Consumers Demand A Different Type of Dental Healthcare

Nowadays, you hear the term “green” used all the time.  This term can refer to a lot of different things ranging from organic foods to energy conservation initiatives.  So what exactly is “green dentistry“?  According to the Eco Dentistry Association (EDA), “Green dentistry is a high-tech approach that reduces the environmental impact of dental practices and encompasses a service model for dentistry that supports and maintains wellness.”

Green dentistry is focused around four major components including the following:

  • reducing waste and pollution
  • conserving the earth’s natural resources by saving water, energy and money
  • using high-tech innovations that benefit both patients and the planet
  • supporting a wellness lifestyle with a focus on prevention

Today’s consumers are more sophisticated than in the past and are looking for more environmentally conscious goods and services.  And, more and more patients are looking for a different type of dentistry: one that is focused on wellness and prevention and is environmentally conscious.  Dentistry they can feel good about all around.

Green Dental of Alexandria is meeting that need by offering state-of-the-art, eco-conscious dental healthcare to the residents of Northern Virginia.  To improve patient care while at the same time protecting the planet, Green Dental of Alexandria has invested in a number of environmentally friendly, high-tech systems including the following:

  • 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.

In addition, Green Dental of Alexandria does not offer any type of dental restorations containing Mercury.  Their practice utilizes both amalgam separators and chair side filters to facilitate the safe removal of old amalgam fillings.
You do not have to settle for traditional dental care and you do not have to sacrifice quality and service to get eco-conscious dental healthcare.  Now, practices all over the United States like Green Dental of Alexandria in Virginia are offering state-of-the-art dental care that takes into consideration both the long-term dental health of patients and the health and future of the planet.

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.
