Bethlehem Town Family Dental

How is your office environmentally friendly?

  • Image of couple riding their bikes in the forestWe do not use any amalgam (silver) fillings in the office so we do not introduce more mercury into the environment.  
  • Any old amalgam (silver) filling, placed by other dentists, that's removed from patient's teeth are captured by a mercury trap so we do not leak any mercury into the environment. 
  • We use a dry pump system to supply our air and suction, this means we significantly reduce the amount of water we utilize and conserve energy.
  • Our office has digital x-rays.  We do not use any conventional x-rays so we avoid the use of harsh chemicals like developer and fixer for films.  
  • Modern technology and equipment ensure less energy consumption.  (The LED light bulbs help too!)
