Sola Green Practices

SoLa Dental of Austin is committed to creating a healthy environment for both its patients and employees. The practice was designed following Green Health Care Guidelines for dental practices and the certification requirements of the Eco-Dentistry Association.  We participate in their Save 90 A Day Campaign.

Commitment to environmental responsibility has required us to re-think our business model from project planning through daily office administration. Please see how we are striving to be a model for a new kind of dental practice by making responsible choices in the following areas:

  • Site selection
  • Interior design
  • Construction waste recycling
  • Material selection, including the use of recycled and recyclable building materials
  • Formaldehyde-free wood products
  • Use of low and no VOC paints and adhesives
  • Energy and water efficiency
  • Waste and noise reduction
  • Patient safety
  • Disinfection and sterilization
  • Practice administration, marketing, and communication
