Course Synopsis

Anthropogenic climate change can no longer be denied; globally, healthcare contributes roughly 4.6% to total global greenhouse gas emissions annually. All sectors of society need to reevaluate their methods of operation to mitigate these emissions if we are to slow down global warming and the consequences thereof. This presentation will offer suggestions as to how you can make your dental practice more sustainable, broken down into prevention, supply chain, transport, buildings and energy, drugs and devices, natural systems, food, and most importantly, leadership.
