Sustainability at Madison No Fear Dentistry 

Did you know, every year dental practices generate 4.8 million lead foils, 28 million liters of toxic x-ray fixer, 3.7 tons of mercury waste, 1.7 billion sterilization pouches, 680 million chair barriers, light handle covers, and patient bibs... IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY.  Green Dentistry reduces waste and pollution, saves water, energy, and money, incorporates high-technology, and integrates a wellness approach.   

At Madison No Fear Dentistry, we not only care about our patients but our environment as well! This is why we have a strong commitment to minimize our carbon footprint on the environment. We pledge to rise above the standards to promote green initiatives. 

Small Changes = Big Impact 

Bring in your empty toothpaste tubes, floss containers, toothbrushes, and packaging (in a bag) to our dental practice. We are partnering with Terracycle to keep these oral health care products from going into our landfills.  Together, we can help reduce plastic waste on our planet.  You do not need to be a patient to do your part for the environment!
