Since its launch in 2021, the Sustainability in Dentistry Project has gained significant momentum to raise awareness among oral health professionals, industry and the public by leading the implementation of actions to help reduce the environmental impacts of dentistry. In the new project phase, dental professionals will gain access to valuable educational tools and resources to make a positive impact on the environment and society. The new phase is receiving valuable support from industry partners including Dentsply Sirona, Haleon, and Colgate. Furthermore, FDI is delighted to welcome Sunstar and SDI Limited as new partners, showcasing their dedication and commitment to this project.

Environmental sustainability is an issue that involves multiple stakeholders and requires action and collaboration from many different actors. Through the knowledge of various sectors, a healthier and more sustainable future for all can be reimagined. The Sustainability in Dentistry Project is essential to developing resources for dental practices and patients to create a more sustainable world. The project is key to uniting stakeholders through initiatives such as the launch of the Consensus Statement on Environmentally Sustainable Oral Healthcare. Furthermore, to date 265 dental practices have shown their commitment to sustainable practices through registering for the Sustainability toolkit, and 125 stakeholders from the oral healthcare supply chain have signed the Pledge for Sustainable Dentistry
