Green Dentistry

Green DentistryIf you are looking for a dental practice that offers state-of-the-art dental care and green dentistry, you can turn to the caring professionals at Green Dental of Alexandria.  We are a family dental practice that serves the residents of Northern Virginia with top quality, environmentally conscious general dentistry, restorative, cosmetic, implants and sedation dentistry.

At Green Dental of Alexandria, our first priorities are patient safety, patient care and protecting the environment.  Using the best and safest materials the industry has to offer, the most advanced dental technology and eco-friendly systems, we deliver top quality, green dental care to professionals and families throughout Alexandria and the surrounding areas.

Eco Friendly Dentist

Dr. Hye Y. Park of Green Dental of Alexandria is an eco friendly dentist you can trust to provide comprehensive oral care for your entire family.  Our office is committed to your safety and to preserving resources and protecting the environment.  As a part of this commitment, we have invested in a number of eco friendly systems including a dry vacuum system, digital x-rays, a dental laser, green dental imaging, an air and water purification system and a green infection control system.  For your safety, we do not offer any dental restorations containing mercury and we use amalgam separators and chair-side filters to facilitate the safe removal of old amalgam fillings.

Eco – Friendly Practice

Our team is dedicated to maintaining an environmentally-friendly practice with rigorous infection control as follows:

  • DIGITAL DENTISTRY ELIMINATES CHEMICAL WASTE: Green Dental uses only digital x-rays which greatly reduce radiation exposure for patients and eliminate the need for chemical x-ray developers which harm the environment.
  • AMALGAM SEPARATORS PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT: An amalgam separator is a device which captures toxic particles after removal of an amalgam filling to prevent those particles from entering the community sewage system.
  • 6-STAGE SURGICALLY CLEAN AIR FILTRATION PROCESS: We have an advanced air filtration system which, through a six-stage process, filters out viruses, bacteria, fungi and other harmful particles as small as 1/100th of a micron in diameter.
  • BIOCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS FOR OPTIMUM HEALTH: Our use of biocompatible materials reduces the risk of an inflammatory reaction in patients.
  • PURIFIED WATER SYSTEM: Our sophisticated water purification system removes harmful components from the water used in your dental work.
  • ADDITIONAL STEPS TO PROTECT YOU AND THE ENVIRONMENT: We use an oilless compressor which won’t release hazardous pollutants into the air like oil compressors do. We also use eco-friendly disinfectants which don’t leave toxic build-up on surfaces or irritate the skin, eyes or respiratory system. And our dry-air dental vacuum saves nearly 5,500 gallons of water per day.

Our practice is currently accepting new patients and we would be honored to serve your family with state-of-the-art, green dental healthcare. We offer a variety of promotions for new patients including specials on dental X-rays, cleanings and exams, free whitening for life and more. Please refer to our promotions page or call our office to get more information about our new patient specials.

For your convenience, our family dental practice accepts many dental insurance plans as well as cash, checks and credit card payments.  We also offer flexible financing and in-house payment plans.  Our friendly and knowledgeable professionals are available to work with you to help you find a financing plan that meets your specific needs.  To accommodate our busy parents and working professionals, we offer extended hours as well as Saturday appointments.  Please contact our Alexandria Green Dentistry Specialists today to schedule your appointment.  We look forward to helping you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile.

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

Top shelf dental care. Convenient location via METRO/King Street Station. Patient's dental chair features back massage capability along with TV viewing (CNN). Dr. Hye Park is very smooth. Dental experience beyond compare. I actually enjoy going to the dentist now.

Once again, even the cleaning was uneventful. Love being able to look outside while I'm in the chair. Dr. Park has the most gentle & tiny hands ! Love this place and the staff.
