Digital Imaging & Mercury Filling Removal
With digital x-rays you're exposed to 90% less radiation compared to normal x-ray machines. And when it comes to the removal of your mercury fillings, we take careful precautions to collect the mercury prior to it entering the sewer system. This minimizes aerosols and prevents further pollution of our local waterways.
Overexposure to fluoride can be detrimental to your health! We are happy to discuss this with each patient, but most of our healthy-mouth cleanings are done without the use of any fluoride containing products.
A typical trip to the dentist can generate a lot of waste! We make every effort to use quality products by conserving resources and using products from recycled materials when possible that not only keep every person safe but will also be kind to the earth.
When possible, our office uses a Hypochlorous Acid fogger instead of other harmful chemicals to keep things clean. This electrolyzed water, made daily in our office, is 80-100 times more efficacious than bleach, yet is what our white blood cells naturally make so is completely safe.
Our water recycling system, the hydroMiser, reduces our water usage by 75%. Yes, you read that number right! It allows us to consistently obtain the highest performance while using significantly less water. We also use a Waterwise distiller to assure our water is consistently pure.
Energy Efficient Lighting & Energy-Saving Thermostats
Our office uses electronic fluorescent lighting to help conserve electricity and improve quality of light, which is especially helpful for cosmetic dentistry procedures. Our smart thermostats considerably reduce our energy consumption while still keeping everyone comfortable.
