Our dentistry and the environment

Hi All,

Since Key West Family Dentistry was opened, we always had the environment on our mind. Today, we are no different than the first day we opened.

Mercury is a heavy metal, and discharging it into the environment can cause serious damage, especially to the Chesapeake Bay, and all the sea creatures that live there.

Even though we don’t use any amalgam fillings at all in our office, replacing an old metal filling still can cause damage to the environment. We would like to assure you that we use an advanced suction system that traps all of the mercury and metal debris associated with removing a filling in a special container┬áthat is discarded periodically by a special company that handles biohazard materials.

As we strive to be on the cutting edge of dentistry, we do our dentistry with the environment in mind always.
