Ecology In Our Dental Practice
When the well is dry, we know the worth of water.
The environmental impact we have as a society is becoming a major social issue today and many people are trying to take an active role in improving this situation. Roots on Whyte Dental hopes to lead the dental industry in reducing their impact on the environment by incorporating different aspects of ecological sustainability into the practice.
Firstly, the construction of the new Roots on Whyte clinic was done using environmentally friendly materials whenever possible.
- Environmentally aware paints and finishes
- Renewable pine resin Marmoleum flooring
- Efficient dry vacuum dental suction system
- Recycled content ceiling tiles that also filter 90% of the aldahydes from the air
- Renewable wool carpeting
- Recycled content counter tops
Secondly, the dental materials and processes we use in the clinic reflect our ecological approach to dentistry.
- Paperless practice through computer charting and email/text patient communications
- Recycled content dental uniforms
- Eco-friendly cleaning supplies
- Suction tips from recycled materials
- Digital x-rays with no need for toxic developing solutions
- Non-chemical steam sterilization
- Amalgam separator to keep removed mercury out of the water supply
The care I received was courteous and very professional. The dentist was extremely gentle. She replaced a filling which I had lost and all I can say is “It’s BEAUTIFUL!”. The experience was painless and actually pleasant. My concerns about dental amalgams and root canals were taken into consideration and I felt like I was genuinely listened to. I highly recommend this dental office! 🙂03/12/2016
Very positive experience. The reception was friendly and helpful. I am a little apprehensive, as are most I think when visiting the dentist, but this team was kind, gentle, but also very informative. Dr. Aujla has a very peaceful demeanour, I would definitely recommend this team for a stress free dental experience.18/11/2016
The lovely woman who did my cleaning was warm and welcoming, and I felt so at ease with her that it was almost as good as getting a massage! It was the most relaxed I’ve ever been at the dentist. Also, I loved how she was caring and didn’t make fake “small talk” with me. A total delight! The dentist was also warm, gentle, sweet, and she seemed so relaxed. It was kind of like being in the hands of angels. Not exaggerating! Thank you, Lara24/09/2016
Thank you for the great first impression! As someone who has worked in the service industry for more than 30 years I can tell you are doing a great job! I was greeted by 2 lovely assistants at the front desk one of which actually remembered my email address when I mentioned who I was – that’s a clear sign of paying attention to details and connecting to the clients who are coming in. The rest of my visit was as welcoming and also incredibly informative. I learned more about my teeth and loved the digital imaging that really showed me what Dr. Ruby was explaining. I’ve already recommended the office to my 2 daughters and their families and I will continue to spread the word. Thank you again for the great experience I look forward to my next visit!22/09/2016
