We, as an office are committed towards ensuring that we are doing our part to protect the environment and reducing our carbon footprint. When designing the office we kept our “Green Office” goal in mind to reduce the impact we have on our local and global environment. Here are the measures we have undertaken for a Green Dental Environment for our patients and staff.

Leed certified Vinyl flooring and carpet
Low VOC paints used throughout the office
Thermostat Programmable HVAC cooling system
Energy efficient Flourescent lighting throughout the office
Recycled wood in custom cabinetry (laminates have no PVC or Formaldehyde)
Software to decrease paper use

Computers programmed for Energy Conservation
Using Recycled Paper products as often as possible
Using Recycled/Remanufactured toner and ink-jet cartridges
E-file insurance claims
Itero scans for digital imaging

Recycled paper products for paper cups and paper towels.
Biodegradable Sterilization solutions used throughout the office
