Here are 7 tips to make your dental practice more green:

1. Embrace the Digital Realm:

  • Utilise electronic health records (EHRs) to minimise paper usage.
  • Encourage patients to opt for paperless billing and appointment scheduling via online platforms.


2. Waste Reduction & Responsible Disposal:

  • Implement a recycling program for paper, plastic, metal, and glass, with clearly labeled bins.
  • Opt for reusable alternatives where possible: cloth patient bibs, metal impression trays, and autoclavable instruments.
  • Consider bulk-buying necessary supplies to reduce individual packaging.
  • Ensure proper segregation and responsible disposal of clinical waste.


3. Energy Efficiency is Key:

  • Invest in energy-saving LED lighting and energy-efficient appliances.
  • Turn off lights and electronics when not in use, and unplug idle chargers.
  • Regularly maintain HVAC systems for optimal performance.


4. Sustainable Procurement: 

  • Partner with suppliers who prioritise eco-friendly practices and sustainable materials.
  • Consider offering biodegradable alternatives like bamboo toothbrushes in your patient shop.


5. Reduce and Rethink Consumables:

  • Minimise the use of disposable items like plastic cups and unnecessary printed materials.
  • Evaluate the necessity of multiple gloving and explore alternatives.


6. Water Conservation Matters: 

  • Fix leaky faucets and toilets promptly.
  • Install low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators.


7. Educate and Engage:

  • Train staff on proper waste segregation and sustainable practices.
  • Educate patients about your green initiatives and encourage eco-friendly oral care choices.

By implementing these tips, you can significantly reduce your dental practice’s environmental impact and contribute to a healthier planet, all while promoting a positive image for your business.
