Green Dentistry
Beiruti, N.
Green dentistry is a choice made by the dentist to practice his craft in a manner that lowers the impact of the dental practice on the environment. Dentistry is a "dirty" industry with a high usage of disposable materials that have a negative effect on the habitants, environment and earth. By practicing green dentistry, we are making a commitment to minimize waste and the carbon footprint of our practice. The following procedures should be adopted in our clinics to be as "green dentists": 1) Reducing of waste and pollution. 2) Saving of water, energy and money. 3) Using of high-tech in our practice. 4) Supporting of wellness lifestyle.
