At Mydental we are working hard to reduce our impact on the environment.
We have moved away from older impression taking techniques where possible using digital scanning which reduces the use of plastic materials and the need to courier packages.
Where available we use biodegradable cleaning products for the surgery, rest assured they are all TGA approved and meet infection control standards
We provide biodegradable patient goodie bags with bamboo toothbrushes that are 96% biodegradable and bamboo interdental cleaners.
In partnership with Terracycle we also recycle used oral care products including toothbrushes and packaging. Everyone is encouraged to drop in their old toothbrushes, floss containers, toothpaste tubes and packaging. We then send them to Terracycle who process and recycle it. It has an added bonus for every box we send, Terracycle send a cheque to our chosen charity – the Animal Welfare League.
We will continue to make changes and make Mydental a greener practice
