
As consumers, we choose our environmental initiatives with how we spend our dollars.
As dental practitioners, we make our impact by demonstrating leadership and providing education.
Below are two ways for both sides of the spectrum to get involved. And stay tuned, because we’re not finished yet! We’re constantly devising new ways to make a difference.
Green My Dentist
Do you love your dentist but don’t love the waste and pollution often caused by traditional dental procedures? Let your beloved doc know how you feel! The unfortunate truth is that dental offices contribute millions of liters of toxic chemicals, billions of pieces of plastic, and tons of mercury waste in landfills each year. But the good news is… it doesn’t have to be this way!
Dental professionals can choose clean, green methods that reduce waste and pollution, save energy and water and support your wellness lifestyle! But they won’t do it if we don’t ask for it! Follow the link below, download our Green My Dentist letter template to help your dentist go green; find Questions to Ask My Dentist; or search our database to find an eco-friendly dental professional in your area.
Save 90 a Day!
Did you know that the average person wastes 90 glasses of water each day while brushing their teeth? That means in the United States alone, we’re pouring 27 billion glasses of clean, drinkable water every day, just brushing our teeth.
We all know our water supply is precious and that’s why we’re asking you to take the pledge to turn off the tap while you brush. It’s easy, it’s free, and it’s something you can do right now. Even better, get your patients, your friends, and your family to join you in preventing this essential resource from going down the drain!
