At Palmer Smile Design, we not only believe in conservative dentistry, but conservative practices!
Here are just a few of the things we do to reduce our carbon footprint and protect the environment:
Our own in-house water filtration system for all water consumption. This reduces the waste of unnecessary bottles of distilled water and keeps our water lines cleaner.
LED dental lights, curing lights and overhead lights to reduce electric consumption. We also use sensors throughout the office to reduce overhead utility waste.
AIRSTAR AIRTEC COMPRESSOR
At the heart of our practice, we use a state of the art advanced compressor system that powers our dental equipment which keeps the energy consumption low and reduces wasted emissions.
MOJAVE DRY VAC SYSTEM
Our dry-vac system (suction) keeps water usage at minimum and reduces waste. This state of the art technology greatly reduces water consumption and wasteful filters.
We use an interoffice dental software, called Dentrix to schedule and maintain patient chart. This also greatly reduces our paper usage and increases our inter office efficiency.
We utilize all digital sensors and technology to capture instant images to help diagnose our patients quickly. This not only reduces wasted packaging for film, it also reduces radiation exposure greatly.
BPA FREE and Bio-Compatibility Material Testing
We understand patients are concerned about the ingredients in their dental materials. We use BPA free materials and also offer bio-compatibility testing for your personalized list of compatible dental products.
Safe Mercury removal Techniques
Your health as well as our health is very important. We utilize safe amalgam removal techniques including the use of masks, nasal cannulas, water irrigation, and high volume suction.
