Tara Kaur, DDS, Leads The Way In Greening Dentistry
By: Tara Kaur, DDS
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!
