Here are other ways we are environmentally conscious and we continue to look for ways to help our environment:
- In our office we recycle. We are very good at it too.
- We are proud to offer digital x-rays reducing radiation to our patient, our team and our environment by 90% compared to standard film.
- Eliminating conventional x-rays also eliminates the need for fixer and developer solutions
- We use Energy Star rated appliances and a thermostat that only conditions the office during office hours
- Patients love our DemandForce email/text message confirmation system that saves paper, energy and time
- We installed an Amalgam Separator that when silver fillings are removed from patients mouths, they are captured and separated by a receptacle and hauled out of the office in a special container preventing contamination of Contra Costa sewer waters
- We continue to find ways to limit single use items in favor of multiuse or reusable
- Electronic claims are submitted to avoid use of paper claims
If you have any suggestions we would love to work with you
