More about Dr. David P Davis

Clean water is one of our most precious resources.  The profession of dentistry has a special responsibility for protecting our water.  In North Carolina, wastewater from dental offices has contaminated many rivers with mercury.  Researching this led Dr. Davis to produce this informational video about solving the problem.  Above, Janna volunteers for a local clean water initiative, gathering water samples from Hominy Creek near the dental office.  The Environmental Quality Institute's Volunteer Water Information Network, formerly part of UNC Asheville, and now part of the Western North Carolina Alliance, monitors water from this and other sites for various pollutants. Healthy Smiles, Healthy Planet - It's all Connected! Like all businesses and industries, the profession of dentistry has many opportunities to help protect the natural environment of the communities where we live and work. Here are some the efforts of our office and staff: Reducing paper use 2011 is our first year as a chartless dental practice.  Last year, using a tool from the RainforestMaker group, we calculated our paper use at about 90 trees per year.  The biggest component of that was our system of patient charts.  Our paper copy machine had just died. One of our vendors, Advanced Business Equipment, suggested a technology upgrade.  As of 2011, our new patient charts and bookkeeping system are now electronic.  Each day we convert more paper, and more clutter, into a digital format.  And our new, heavy duty shredder is busy making mulch for our gardens. Certified carbon neutral In 2007 we became the first certified carbon neutral dental office in Western North Carolina. To achieve this, we have incorporated energy efficiency measures in all phases of our office operation. And then, working through the non-profit group Appalachian Offsets, we have donated funds to help others to increase their own energy efficiency. We invite you to join us! Together we can keep our air cleaner, use our resources more wisely, and combat the hazards of global warming. One effort underway in our area is called the Carbon Neutral Business Ad Campaign. This is a loosely knit group, with leadership provided by Bend of Ivy Lodge and Appalachian Offsets, working to increase public awareness about the importance of carbon neutrality, and supporting environmentally responsible businesses. In the short term, ads donated at cost by local media will increase the visibility and public awareness of local carbon neutral businesses. In the long term, we hope to mobilize market forces to encourage other businesses to become carbon neutral. Protection from mercury We do not use dental amalgam fillings, which consist of about 50% mercury. However, like all restorative dental offices, we do remove old dental fillings. For this reason our office is designed with the most advanced technology to remove even the most minute particles of mercury from our wastewater, preventing this toxic waste from entering the public sewer system or our waterways. For more information on steps that dental offices can take to protect the environment, see guidelines from the American Dental Association. Digital XRs are cleaner All of our X-rays are fully digital. Not only does this technology greatly reduce exposure to patients, it also eliminates the use of x-ray chemicals necessary to develop x-ray film. Therefore, we release none of these toxic chemicals into groundwater, streams or public wastewater. Saving electricity and water In addition to using a dental vacuum requiring 50% of the electricity of traditional units, our waterless vaccum system can reduce the overall water use in a dental office by 90%. An organic touch Our organic gardens, full of wild birds, perennial flowers, and edible landscaping, create a beautiful and nurturing setting for patients receiving dental treatment. Our landscape has been recognized with the Environmental Excellence Award of the community group Quality Forward, which promotes a greener Buncombe County.  Phil Davis, D.D.S., P.A. 655 Brevard Road Ashevi
