Our Green Practices

Dr. Cuprill and his wife Anja follow a sustainable and green lifestyle at home, so it only makes sense that this carries over to his office,
Orlando Holistic Dental Studio.

From planning to construction to day-to-day operations

Orlando Holistic Dental Studio has walked the path of sustainability since 2011. Built with the greenest materials – cork flooring, quartz counters, eco-insulation – the office also utilizes water- and energy-saving fixtures, paperless office practices, and a comprehensive recycling program.

When it comes to mercury disposal, we take the highest safety precautions, including an oil-less and waterless compressor and suction unit that includes a mercury amalgam separator. This greatly reduces water use and prevents oil or mercury pollution in wastewater.

For restorative dentistry, we increasingly make use of our digital impression and crown-milling machine, which not only eliminates the need for impression trays and materials; it also eliminates the transport of cases to and from the lab.

While some dental tools must be disposable, all efforts are made to use biodegradable and environmentally-safe materials. Future plans include solar panels and eco-friendly cloth sterilization techniques.

Orlando Holistic Dental Studio is a Gold-Certified member of the Eco Dentistry Association – the first central Florida office to achieve such certification.

We hope these efforts will in some way inspire others to take care of the Earth. We only have one planet, and only one life to effect change to improve it. Go green!
