Pleasant Hill Family Dentistry
prides itself on being environmentally friendly and is federally compliant with the disposal of amalgam (mercury and other metals used for tooth fillings). We have invested in an amalgam separator system that allows us to safely dispose the mercury, keeping it out of local water treatment facilities. Prior to EPA making this a requirement, our office was proactive and has been disposing of mercury properly for many years.
We are an amalgam free practice and use composite resin for our fillings. Composite advantages:
We also do Digital X-rays, which produce less radiation and uses NO fixer/developer, which is dangerous waste material from typical X-ray processing.
Our practice constantly tries to improve our sustainability and works towards keeping our environment green. We look forward seeing you at your next visit.
