In designing our dental office we have gone to great lengths to make our practice as eco-friendly as possible. We have used technology to minimize our impact where possible including:
- Digital records to significantly reduce our paper consumption.
- Digital radiography to eliminate the use of film and chemicals used in developing.
- Waterless on demand dental vacuums reducing our water and power use.
- Amalgam separators in our vacuum system to eliminate heavy metals (like mercury) being introduced into our water system. (Currently legal in the US and WY.)
We do not have recycling capability at our office complex and therefor transport our recyclable materials to deposit locations around the city.
We are committed to implementing eco-friendly practices at Alpine Dental and encourage you to do the same.
