In honor of this year's Earth Day, Dr. Nushin Shir, founder of The Artistic Center for Dentistry and has partnered with Heal the Bay, an organization that promotes the importance of improving and protecting Southern California's coastal waters, in a joint effort to promote proper dental care and personal health as part of environmental awareness.

Dr. Shir, recently included in the 2010 Guide to America's Top Dentists explains: "We are committed to improving the local environment in our community to create a cleaner, safer place to live and work. We understand the importance of making environmentally responsible decisions for a sustainable future, and that begins with taking responsibility for our personal health, which includes proper dental care."

The Artistic Center for Dentistry campaign with Heal the Bay aims to raise environmental consciousness, in tandem with health awareness throughout Santa Monica by offering a month-long dental service special from April 1st - 30th. One hundred and twenty new patients will receive free comprehensive dental exams that will include basic teeth cleaning services and limited check up x-rays. Additional treatments will be offered at 25% off their published rate. In exchange for free dental treatment, the practice is asking that all patients donate $10 to support this outreach campaign with Heal the Bay in recognition of Earth Day this April 22nd.

"Support from third parties, such as Artistic Center for Dentistry, is key to promoting greater awareness, broadening our member base, and generating funds to support our research, education, community action and advocacy," said Natalie Burdick, Heal the Bay's constituent development manager. "We are excited to be able partner with Dr. Shir on a health program that offers free dental exams to members of our local community."

The Artistic Center for Dentistry itself subscribes to a community based "Green" philosophy and is doing its part to minimize its carbon footprint. The Center is a chartless and therefore paperless office, an effort taken to help save trees and forests. In addition, the office reduces its waste by eliminating the use of plastic products. The Center's choice to use digital x-rays eliminates the hazardous chemicals that are used in their development from contaminating the waterways and also eliminates unnecessary radiation to its patients. The heavy equipment used is both dry and oil-less, and therefore does not wastefully deplete water supplies. Oil-less machinery also reduces the waste production of non-biodegradable materials that contaminate our oceans.
