Water shortage is considered as a major problem worldwide. Moreover, the adverse effects of climate change would make the issue worse. Most classical dental facilities had inappropriate water consumption practices. Green dentistry is an innovative approach to a dental procedure that is environmentally sustainable while also saving money and time by minimizing waste, conserving water and energy, and lowering pollution through the use of cutting-edge techniques and procedures. However, scarcity of studies about this topic represented the main challenge to our study which was overcome by carrying out precise data collection. Our main objective was to clarify the role of eco-friendly dental technology in water saving. Environmental case study approach was used to answer research question and formulate a hypothesis. Data was collected from several evidence based sources. The study results showed that there was a significant reduction in water consumption after the implementation of Eco dental options. The current findings shed light on the significant role of green dentistry on water saving and serves as a base of future research.
