A New Perspective on Sustainability

Do you know that by simply encouraging and providing preventive care that we are working together with our patients to contribute to sustainability? Every time a patient has to make a trip to our office for care, it creates Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. By being diligent about your preventive care, you are reducing your commutes and thus reducing GHG emissions.
Preventive care also improves your oral health and reduces the need for complex procedures, which not only reduces your commutes, but also the PPE, dental supplies and sterilization supplies needed for the restorative visit(s).
What else can you do?
- Schedule multiple appointments at the same visit. Combine your restorative appointments such as fillings or crowns, with your hygiene appointment.
- Schedule multiple family members appointments on the same day.
- We’ll do our part by providing excellent dentistry at every visit.
All of these are ways to reduce GHG emissions by reducing the number of trips made to our office.
