Green dentistry is a high-tech approach that reduces the environmental impact of dental practices and encompasses a service model for dentistry that supports and maintains wellness. It is based on waste reduction, energy conservation, and pollution prevention. Increasing consumption of diminishing natural resources, air and water pollution, ever-growing landfills, and the effects of global warming, makes saving our environment imperative. The aim of this article was to provide a series of "green" recommendations that dentists around the world can implement to become leading stewards of the environment. By conserving water, using digital imaging and recycling the many recyclable items that pass through the office of a green dentist, a great impact is made. So, going green is the need of the hour.
