Going Green - Our Earth Friendly Office

The truth is that every single thing we do every day has an impact on the planet -- good or bad. We are aware of this, and do our best to make the office friendly to the earth. Usually what's good for the earth is also good for our patients. Our green initiatives include:

  • Digital X-rays
  • Office Recycling
  • Paperless Recordkeeping

Digital X-Rays
We've been taking Digital X-rays for over 10 years. Compared to digital radiography:

  • Eliminates the need to buy and dispose of film, fixer, and developing chemicals
  • Saves the gallons of water used to develop traditional X-rays
  • Reduces energy consumption significantly

Not only are Digital x-rays more eco-friendly than traditional X-rays, they are also better for patients because they:

  • Reduce radiation exposure (both duration and intensity)
  • Shorten time until the X-rays are ready to view
  • Produce a higher quality picture, resulting in better diagnosis
