Sustainable Dentistry How-to Guide: Webinars
The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare in partnership with Health Education England is hosting a webinar series to launch our how-to guide for sustainable dentistry.
The webinars will introduce sustainability in healthcare and dentistry, and each webinar is worth one hour of verifiable CPD. The first webinar focussed on the topics of energy, biodiversity and greenspace. Speakers included Dr Brett Duane, Associate Professor in Dental Public Health at Trinity College Dublin, Dr Frances Mortimer, Medical Director of the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare and Dr Gavin Ballantyne, an ecologist and lecturer at Edinburgh Napier University. Mr Miguel Colaço, Principal Dentist of Honeycomb Dental Clinic, discussed creating a sustainable dental practice - ranging from installing solar panels to reducing waste, composting and creating a 'living roof.'
