At the orthodontic office of Drs. Najem & Lehky, we're proud to provide orthodontic treatment to the greater Akron, OH area. But in addition to helping our patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles, we are committed to serving our community in a broader sense: both our home communities of Akron and Cortland, and our larger global community. That's why we're excited to announce a new step we've taken in making our practice more sustainable and environmentally friendly: our new Ora-Brite eco-friendly toothbrushes.

Making Orthodontics More Sustainable

Orthodontists and dentists everywhere provide disposable toothbrushes for patients to brush their teeth before an appointment. Unfortunately, though, most practices provide disposable plastic toothbrushes: and more often than not, that plastic ends up in a landfill. Plastic waste is one of the greatest environmental problems currently facing our society, and with 4.7 billion toothbrushes entering landfills every year, disposable plastic toothbrushes are a significant contributor to this problem.

That's why instead of plastic toothbrushes, we're proud to have transitioned to using Ora-Brite's new line of eco-friendly bamboo toothbrushes to our patients. Instead of plastic, these brushes use a handle made from bamboo, one of the most sustainable woods available. These brushes use a handle made from premium bamboo, a 100% biodegradable material that will break down naturally over time. Plus, bamboo is a fast-growing, low environmental impact wood, which means it's far less harmful to consume than plastics or even other biodegradable materials.
