Webinar - Sustainability in the Dental Practice

Webinar - Sustainability in the Dental Practice
Join us for a 1 hour online webinar asking is sustainability important and possible for dental practices?


This webinar has been rescheduled to the 28th of October at a new earlier time. Please check the times as daylight savings will also be in effect.  

Sustainability is something that is talked about a lot. What does it really mean and how does it affect our practising lives? We can all agree that big companies should be taking steps to becoming sustainable. How can they assist the individual practitioner and the community with more sustainable practices? What changes can be made to practice that will not compromise safety or the bottom line? This presentation looks at these important questions and provides some helpful insights into the topic.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Understand what sustainability means
  • Explore zero waste and the circular economy
  • Consider companies approaches to sustainability and how these could assist dental practices
  • Apply sustainability practices to the dental practice environment
