If you are interested in protecting our city and communities from unnecessary pollution and waste, it’s time you discovered Green Dentistry. Green Dentistry is a pioneering state-of-the-art dental practice that cares deeply about building a sustainable future for all of us, and not just smile-wise.
They’ve designed their entire practice to reduce negative human impacts, and dentistry’s impact, on the environment. They are paperless. They use digital imaging and laser treatment technologies, plus BPA-free, organic and biocompatible products. Their carefully researched, steam-based sterilization system contains no harmful chemicals and reduces overall water usage. They even use environmentally friendly filtration technology, which allows safe removal of old mercury fillings while reducing disposable materials in their high-tech in-office laundry.
Mercury is incredibly toxic to the human body. Many patients with old mercury fillings have experienced serious health issues from mercury poisoning. Yet, the vast majority of people in the US do not know that silver fillings contain mercury. According to a recent survey, 92% of patients said they should have been advised about mercury toxicity before their silver fillings were placed. Mercury is a powerful neurotoxin that can cause neurological problems. It’s been linked to various autoimmune diseases, chronic illnesses and mental disorders. That’s why we are so careful about mercury removal.
Creating a truly eco-friendly dental practice where you can feel good about your contribution to the environment, your overall care, safety and smile results is the brainchild of Nammy Patel, DDS, Green Dentistry’s dental director and passionate devotee of reducing negative human impacts on the environment.
