What Is Eco-Dentistry?
Eco-Dentistry is a form of dentistry that strives to give patients the highest level of care in a manner that also protects our environment as much as possible. Eco-Dentistry benefits the environment, the dental practice and even the health of the patient.
How Does Dr. Subramanian Practice Eco-Dentistry?
We accomplish this goal through many ways, including:
- Using digital records, which result in no waste from paper.
- We neither use nor produce hazardous materials or waste.
- Using only BPA-free and Amalgam-free materials.
All the services we provide are done by keeping the environment in mind. Digital records, for example, eliminate the need to use paper, which greatly reduces paper waste and helps preserve trees.
An EcoCertified Dentist must undergo multiple inspections every year to receive their certification. Dr. Subramanian has consistently passed these inspections for over five years, showing a lasting commitment to practicing effective green dentistry.
What Is Green Dentistry?
Green dentistry makes use of technology and innovative practices to provide dental services that have the smallest impact on the environment possible. A dentist who regularly practices green dentistry will save water and energy, reduce pollution and minimize waste. These will all result in an overall smaller carbon footprint left by the practice.
Green dentistry benefits the patient as well. For example, we steam clean our dental instruments in an autoclave. The alternative would be to clean them with harsh chemicals that would bring with them a negative ecological impact. Not only does steam cleaning prevent these chemicals from harming the environment, but it also prevents patients from being exposed to them. We also perform X-rays via digital imaging, which drastically reduces the patient’s exposure to radiation.
