Wellesley Dental Group joins list of solar-powered Wellesley buildings
Matthew Hornung ’16 and Olivia Gieger ’17
The drive for solar power just keeps pushing onwards. The latest advancement for Wellesley: solar panels on a local business.
Drs. Ejaz and Femina Ali of Wellesley Dental Group are in the process of installing solar panels on their office in town. They are installing the panels through the Sustainable Energy Committee’s town-wide initiative, More Power to Choose, which aims to lower energy usage through home energy audits and providing renewable energy opportunities to residents, like their easily-accessible solar power option. By signing up for solar, not only is Wellesley Dental Group reducing their carbon footprint, but they are also helping the town move closer to reaching its goal of installing 50 solar arrays.
Drs. Ali and Ali are “excited to announce this next step as a part of their mission to go green, which they have been working toward for years,” according to a recent press release. “Creating our own clean energy is not only a great economic choice but also is a step towards a common goal of creating a better environment for our children.”
Solar power is not the only way that Drs. Ali and Ali have introduced sustainability into their practice. Wellesley Dental Group also uses digital x-rays, which eliminates the need for potentially radioactive chemicals used in other routine x-rays. The office is also engaged in a continuous effort to be completely “paperless” by digitally saving all records, communicating with patients via email and cell phone, and recycling all paper and plastic.
For those interested in learning more about solar power in town, Wellesley Dental Group will be hosting a solar open house in conjunction with the Town’s Sustainable Energy Committee on Friday, July 18 at 10am. The program will include musical entertainment and commentary from Sustainable Energy Committee Chair Ellen Korpi and Selectman Ellen Gibbs. Wellesley Dental Group is located at 5 Seaward Road in Wellesley. All are welcome to join.

Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean the Farmers Market is!
Every Thursday from 2-6 pm until late October, the Wellesley Farmers Market will be in the Whole Foods parking lot with bushels of fresh produce and more.
This week’s market will feature the first “Farm to School” event for Wellesley. Local farmers will have activities and games to play with children to raise awareness of local farming land and where we get our food.
There will also be chickens to meet, honey tasting, and much more. Why not come out for this fun, educational event and purchase some farm fresh produce to take home?
Drs. Ali and Ali and the Caring Team at Wellesley Dental Group are thrilled to announce an Invisalign special event on September 27th from 3-6 PM! The Drs. will be providing free consultations to answer your questions about Invisalign treatment, the clear way to straighten teeth.
If you have wondered if Invisalign is right for you, make an appointment for this event!
You will also receive a complimentary teeth whitening (valued at $550) with your scheduled treatment.
The best part of this event is that part of the proceeds will be donated directly to the Wellesley Food Pantry, an organization committed to helping local residents in need. Now that’s something to smile about!
Space is limited so contact us today at 781-237-9071 or email@example.com.
On Sunday, June 3rd, Mass Bay Community College was bustling with excitement for the 5th annual Truck Day! Wellesley Mother’s Forum hosts this event to benefit the Bright Horizons Foundation, an organization committed to helping children and families in crisis.
Our team had an informational table to help spread oral health awareness. Children could demonstrate their brushing technique on Christopher, our mascot, and receive a balloon and bubbles. We have a strong emphasis on prevention and are committed to helping the community maintain healthy teeth for life!
Truck Day is an opportunity for children to explore the trucks and cars they love. Some of the vehicles in attendance included a fire truck and a police car. There was also a petting zoo and children’s music for added entertainment.
