Protecting Your Health
We take great pride in our strict infection control procedures. In addition to the standard level of required measures, we also use a closed-circuit distilled water system, superior high volume suction, Surgically Clean Air purifiers, iQ Air suction units to reduce harmful aerosols, ozone sterilization techniques, and barriers whenever possible. Although not required, we do have a mercury separator to prevent harmful materials from going back into our public water system, and we have a special ventilation system designed to remove even more of the trace amounts of mercury from the air. It’s important for our patients to know how dedicated we are to protecting their health.
Surgically Clean Air
Surgically Clean Air’s JADE Air Purifier is a Premium, Commercial-Grade Air System that is One of the Most Advanced on the Market.
Clinical research study shows that the Surgically Clean Air JADE (SCA5000C) Air Purifier has excellent performance in Hospitals, Medical Labs and Dental Clinics to clean the indoor air.
Air Flow Performance – Engineered to maximize the air change rate by moving large volumes without the air drag that often occurs in more inferior air purifiers, Unlike those other air purifiers, the top air outlet design allows air to cascade out the top and efficiently flow throughout the room while keeping the sound volume at an industry leading low level (~55DB). It’s as quiet as a standard household dishwasher. Household quiet, but with the strength to provide healthier air in large rooms also – which is perfectly suited for medical, commercial, or residential environments.
The JADE air purification system utilizes Surgically Clean Air’s multi-stage air purifying technologies that work together to clean, purify and re-energize the indoor air. The multi stage filtration system captures dust particles, pollen, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), mold, allergens, viruses, odors (like formaldehyde and smoke), bio-aerosols, nitrous oxide, and many other pollutants that are found in the inside air in workplaces and residences. For an air purifier to deliver its benefits throughout the indoor space it needs to move large volumes of air through its filtration system effectively without impacting those people that are closest to it by creating a ‘breeze’ or being too loud.
iQ Air Environmental control for dental offices
Proven protection against aerosolized viruses, bacteria, disinfectants and mercury vapor
IQAir extraoral suction air purification systems provide a line of defense against harmful airborne materials and infectious pathogens that can threaten the health and safety of patients and staff. When combined with intraoral suction, IQAir extraoral suction air purifiers right at the patient source can reduce aerosol levels, bacterial colonies, and airborne viral particles from dental procedures to almost zero.
Clean air protects the health of patients and staff
The dental workplace can expose dentists, staff, and patients to a wide variety of air pollutants during routine dental work, including infectious aerosol particles from high-speed instruments as well as airborne pathogens like bacteria and viruses. In order to effectively clean the air in a dental office, an air purifier must be able to use extraoral suction and high-efficiency particles and gas filtration technology to capture both particles (aerosols, microorganisms, droplets, dust) and gaseous chemicals (mercury vapors, gaseous organic compounds).
