EDA brings first “Green Lounge” to the ADA

9 10 2010

At this year’s ADA, attendees had the chance to learn about green dentistry first hand. The Eco-Dentistry Association’s green lounge offers a place for attendees to relax and learn about green dentistry and what it can do for their practice. The lounge not only offers educational opportunities about how dental professionals can become part of the growing green dentistry movement, it also showcases many of the green dental products and materials available to help them get started.

During a press conference in the Green Lounge Saturday morning, Ina and Dr. Fred Pockrass, Co-Founders of the Eco-Dentistry Assocation, talked about the greater mission of the EDA and how their dental office became the first green practice in the country. Director Susan Beck shared informatmion about the GreenDOC program and the importance of getting involved.

Sponsors for the Green Lounge include Hu-Friedy, Discus Dental and DentalEZ.

Congratulations to EDA for bringing Green Dentistry to the ADA Exhibit floor. It’s easy to incorporate eco friendly practices into a dental office. Education is the first step!

I would be excited to learn more about the eco-friendly furniture you used in your booth.
