Our Resmile Recycling Program

D-spa is excited to announce that we have partnered with Dsmile for the launch for the Resmile Recycling Program.

Created by our founder, Dr Joseph Badr, this program aims to fight the war against dental waste.

How does it work?

Simply drop off your old toothbrushes, empty toothpastes and used floss into a Resmile bin at one of our 5 d-spa clinics, where they’ll get sorted, separated, cleaned and reused to make new products.

Dsmile have also created a reusable and biodegradable Resmile pouch for storing and returning your used dental products. Come pick up your pouch at your next appointment.

Our circular recycling program works in 4 simple steps:


  1. Return = Pop your old toothbrushes, empty toothpastes and used floss into your Re:smile pouch
  2. Drop = Deposit your products in a Re:smile bin at your nearest d-spa clinic
  3. Collect = Dsmile will organise pick-up for processing
  4. Reuse = The plastics and glass are separated, cleaned and reused to make new products.

Why is this needed?

Did you know that over 30 million toothbrushes are thrown away in Australia each year. Most can’t be curbside recycled and end up in landfill, where they can take up to 500 years or more to break down.

This program will supplement the many other environmental initiatives we have implemented here at d-spa. We’re so proud to be a part of the Resmile Recycling Program, to do our part for the environment and make the world a better and greener place.

Do I need to clean the items before I put them in a Resmile bin?
No. However our Re:smile bins only accept dry products, so don’t bring toothpaste tubes which still have a lot of product in them.
My packaging is damaged. Can it still participate in the Resmile program?
Yes! Your used product does not need to be in perfect condition to be recycled.We even accept toothpaste tubes that are entirely cut open.
What can I recycle through this program?
Any brand of toothbrush and toothpaste tube will be accepted. For a detailed list of Dsmile products, see below.

The program does not accept;

  • Packaging that still contains lots of product
  • Used floss
  • Dsmile outer cartons
