By: Tara Kaur, DDS
July 24, 2014 - PRLog -- Edina, MN – Tara Kaur, DDS, PLLC aims to maintain a holistic relationship between ecology and economy by taking a sustainable approach to dentistry. She incorporates ecologically sustainable materials and procedures that reduce the impact of dentistry on the environment, as well as protecting her patients from toxic materials. With this mission in mind, Tara Kaur, DDS joined the Green Business Bureau, which is a national membership organization that uses an online assessment to certify green businesses.

As a benefit to the planet and patients, Tara Kaur, DDS, does not place dental amalgam fillings and utilizes a mercury amalgam separator, which reduces toxic mercury contribution to the local wastewater treatment facilities and decreases the amount of neurotoxin exposure to patients. They have digital X-rays, which use up to 90% less radiation than conventional X-ray films and minimize patient radiation exposure. Additionally, they incorporated an electronic patient database to reduce paper and use a dry dental vacuum system, which reduces water consumption by 57,000 gallons per year. The office’s diverse sustainability initiatives also include comprehensive recycling, using eco-friendly materials, avoiding disposable supplies and installing Energy Star and resource saving appliances and fixtures. They even provide patients with Preserve toothbrushes made from recycled yogurt cups and offer a recycling program for used toothbrushes! Tara Kaur, DDS and the Green Business Bureau will work together to continue championing sustainability in both the dentistry industry and for all small businesses.
