Sorriso Design Dental Clinic was mostly built with sustainable sources such as eco-friendly paint and recycled material.
Instead of using the harmful amalgam filling, we have opted for safer substitutes such as composite resin filling. We have also installed filters that provide clean water free from toxins, avoiding wastewater pollution into our oceans.
Not to mention that the clinic is mainly paperless! Our dental software allows us to manage our business electronically. Receipts, consent forms and treatment plans are emailed to patients, which reduces paper wastage and pollution.
Most importantly, we collect plastic toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes and caps, toothbrush packaging, electric and battery toothbrush heads, and toothpaste cartons to send to the correct recycling centre. This will help to reduce carbon and plastic footprints that negatively affect the environment.
As a green alternative, we are promoting Parla toothpaste tabs. They provide a sustainable range of plastic-free oral products to reduce plastic pollution in the UK. What’s more, you can use their glass packaging to refill toothpaste tabs, avoiding unnecessary consumption.
We hope to inspire change and encourage our patients to think about the impact of plastic wastage on the environment!
