Environmental

Commitments

  • Where possible, we use recycled products and reuse equipment that we sterilise on-site.

 

  • We have adopted a secure online booking and patient/treatment management system in order to reduce printing.

 

  • We have reduced our energy consumption through a strict power-down policy and restricted use of air conditioning. The energy we do consume comes from sustainable sources through green energy supply.

 

  • We have invested in an Oral Care and Packaging Zero Waste Box, meaning patients can bring in old toothpaste tubes and caps, toothbrushes, interdental brushes, floss containers and dental aligners to be recycled by terracycle.com

 

As well as these initial steps, we are rolling out a series of measures to improve our care for the environment across the practice.
