At Advanced United Refining (AUR), we recognize the vital role that dental practices play in providing care and maintaining oral health. However, it’s equally important to consider the environmental impact of dental operations. In this blog, we will explore how dental scrap refining, specifically through our certified destruction services, can contribute to a greener and more sustainable future for dental practices. Let’s dive in!


Reducing Waste and Landfill Impact

The dental industry generates a significant amount of waste, including discarded dental scrap materials like crowns, bridges, and amalgam. By participating in dental scrap refining, you can significantly reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. Our certified destruction services at AUR ensure that these materials are securely handled, refined, and recycled, minimizing their environmental impact.

Precious Metal Recovery and Resource Conservation

Within dental scrap materials, precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum can be found. By engaging in dental scrap refining, dental practices have the opportunity to recover these valuable resources. At AUR, we utilize advanced refining techniques to extract and retrieve precious metals from dental scrap. This not only reduces the need for new mining operations but also conserves finite natural resources.
