Enacting Change: Dentistry, Dental Hygiene Students Push Green Plans

A group of green-minded students is working to reduce the carbon footprint of the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences.

The Student Environmental Group was created earlier this year to look at ways to decrease the amount of waste in the college. They’re focused on what is being thrown away in the clinic, pre-clinic and in the college as a whole.

Madison Flamand, a fourth-year dentistry student, said a lot of paper, plastics and gloves are thrown out in the clinic, which sees about 130 patients each day. However, they face many challenges when it comes to making the clinic more environmentally friendly.
