How are we “green”?

– Monday, October 15, 2012 –

At Northern Colorado Orthodontics, we strive to provide exceptional orthodontic care while staying eco-friendly.

Here are some ways we go green!

  • Office design by LEED-Accredited architect
  • Energy efficient lighting including motion sensor lighting throughout office to minimize energy use
  • Energy Star rated appliances
  • Waterless vacuum pump – saves up to 26,000 gallons of water per year versus a traditional pump
  • Reusing rechargeable batteries
  • Many paperless aspects including digital radiographs, digital images, and computer scheduling, charting, and treatment planning
  • Recycling whenever possible
  • We use local companies whenever possible – many of the things in the office were made right here in Colorado, including the dental operator chairs and cabinets
  • Refurbished reception area seating
  • We encourage you to bring your own toothbrush – we have disposable toothbrushes available but this cuts down on waste
