Flame retardant furnishings may have been created with protection in mind, but their after effects can be detrimental.
Chemicals used to treat the filling and upholstery of guest and lounge seating seen in many dental office waiting areas are considered by many scientists as the new lead.
They were invented to slow the spread of fires, but after decades of use, wide‐spread testing has shown they contribute toward hormone disruption and certain types of cancer.
Solving problems takes a creative approach — something the designers at Benco Dental’s CenterPoint Design embrace. Their goal: making sure your dental practice furniture works well, while ensuring the health and safety of your patients, and the planet.
Ask yourself, “Have we made the best choices possible?”
Only by continuing to ask that question and making sustainability a priority can we be confident in creating a better world.
