At Lissauer Eriks Dental, we understand the importance of limiting your carbon footprint. Green products and technologies are emerging in the dental field, and we strive to stay ahead of the curve. Below are a few changes we have made in recent years to reduce waste, increase energy efficiency and become greener:
We recently switched from Traditional X-rays to Digital X-rays. The switch not only benefits our patients by requiring less radiation but also benefits the environment. Traditional X-rays cause a considerable amount of waste, including lead foils that are thrown away after each x-ray. Also, environmentally unfriendly chemical solutions, such as fixer and developer, are used to develop Traditional X-rays. On the other hand, Digital X-rays do not require these chemicals and reduce waste.
Energy efficient light bulbs
We have installed energy efficient light bulbs in all sockets that allow their use.
Energy Star appliances
We have installed energy efficient appliances where possible to reduce energy consumption.
We use our computer software for scheduling rather than a traditional paper system.
We are always looking to make our dental office in Boynton Beach more energy efficient, and we welcome new ideas, products and suggestions.
