Notes from the Green Dentistry Conference

added on: May 17, 2013

Earlier this month, Dr. Hennington and his wife, Xenia, had a wonderful opportunity to attend the very first Green Dentistry Conference at the Sundance Resort in Utah from May 2nd – 5th! The conference was organized and sponsored by the Eco-Dentistry Association, whose goal is to implement more environmentally conscious practices into the dental field. What is so impressive and encouraging about the EDA is the emphasis on providing technologies, techniques, and practices that are at the forefront of the industry all while minimizing the impact on the planet. Dr. Hennington and the entire team at Trade Winds Dental place complete focus on the health of the patients of our community as well as the planet that we all inhabit – this makes the partnership our practice has with the EDA such a powerful and special one!

You may recall one of our recent blog posts that mentioned Dr. Hennington’s yoga classes he would be holding at the conference – Dr. Hennington is proud to say that the classes, perfectly named “Yoga Flow for the Dental Pro,” were an incredible experience for himself and his colleagues! The classes were held at the start of each day, and set a perfect course for spending the rest of the day improving upon the commitment our practice has to our patients and our planet.

In further news regarding our Green Dentistry efforts, Trade Winds Dental has begun the challenging and rigorous process of earning the EDA’s GreenDoc Dental Certification. From the EDA about this certification, “EDA Certification is a comprehensive program for dental offices and independent hygiene practices that rewards eco-friendly initiatives in the areas of dental processes & procedures, office administration & marketing, and office design, furnishings & construction.”

Dr. Hennington, Xenia, and the entire team at Trade Winds Dental take pride in our green dentistry efforts because we all understand that caring for our planet is very important part of caring for our patients in the best possible way!
