ADENTICS
goes green

Sustainability and environmental protection are important to us.

  • Home

With ADENTICS GREEN we would like to achieve a shift in the approach to orthodontic practice.
We would like to see our sector reduce its impact on the environment.

ADENTICS goes green

Since we cannot make any compromises on the hygiene conditions during treatment – and do not wish to – we are dependent on the use of synthetic materials (rubber gloves, face masks, plastic appliances, etc.). To compensate for this unfortunately unavoidable burden on the environment, ADENTICS is now donating a tree for every new orthodontic treatment and for every 10 kilos of plastic waste we have to produce. As well as for every new employee hired.

We support the tree-planting projects of Plant-for-the-Planet.

And because we were so impressed by Felix Finkbeiner’s story, we support his Plant-For-The-Planet project: wikipedia.org/wiki/Plant-for-the-Planet

At the start of the project we planted 1000 trees and will now plant more trees every two weeks.

Our Goal

ADENTICS’ aspires to always work in an environmentally conscious, sustainable way, and to conserve resources without making any compromises on hygiene and quality.

Whenever you see this logo on our packaging and print documents, we were able to produce the item in an environmentally sustainable way.

And this is what we are doing already:

Paperless Practice

Paperless Practice

We have reduced our paper consumption by 90 % and are nearly paper-free in almost every area. Unfortunately, we are still obligated to print hard copies of certain official forms and treatment contracts.

Intraoral Scanners

Intraoral Scanners

Intraoral scanners at all of our locations enable us to make digital impressions. Not only are these more hygienic and precise, they also save resources on moulding materials and disinfecting solution. The transport of the jaw models to the laboratory takes place digitally.

3D Printing: Compostable

3D Printing: Compostable

Our 3D printers work only with compostable filament. Our jaw models can be thrown on the compost heap!

Plant-For-The-Planet

Plant-For-The-Planet

We support the Plant-for-the-Planet project and plant one tree for:

  • each orthodontic treatment at our practices
  • every 10 kg of plastic waste we generate
  • each staff member

Plastic Waste: Trees for Plastic

Plastic Waste: Trees for Plastic

For reasons of hygiene we cannot completely avoid plastic waste (rubber gloves, sterile packaging, etc.), but we compensate for this by planting additional trees: We plant an additional tree for every 10 kilogrammes of waste for recycling bin.

Dental Monitoring

Dental Monitoring

Modern, treatment methods designed to reduce the number and length of appointments, combined with tele-medical care, save our patients many trips to the practice and further improve orthodontic care at home.

Home Office

Home Office

Our home office workplaces avoid additional trips to work.

Video Telephony

Video Telephony

We have been relying on video telephony since 2008 to save unnecessary travel by our staff.

LED Lighting

LED Lighting

All of our locations are converting to LED lighting systems to save electricity.

Digital & Encrypted

Digital & Encrypted

X-rays and referral letters are no longer printed. Instead they are sent in digitally, in encrypted form.

Coffee Cups

Coffee Cups

We have replaced plastic cups with organic paper cups. The inner coating consists of PLA and is obtained from corn or beets. Our coffee cup is biodegradable, consists of renewable raw materials, is recyclable and 100% plastic free!

Ballpoint Pen

Ballpoint Pen

Our new pens are biodegradable. The pens are made of BioPlast and contain renewable raw materials. BioPlast is a new material which extracts plastics from the cardboard packaging of Tetra Pak (TM) in the recycling process.

Toothbrush Tablets

Toothbrush Tablets

At ADENTICS you will no longer find toothpaste tubes in the oral hygiene department. On the one hand, we want to prevent a tube from passing through several hands to protect against infection. On the other hand, we are thus reducing further unnecessary plastic waste as part of our ADENTICS green campaign.

Plastic-free oral hygiene: You get the toothbrush tablet from the reception from the glass bottle and brushing is done with an Ecobrush bamboo toothbrush.
