1st Canadian Dental Office to Achieve Eco-Dentistry Dental Office Certification Status
Last Friday I was notified by telephone that after submission of a very detailed and rigorous application, I had achieved one of dentistry’s highest standards of eco-friendly practice!
Having been a member of the Eco-Dentistry Association since opening my practice two years ago, I am committed to a dental profession that values both outstanding client care and outstanding planetary care. I recognize that as a dental professional, we make decisions every day which impact the public’s health and the health of our Earth.

The GreenDOCTM Program covers eight categories of eco-friendly practice, providing a comprehensive, eco-friendly model for the dental office that makes it easy to choose the ones that are right for your practice – and to communicate your high standards to your clients! Following is a list of the eight categories:
I am committed in all that I do as I move forward in life and in business, to make decisions that reflect my respect for all living things.
