Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) July 03, 2014
Beacon Cove Dental are pleased to announce their full support to sustainability as they become a green dental clinic powered by 100% renewable energy.
The Clinic moves toward carbon neutral dentistry as patients' treatments power usage is 100% carbon neutral. Dr Fern White, Principal Dentist at Beacon Cove, explains “we believe our dental industry could be performing a lot better in the area of reducing emissions and waste. We have invested in GreenPower to ensure that we are reducing the effects that coal mining and burning has on our planet.”
Beacon Cove Dental has been certified as doing all they can to ensure that the water they use and drain back into the water system is filtered and any heavy chemicals removed, such as mercury after amalgam fillings have been removed. This is mainly achieved through the installation of equipment that carefully removes metals through a centrifugal technique and the installation of permanent water filters to ensure the water they use in sterilisation and machine maintenance is 100% clear.
The Clinic leads the way in dentistry and ensures reducing the amount of waste produced by using biodegradable products such as plastic bags, cling film wraps, hygiene covers, tool covers etc. As Dr. White adds “Our lighting is low wattage LED, we use biodegradable products where possible and all mercury is filtered from the water system. We strive to be the No. 1 dentists in Port Melbourne.”
The company disposal methods are ultra safe ensuring that their treatments do not contaminate the environment. For this reason they installed new mercury filters into their suction systems removing 99% of the amalgam/mercury filling materials before other waste fluids exit into the drain system.
The established partnership of CitySwitch with RMIT University Melbourne delivers valuable advice for Signatories, including Beacon Cove Dental, helping them identify potential improvements to their resource consumption.
The clinic is now 100% Green Powered and Earth friendly. For further information on how Beacon Cove Dental promotes sustainability and has become a green dental clinic in South Melbourne Area visit the company's website: http://www.beaconcovedental.com.au/.
