Vista Dental Care Is Green


South San Francisco dental office Vista Dental Care is green!

We at Vista Dental Care are passionate about keeping our planet happy. And we know that "being green" is about much more than just recycling, which is one of the many reasons that we are striving to make our office an eco-friendly one. Below are a few of the steps that we have taken to become more environmentally conscious.

We are Paperless: From computerized charts to digital insurance claims to corresponding with patients via email whenever possible, we strive to utilize technology in order to save paper. And when we do use paper, it is recyclable!

We Don't Use Harsh Detergents or Soaps: We favor earth-friendly solutions instead!

We Use The CEREC® System: With our in-office state-of-the-art CEREC® System, patients can experience same-day crowns, which means that there are no toxic materials or plastic traps to dispose of, no messy impressions to throw away and less unnecessary travel for patients.

We Use Digital Radiography: This technology allows us to take high-quality x-rays with no toxic or harmful solutions and with up to 90% less radiation than film x-rays.

We Use Metallic Cassettes for Sterilization: Instead of paper wraps, we opt for metallic cassettes.

We Offer Laser Technology: Less surgery, less materials and less waste overall.

We Make Earth-Friendly Choices: We use eco-friendly paints, energy-efficient lighting, choose reusable materials and turn off all technology when it is not in use.

As a result of digital x-rays, we no longer need to use toxic chemicals and developers. Not only is the reduction in chemicals better for the environment, digital x-rays requires 75-90% less radiation exposure for our patients and are also safer for our employees. Now that’s something to smile about!
