Greetings, dental enthusiasts! Jessica Martin here, and today, I am thrilled to share my recent coffee chat with the incredible Lynda Sherman. If you’re passionate about sustainable dentistry practices and boosting your practice’s profitability, Lynda is the go-to expert you need to know.
Meeting Lynda: A Journey into Dentistry
Before we dive into the eco-friendly realm, let me introduce you to Lynda. A dynamic force in the dental world, Lynda Sherman isn’t just a registered dental hygienist—she’s a triple threat. Alongside her consulting business, Lynda runs a nonprofit ensuring kids have access to oral health care, and she’s the brains behind “Get Mouthy,” an eco-friendly dental subscription box. Now, let’s zoom in on Lynda’s consulting magic.
From Broadcast Dreams to Dental Passion
Lynda’s journey into dentistry is nothing short of serendipitous. Initially enrolled in a broadcast journalism program, Lynda’s path took an unexpected turn when she signed for a dental package delivered to her neighbor. Fast forward, and Lynda found herself deeply passionate about dentistry, especially preventive care for children.
Consulting Business: A Fusion of Dentistry and Sustainability
Lynda’s consulting business is a perfect blend of dental expertise and an unwavering commitment to sustainability. Our conversation kicked off with Lynda sharing her dental pet peeve—chair covers. She made a compelling case for ditching these unnecessary items, citing environmental impact and lack of mandates.
As we delved deeper, Lynda unraveled a treasure trove of eco-friendly practices for dental offices. One standout recommendation—swap disposable items for reusable alternatives. From patient bibs to cups, Lynda emphasized the potential for offices to save thousands annually while making environmentally conscious choices.
Remote Consultations: A Green Approach to Consulting
What caught my attention was Lynda’s dedication to reducing emissions. Her consulting services are primarily remote, aligning with her commitment to environmental responsibility. Through virtual consultations and audits, Lynda guides dental offices towards sustainable and profitable practices.
Beyond Profitability: A Legacy of Responsibility
Our conversation touched on various sustainability aspects, from using reusable hand towels to eliminating unnecessary plastic barriers. Lynda’s message was clear—dentists should consider the long-term impact of their choices on the Earth and future generations. Lynda’s services extend beyond profitability; they’re about leaving a legacy of responsible and sustainable dental practices.
