Green Dentistry – Good For You AND The Earth

Natural DentistryAt The Center for Natural Dentistry, we believe that “Green” is more than just a color. Green is an obligation. Green is an Earth-friendly revolution. Green is an obligation to our patients and our planet. Green is the backbone of our operations.

We believe it is our obligation to our patients and our planet to take every measure possible to help protect our environment, our resources, and our neighbors. That’s why we’ve gone beyond low-wattage fluorescent lights and low-flow toilets at our office. We’ve gone the extra mile to be Earth-friendly, including:

  • Eco-friendly cleaning solutions to protect our water ways
  • Reusable towels to reduce waste
  • On-site, energy-efficient laundry facility to reduce waste
  • Bio-hazard disposal policies to ensure toxic chemicals (such as mercury) don’t pollute our environment
  • Comprehensive Patient Protection Program to ensure mercury vapors don’t pollute the air or our patients’ lungs
  • Paperless records to reduce paper consumption and waste
  • And much more

From electricity to water. From chemicals to toxins. At The Center for Natural Dentistry we take our environmental obligations seriously. To find out more about what we’re doing to preserve and protect our natural resources, give us a call and schedule a visit. We’d be happy to show you around and introduce you to San Diego’s Natural Dentist.

5 Ways to Green Your Dental Routine

You don’t have to be “San Diego’s Green Dentist” to make a difference in the environment. Follow these five simple steps and you’ll help save our natural resources every time you brush!

  1. Turn It Off! Don’t leave the water running while you’re brushing. Turn it only to rinse your mouth and your brush (you don’t even need to use water before you brush!)
  2. Go Natural. Next time you buy toothpaste, pick a natural option like Tom’s rather than your normal choice. Natural toothpaste breaks down easier and helps protect our water ways.
  3. Compost! Yup… compost. Buy a composting (or biodegradable) toothbrush. Typically made of corn starch, these brushes won’t clog our landfill (and some can even help your garden grow!)
  4. Soft as a baby’s…. Don’t brush so hard, slow down and be gentle on your gums. Not only will it save your gums, it will also make your toothbrush last a lot longer, saving you money and reducing waste.
  5. Floss! You hear it all the time: “Flossing is the most important thing you can do for your teeth.” But did you know flossing can also help the environment? By flossing regularly you’ll help prevent major dental work, saving you money and reducing amount of chemicals most traditional dentists use when filling cavities.
