DENTAL Safety Technology - COVID-19 Update
The health and safety of our patients, staff, and families have always been our first priority. In addition to everything we do as part of our normal operations and updated Operating Procedure, we are continually investing in new and upgraded dental safety technology. Below are some highlights of technologies we have implemented to add further protection from COVID-19 as well as other viruses, bacteria, and allergens.
Isolite Dental isolation and aerosol reduction
During routine dental procedures the tools used by the dentist and hygienist, such as ultrasonic scalers, high-speed handpieces, etc., cause some spatter and aerosols to be generated. The "spray" from dental tools and rinsing contains particles of water and can also carry viruses, bacteria, and saliva. At River Oak Dental, we take extensive measures to capture and safely contain aerosols.
MedEVAC Chair-Side Aerosol Extraction
Our MedEVAC MultiPure system is highly effective at capturing and filtering aerosols because it enables direct capture at the source. This chair-side super filter features 3 stages of filtration including a pre-filter, chemical filter, and HEPA filter to ensure aerosols are safely captured and contained.
pureAir 3000 dental office Air Purification
Clean air and surfaces are essential to our practice, and whether you are in the reception area or taking a seat in the dental chair our pureAIR 3000 units will be nearby maintaining exceptional air quality utilizing 5 incredible technologies:
- Photo Catalytic Oxidation
- Scalable Ozone Generation
- Needlepoint Ionization
- Pulse Ionization
- Electrostatic Filtration
Kills Mold, Mildew, Bacteria, Viruses, and Odors
- Utilizing four proven air purification technologies, pureAir 3000 significantly reduces all types of germs and fungus as well as eliminating odors of all kinds, including those from pets, cooking, and smoking.
Cleans Air & Surfaces
- Unlike filters that only affect air that passes through them, pureAir 3000 delivers powerful purification to the sources of pollution, both in the air and on surfaces, covering up to 3000 square feet of living space.
Removes Allergens from Your Breathing Space
- The ionic power of pureAir 3000 causes allergens to clump together until they are heavy enough to fall out of the breathing space and be swept up or caught in your HVAC filter.
