Eco Friendly Practice


Here at Milford Dentists, by changing what we use and how we do things, we are continually striving to decrease our waste, reduce our carbon foot print and become a more eco-friendly practice.


Here is what we do so far…

  • Digital radiographs
  • BPA and fluoride free filling options available
  • Amalgam free since 1999
  • Fully computerized system/ paper-less
  • Biodegradable paper cups
  • 100% Biodegradable and compostable bin liners
  • Autoclavable and reusable items rather than disposable items where possible
  • Recycling of soft plastics, plastics, paper and cardboard
  • Compostable wet wipes
  • Tissues ,toilet paper and paper towels made from recycled material
  • Bamboo interdental brushes
  • Natural face masks with more than 60% cellulose materials
  • Plastic barriers are oxo- biodegradable
  • Our disposable suction tips and micro brushes are oxo-degradable
  • Bulk buy items to reduce packaging waste
  • Local family run dental laboratory rather than increasing our carbon foot print by sending to an overseas lab.
  • Try to use New Zealand suppliers
  • Strictly monitor amalgam waste by testing the waste water and being conscious about New Zealand water ways
