Our environment

We are keen to practice green dentistry at Gunyah Dental.

Green Dentistry:

We are helping to preserve our environment by adopting the following:

Waste reduction

  • We purchase in bulk to reduce packaging and transportation costs
  • We set printers for double-sided and greyscale printing
  • We continue to implement digital technology for imaging, dental records and marketing

Energy Conservation

  • We are installing LED lights in administrative and staff areas
  • We switch off electrical equipment and air conditioning at night (at power)


  • We re-use lab and postal boxes
  • We recycle old instruments, which turns dental instruments into industrial metal
  • We use recycled copy paper
