 Tips for Going Green in the Dental Office

"Going green" is one of the hottest trends in the world today... and it is also one of the most misunderstood.  What is the definition of "green"?  What is "organic" and why does it make a difference?  Do things ever really go away when you throw them away?  "Going green" doesn't mean giving up electricity or reverting back to the Stone Age.  It does, however, mean a new way of thinking and awareness in the dental office.  In this lecture, learn how you can help to save the environment by taking small steps in each room of the dental office.  You can make a difference in the environment and in the practice's bottom line with just a few changes. 

At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Easily spot methods of conserving energy in the dental office
  • Understand the value of "going green" in terms of saving the environment and saving dollars
  • Understand how other dental offices have "gone green" and what it has meant to their practices
