Eco-friendly New Year’s Resolution 2023
As we are coming close to the end of January already in 2023, lets have a look at how our New Year’s resolution is going so far, one of the main things we wanted to do this year is ensure we are more environmentally friendly, we already have many procedures in place but we know we can all do more, we have always used First Mile for recycling and general waste, our mission statement which we love is Zero To Landfill.
Going green at the dental practice: Balham’s leading dental practice is going green! The practice has implemented a number of new eco-friendly initiatives this year, such as recycling toothbrushes, electric toothbrushes, Tepe, inter-dental brushes and floss by partnering with a recycling initiative TeraCycle and Philips, using energy efficient dental products, and utilizing a structured waste disposal and recycling system with First Mile in the practice.
We always promote sustainable environmentally friendly products for patients, for example bamboo toothbrushes instead of plastic ones and 99% Zero Waste Silk Dental Floss and Dental Hygiene Products.
The practice has also eliminated the use of toxic sterilizers by selecting instruments that can be sterilized with heat in an autoclave, and is using digital X-ray systems to eliminate chemical waste. Furthermore, we are using eco-friendly disinfectants and multi-purpose cleaners to achieve high air quality standards also using a Negative air pressure ventilation system to active pull air from the surgery similar to the system used in hospital operating theatres.
The team at Balham Dental Studio is passionate about maintaining an eco-friendly dental office and minimizing our impact and the burden we place on the environment. We are committed to going green and providing care that is eco-friendly and which will promote our patients’ oral and overall health as well as a healthier environment.
