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.

Wellesley Dental Group is excited to be hosting a Solar Panel Installation party on July 18th, 10-11am, at our office at 5 Seaward Rd in Wellesley. The town of Wellesley is celebrating the first commercial installation of solar panels in town, made possible with the help of our collaborators, The Power to Choose and Sustainable Wellesley. Members of Sustainable Energy Committee, and Wellesley’s Green Collaborative Network will be attending the event, among others.
Going solar has inspired us to do further research on how to maintain a sustainable dental practice. Green Dentistry is becoming a new standard; recycling, efficient energy use and reducing pollution are the main features of this trend, united under the umbrella of the”re-think” approach. Business owners need to re-think the way the resources are utilized and what kind of impact that has on the environment. First, let’s talk definitions and find out exactly what “Green Dentistry” is. Many experts agree that this term describes a practice that:

  • Reduces waste and pollution
  • Saves energy, water and money
  • Incorporates high-tech innovations
  • Is wellness based

Let’s explore all these options in detail:

Our Efforts of Protecting Young Athletes

Posted by on Jun 23, 2014 in Blogs, Office News | 0 comments

WDG_sports_mouthguard

Several weeks ago Wellesley Dental Group partnered up with Wellesley School Athletics to organize raffles among the students who are actively engaged in contact sports. Lacrosse, baseball and softball team players entered the drawing to get a complimentary custom sports mouthguard for one member on each team. The initiative, dubbed “Protecting Our Athletes”, was organized by Drs. Ali & Ali in an effort to spread awareness of the importance of oral protection on the sports field. Knocked-out and chipped teeth should not be on the list of trophies the young athletes get after a game. Their health, hundreds of dollars and parents’ piece of mind can be preserved with the help of a proper-fitting sports mouthguard!

After the drawings were complete, the lucky winners visited the office of Wellesley Dental Group at 5 Seaward Rd in Wellesley. The process started with an individual consultation, during which the students explored their options in different levels of protection, demanded by the sport they play, and specific preferences of the  design (team colors or logo). As you can see on the picture above, the mouthguard fits comfortably in the mouth and offers stylish protection! The young players had their custom sports mouthguards manufactured within a week and reported to be relieved to see how comfortable they are. A custom mouthguard allows the athlete to speak and breathe easily, without the need to clench their teeth to keep it place. Opposite is often the case with basic store-bought mouthguards.

Wellesley Dental Group is Going Solar!

Drs. Ali and Ali and the smile ambassadors at Wellesley Dental Group are going solar! We are excited to announce this next step as a part of our mission to go green, which we have been working toward for years. The first business in Wellesley to go solar, we look forward to promoting this sustainability-oriented initiative and reducing our impact on the environment.

Wellesley Dental Group partnered up with the Town of Wellesley Sustainable Energy Committee for an energy assessment, followed by a solar panels installation plan. The local solar initiative is an inspiration to re-think the energy consumption and further invest in going green. 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.

As a business, Wellesley Dental Group has shown continuous effort to make the office more sustainable. Digital x-rays are used as used at Wellesley Dental Group, therefore eliminating the need for chemicals, routinely used for x-ray film processing. Both the patients and the staff benefit from the lack of exposure to those chemicals, as well as the added (and perhaps most important!) benefit of less radiation exposure. Further, in the continuous effort to go becoming a fully “paperless” office, Wellesley Dental Group saves all records in a digital form, uses primarily email and mobile phone updates for the patients, and recycles the  paper and plastic.

Feel free to contact Drs. Ali & Ali and the caring team at Wellesley Dental Group if you have any thoughts or concerns; they will be happy to answer your questions! Contact us today at 781-237-9071 or smile@wellesleydentalgroup.com to set up an appointment and consultation.
