Berkeley, CA (January 20, 2011) – The Eco-Dentistry Association™ (EDA), an international membership association formed to promote environmentally sound practices in dentistry, recently announced that its co-founder, Ina Pockrass, has been selected to present at the prestigious 2011 State of Green Business Forums.
The State of Green Business Forums are two-day events taking place throughout the month of February in three cities nationwide: February 2-3 in San Francisco, CA; February 9-10 in Chicago, IL; and February 16-17 in Washington, DC.
Specifically, Pockrass will hold a presentation at each forum entitled, “One Great Idea: Transforming an Industry without Pulling Teeth.” Pockrass will speak to her passion for transforming the dental industry into one that honors people and the planet, and to the economic benefits of the green dentistry movement. She will share her personal journey from intellectual property attorney to green dentistry standard-bearer, and how collaboration between patients, dental practitioners, and dental product manufacturers is making dentistry’s future brighter, more cost effective, and easier on the Earth.
