The GreenDOCâ„¢ Certification Program Includes: 

GreenDOC How to Guides

Along with your Program Manager, the GreenDOC How to Guides provide specific measures that qualify a practice for certification. The How to Guides walk offices through each initiative identifying the benefit to planet, patients, and/or the practice, and how to gain points toward certification for achieving the standard.

GreenDOC Action Plans

The GreenDOC Action Plans help dental practices document and create policies to maintain their office's green initiatives over time, and to easily introduce eco-friendly initiatives to employees, service providers and patients. GreenDOC Action Plans can also be used to document eco-friendly initiatives an office isn't implementing now, but plans to in the future.

GreenDOCTM Worksheets

GreenDOC Worksheets are simple forms dental offices submit to the EDA verifying their green initiatives, and documenting the points awarded for each. GreenDOC worksheets make it simple for dental offices to track their points toward EDA Bronze, Silver, or Gold Certification.

GreenDOCTM Categories of Eco-Friendly Dental Practice
