The Nation’s First Certified Green Dentist in Berkeley, CA Welcomes Patients to a Truly Unique Experience

When you think of the term “green living” your mind most likely jumps right to topics such as energy conservation, alternative energies, and recycled goods. Did you know that there is a dentist in the Berkeley, CA area which is the first to have been certified by regulating agencies as a green business? Dr. Ruhi Sangha, Dr. Praj Kamat and the team at Transcendentist are incredibly proud to have met the requirements to be green dentists to patients.

There are businesses everywhere who are adopting this better way of living, but Transcendentist is the first dental office in the country to be recognized as a green business. Every aspect of what Drs. Sangha and Kamat implement is done with the environment in mind. From the paint used on the walls to the paper used in the office, everything at Transcendentist is done with the intent of keeping their footprint on the earth at a minimum.

Why Green?

Living green offers so much to the world we live in and the people who inhabit this planet. It has been reported by the World Health Organization that there are upwards of 13 million deaths which have been caused, in some form or fashion, but environmental factors which could have been prevented. Asthma, COPD, stoke, and cardiovascular disease are some health issues which have been linked to environmental causes. By living green and adopting green practices, we are not only helping the earth, but the people who live here with us. 

A healthier environment means healthier people. But it also means healthier food and increased natural resources that help us all save money. Using energy efficient lightbulbs, such as are used at Transcendentist, has been linked to a significant reduction of carbon dioxide pollution in the air. Not only that but using energy-efficient appliances has been found to reduce an individual’s electric bill by up to 30 percent annually.

Green Dentistry

Here are some of the things being done at Transcendentist that have allowed them to become the first green dentist office in the nation:

  • Wallpaper made from reclaimed paper
  • Furniture constructed of recycled wood
  • The use of steam-based instrument sterilization (no chemicals)
  • Digital imaging (no x-rays) which results in 75 to 90 percent less radiation
  • The office is cleaned using environmentally safe cleaning methods

These are just a few things the team at Transcendentist is doing to minimize their footprint on this planet. If you are interested in a dental experience that has your whole health at heart and who want what is best for this beautiful Earth we all share, please call, and schedule an appointment with Transcendentist today at (510) 800-7660
