Minnesota Orthodontist Goes Green!

Minnesota Orthodontist Strives to be Environmentally Responsible

Zapfel Orthodontics is committed to achieving fabulous results through high quality service and clinical excellence. Did you know that we also strive to be environmentally responsible as well?

Over the years, Dr. Zapfel has planted new trees around the office to help keep the air clean and to help keep the office cool in the summer. Inside the office, we have made some changes as well. We like to conserve energy, so we are now using high efficiency light bulbs throughout the office. We have also switched to digital x-rays, which eliminates the use of hazardous materials and waste that is associated with developing traditional film. All of our imaging is digital, as is much of our communication with patients. Also, patients receive e-mail messages rather than traditional postcards or letters for recall reminders which cuts down on paper waste.

What ways do you go green? We’d love to hear what things you do to have an environmentally responsible lifestyle!
