Dentistry’s Green Future

with Ina Pockrass

TDS Logo 600X600Conservation has become a mindset and lifestyle choice for millions of people. People take pride in recycling and making what we like to call ‘green’ lifestyle choices. This concept applies to the dental profession and on this episode we were very fortunate to have Ina Pockrass as a special guest on the Thriving Dentist Show. Ina is the visionary leader of the green dentistry movement. She co-created the first green dental office way back in 2003 and later co-founded the Eco-Dentistry Association in 2008. The mission of the Eco-Dentistry Association is to promote green dentistry and also provides a forum for dentists to become certified as a greenDOC.
