The Eco Dentistry Association's Green Lounge was the scene of a lot of activity on the exhibit floor.The purpose of the Green Lounge is to educate dental professionals about how they can tap into the rapidly growing green movement in dentistry.
“We want dental professionals to see that going green is not about doing everything at once, but about knowing your options and making the right choices for your practice.," said Ms. Beck. "There are many shades of green. High-tech dentists often find they’re greener than they think they are.”
See how you can join The GreenDOCTM Dental Office Certification Program has everything dental offices need to get started on greening, and provides the opportunity to reach dentistry's highest standards of eco-friendly practice through a rigorous but attainable certification program.
The CAO Group is a company you have probably never heard of but will soon. They have a lot of interesting products. I got to try their new Sheer White Bleaching Film. This film sticks to your teeth for 1 hour. No sliding strips like other similar products. Look for future products delivered in a similar method for dispensing desensitizing agents and chlorhexidine. I tried the bleaching film and it was simple to remove after 1 hour.

The scientific basis for the oral health and cosmetic benefits provided by these three strains of bacteria has been documented in numerous peer-reviewed publications over the last 30 years.
