The Dorset Hygienist was set up in 2019 after moving to Dorset and working in multiple dental practices as a Dental Hygienist. The more years that go by, the more patients I see, the more questions I get faced with. With one question in particular that I was embarrassed to answer - "are these recyclable?". I quickly realised that NONE of the products that I recommended for my patients were eco-friendly and were therefore damaging towards the environment. This got me thinking..... if I see 100 patients a month and could manage to change their oral hygiene habits, not only am I potentially saving their teeth, I am also helping to save our planet. This is when ecoral began.
