Advanced Dental Arts is a full service dental office operating in Scituate, Massachusetts. Whether you need a cleaning, basic general dentistry, or advanced cosmetic work, they look beyond your individual teeth so that they can treat not just your mouth, but you the individual. Healthy teeth and gums are just the start. Advanced Dental Arts wants you to smile with confidence at work, at weddings, at reunions, at church, and everywhere. Like many dental offices, Advanced Dental Arts is conscious of the fact that they generate a large volume of medical waste every single day. Many of common dental instruments and materials can't be recycled for sanitary health reasons. However, Advanced Dental Arts invested in digital x-rays and over the last year, switched to full computerization and eliminated all paper patient records. Eliminating such paper use and recycling are a big step to reducing what they can. Advanced Dental Arts also offsets their remaining carbon footprint with Carbonfund.org.
