Sustainability & Air Quality
More and more people in dental care and other sectors want to contribute to a good environment. There is a lot left to improve to make buildings, equipment and practices more sustainable. That is quite a challenge in a dental practice. Due to our hygiene protocols, we are obliged to work with many disposable materials. Think of gloves, cups, extractors, etc. However, we are consciously working on this. We try to separate as much plastic as possible and purchase our materials sustainably. We have our dental technicians in-house, which eliminates a major transportation factor. By working with scanners, we do not have to purchase materials that end up in the waste. This way we try to contribute to a healthier environment.
Fresh air is important for our general health. That is why it is important in buildings to have a good ventilation system. This enhances better air quality and reduces particulate matter. It helps to reduce viruses, bacteria or other particles that may be hazardous to our system. This is of utter importance in a dental practice. That is why we incorporated an extensive ventilation system that refreshes the air in every room within the hour. Special filters catch pollen, (micro)dust and germs to create a healthy environment for staff and patient.
