FDI highlights sustainable dental practices on world environment day for a green future.
After the huge success of FDI’s Sustainability in Dentistry initiative over the past two years, FDI stated that they were proud to host a virtual summit on sustainable dental practices on the 5th June 2023 (world environment day).
The summit’s purpose is to deliver unique case studies, innovative ideas, and research projects, all in favor of decreasing the environmental impact of dentistry.
Prof. Ihsane Ben Yahya, FDI President, mentioned that “The strides we have made through this initiative are truly commendable, particularly the development of the Consensus Statement on Environmentally Sustainable Oral Healthcare,” and he also stated: “I am excited to continue our journey towards sustainability to ensure a healthy future for our patients, our profession and our planet.”
Erania Brackett, SVP, Customer Experience & Orthodontic Aligner Solutions, and Head of Sustainability at Dentsply Sirona states “As a founding member of the Sustainability in Dentistry partnership with FDI, Dentsply Sirona leverages its knowledge and resources to advance sustainability in the dental industry. By reducing its environmental impact and creating valuable resources for dental professionals, Dentsply Sirona is committed to a brighter future through its BEYOND sustainability strategy.”
We hope that such practices also obtain great interest among dentists in Iraq for building a healthier and brighter future.
