The Environmental Challenge

The Environmental Challenge

We live in an age of daunting ecological change; an age in which rain forests lose their trees, coral reefs lose their color, mountain tops lose their snow, and poles lose their ice. Attending these changes are the extinction of thousands of species of flora and fauna, the impending loss of thousands more, and the debilitation of our environment. These are bellwethers that summon us to protect and preserve our planet.

Green Dental Society

Green Dental Society

To address the environmental challenge of our time, Dr. and Mrs. Rothenberg co-founded the Green Dental Society, an international non-profit organization that promotes eco-friendly practices within the dental profession.

The 6R Program


Our ethos is expressed in the “6-R” mantra: “reduce, replace, remove, reuse, recycle, refresh” that is reflected in such practices as:


  • Heat loss with well insulated walls, windows and pipes
  • Energy loss with regular HVAC maintenance
  • Paper printing with digital communications


  • Incandescent bulbs with fluorescent bulbs
  • Disposable batteries with rechargeable batteries
  • Paper files with digital files
  • Toxic cleaning products with eco-friendly products


  • Eliminate x-ray film and chemicals with digital imaging
  • Collect amalgam, mercury, lead waste with an amalgam separators


  • Envelopes, paper clips, paper
