Réduire l’empreinte carbone et environnemental d’un service dentaire hospitalier

Abstract : Dental surgeons are starting to raise concerns about the impact of dental practice on the environment.
Important Greenhouse gas emissions are being released by the current care systems. In 2014-2015, 64.5% of the dentistry’s carbon footprint was dedicated to travels, 15.3% to the energy used and 19% to the supply chain. Most of the waste comes from disposable objects or products that prevents the equipment to get infected.
The aim of this study is to explore and think about ideas that could help create an environmentally friendly hospital service. After a few explanations on global warming and its consequences, we mentioned the health care system’s carbon footprint and dental service’s bioclimatic conception. We also made some suggestions to reduce and limit the garbage, and use eco-friendly materials. Finally, the future perspectives concerning the digital aspect of our profession was brought up, along with its impact and the necessity to include climate change notions and environmental friendly practices in our medical studies.
