Our Office Features:

  • We are a mercury-free office.
  • All of our composite restorations are BPA-free.
  • Special filtration systems to allow environmentally sound disposal of old mercury fillings, to prevent pollution to our water systems.
  • We use digital imaging (no traditional x-rays) which means approximately 90% less radiation to our patients and no toxic X-ray development chemicals.
  • Use of steam-based, surgical-grade instrument sterilization, which does not contain any harmful chemicals and reduces water use.
  • We strive to be a paper-free office. We use a paperless charting system and e-file all dental claim forms to reduce paper use. 
  • When needed, we use 30% post consumer recycled paper, approved for certified sourcing by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. Every case of paper we buy, the company donates back to charity.   
  • We send patient appointment reminders and other communications electronically.
  • Use of recycled and recyclable  patient bags.
  • Only use recharchable batteries.
  • Careful selection of clinical products that share our sustainable/green approach. For example: GreenGauze, an organic cotton gauze that biodegrades quicker than traditional gauze. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds support ChariTree, a charity that educates children about the environment and supports tree planting projects.
  • Member of the Eco Dentistry Association.
  • Certified Sacramento Area Sustainable Business. 
  • And we recycle! :) Even our sharps waste is recycled.
