At the dental practice we take the effect we have on the environment seriously. However, protecting patients from cross-infection is of utmost importance, so we do use many single-use products for each treatment.
We have instituted a number of initiatives to limit our environmental impact:
- We have a comprehensive recycling policy so that as little as possible of our waste goes to local landfill sites.
- We have invested in a water filtration system that cleans any toxic material from our spent water so that toxic material does not enter the local supply.
- We are working with our energy supplier to get our electricity supply from renewable sources.
