Earn Your Eco-Dentistry Badge

Think you’ve got a green smile? Well, we’re happy to announce the launch of the Eco-Dentistry Badge, the newest way to reward you for visiting an eco-friendly dentist and making eco-friendly choices when it comes to your oral health!

The Eco-Dentistry Badge, available for free on Practically Green, invites you and your friends, family and patients to take specific actions and then share them with your community. Each initiative you take to lighten your environmental impact makes your smile a darker shade of green. Bragging rights, anyone?

The customized badge specifically encourages you to:

  • Use a toothbrush made from recycled or renewable materials, and properly recycle it when it’s time to swap for a new one;
  • Turn off the water while brushing;
  • Seek oral care products free from chemicals, toxins and alcohol;
  • Visit an eco-friendly dentist or participate in the EDA’s “Green My Dentist” campaign by sending a letter to your dentist encouraging them to “go green”.

Completing these actions allows allows you to earn 65 points in the “Health” category of Practically Green’s badges.  As a registered Practically Green user, you can share your progress earning badges through your own social media networks, and Practically Green will let other users in your community know that you’ve earned the Eco-Dentistry Badge!

The result of sharing your badge achievements and green actions is a beautiful example of how our individual behaviors impact the bigger picture. Earning the Eco-Dentistry Badge is a fun and easy way to remember that every action makes a difference and it will help stimulate the transformation of the dental industry and how patients seek wellness-based oral care.

The Eco-Dentistry Badge is available to all Practically Green users and it’s free to sign-up. Once connected, complete the “How Green are You?” quiz, which determines your current shade of green—ranging from barely green to superbly green.  You can immediately start earning badges and encouraging others in their network to do the same.

Be a catalyst for change and flaunt your green achievements: Do you have what it takes to earn your Eco-Dentistry Badge?
