Sustainability - Weiler Orthodontics and Invisalign

Dr. Weiler is passionate about responsible environmental stewardship and maintaining the highest standards of sustainability in dentistry. At Weiler Orthodontics and Invisalign, we lead out in numerous ways, including:

  • Aligner Recycling — We are one of the first orthodontic practices to recycle aligners, which require a specialized recycling process. We encourage our Invisalign patients to save both used and unused aligners so we can recycle them, and we make it easy to do!
  • Plastic Recycling — In addition to aligner recycling, we also utilize local resources to recycle consumer plastic in the office
  • Biodegradable gloves — Dr. Weiler uses special biodegradable gloves that completely degrade in a landfill within 2 years (unlike most medical-grade gloves in use today, which never completely degrade, even after decades in a landfill!)
  • Biodegradable trash bags — We use biodegradable disposables as much as possible, including biodegradable trash bags.
  • Compostable Keurig K-cups — This is another way we strive to utilize environmentally responsible disposables.
  • Reusable tote bags — We give these away to reduce the amount of plastic bags used in our community!
  • Cardboard recycling — We break down all the cardboard that comes into our office (which is a lot!) and recycle it here locally.

Our hard work toward sustainability has earned us the first-ever Sustainability Certification from a leading orthodontic organization!
