Online PR News – 03-February-2016 – Chicago, IL – ORA® Oral Surgery & Implant Studio, a dental and practice specializing in oral and maxillofacial surgery in Chicago, was recently featured in the long anticipated 3rd Edition of "Office Design and Construction for the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon", an expansive practice management resource created by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS).
"Office Design and Construction for the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon" is the main resource that oral surgeons throughout the country utilize as a guideline to emulate the very best offices in the nation. This new edition was prepared with the intention of assisting oral surgeons with the design, building and/or retrofitting of their practice space, with an emphasis on green building principles and the creation of green practices. A photo of ORA® Oral Surgery & Implant Studio graces the cover of the publication and the resource also includes an in-depth case study about LEED Gold Certification and the green building and sustainable features of this downtown Chicago oral surgery practice.
ORA® Oral Surgery & Implant Studio has long placed an importance on green and sustainable features in the creation and operation of the practice. In addition to achieving LEED Gold Certification, the practice has received EDA Gold Certification by the Eco-Dentistry Association, has been recognized by the Council for Greening the Operating Room Initiative and is a multi-award recipient of Practice Greenhealth’s Partner for Change. ORA’s owner, Steven Koos, D.D.S., M.D., is also a Certified Sustainability Practitioner (CSR-P) by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA).
Dr. Koos built the first green oral surgery office in the nation in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood in 2008 and received LEED Gold Certification for the building in 2011. The Chicago oral surgeon is committed to green building and sustainable operation of his practice, from the materials used in designing the office space to energy use and sustainable protocols used in the office’s treatments and procedures.
The practice, specializing in jaw surgery, wisdom teeth removal and dental implant placement, is completely carbon negative, offsetting 200% of its calculated carbon emissions. Energy conservation is also part of the practice’s green operating initiatives, with 100% of its electrical power supplied by wind energy and the use of plumbing features that conserve water and energy-conserving sterilization appliances and electronics. Treatment procedures follow Health Care Without Harm, EDA, and Practice Greenhealth’s principles.
In addition to the recognition Dr. Koos has received for the creation of a green and sustainable oral surgery practice, ORA® is focused on providing exceptional medical and dental care in a tranquil, modern, patient-centered environment.
