Description

What exactly is “going green”? What does it mean to the practice of dentistry? Dental healthcare professionals know the importance of preserving the environment and the environment’s contribution to overall health and well-being. Research has shown there is a rising consumption of diminishing natural resources. Air and water pollution, growing landfills and the effects of global warming have added to this decline. Dentistry can lessen the combined environmental impact by utilizing the “Four R’s of Going Green,” namely, “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rethink.” This course will include the parameters needed to initiate a program for your dental practice that is simple and practical to implement.
