Bio Waste Segregation

Bio-medical waste is a waste that is generated during the diagnosis, treatment of human beings and is contaminated with patients’ body fluids. This can be syringes, needles, ampoules, materials, disposables plastics and microbiological wastes.

Proper disposal of waste from 4 Squares Dentistry is of paramount importance because of its infectious and hazardous characteristics. We strictly follow the protocols for bio-waste segregation and disposal at our dental clinic in Medavakkam.


Segregation refers to the basic separation of different categories of waste generated at source and thereby reducing the risks as well as cost of handling and disposal. At our dental hospital in Gowrivakkam, we give utmost importance to segregation as it is the most crucial step in bio-medical waste management. Effective segregation alone can ensure effective biomedical waste management.
