Dr. Wittlinger has made it one of his goals to make his office as environmentally friendly as possible. We have worked hard to integrate these views throughout every aspect of our practice.
Our office is predominantly paperless. Our new software systems have eliminated paper charts and limited our need for paper, while at the same time maximizing efficiency. We are constantly striving to eliminate paper usage in the office to limit our stress on the environment.
Photographs, radiographs (x-rays), diagnostic models and charts are all digital. We have eliminated the waste and health hazards of film processing. It is this digital technology that allows us to store all patient records in the computer. Digital records are friendly to the environment. In addition, digital radiographs (x-rays) reduce patient radiation exposure by up to 90% over the conventional film format. Plus, digital records are more easily shared with dental professionals to optimize communication throughout your treatment.
Your health is important to us, and our practice follows the most advanced guidelines for instrument sterilization and infection control. We utilize state-of-the-art sterilization equipment that destroys all contaminants. Each instrument is cleaned and sterilized inbetween patient visits. The water systems used at the dental practice chairs are self-contained and purified as well. You can be assured that our practice takes every step possible to ensure your health and safety.
