Dinka Dental practice installed Toggled lighting

Dinka Dental

Located in Sterling Heights, Michigan, doctors John Dinka and Catherine Osinski Dinka were looking for a lighting solution that would provide the proper illumination for dental shade matching, with the added benefit of being eco-friendly.

Annually, the dental practice needed to replace all of the fluorescent tubes in the office which was costly, time-consuming, and resulted in nearly 100 mercury-laden, non-recyclable tubes.

With a lifetime rating surpassing 50,000 hours, and based on their hours of operation, the Dinkas estimate that they won’t have to change any Toggled® LED light tubes for approximately 10 years.

Not only were the color and quality of the LED lights brighter and more natural-looking, the longevity of Toggled lighting was, in John’s words, “a no-brainer.” The fact that Toggled lights are designed and manufactured in Michigan was also important to the dentists, who are pleased to support local, state, and US-based businesses.
