As leaders in patient protection, we’ve been tasked with leading studies and implementing solutions as a model for other dental offices around the country to follow. The key factors in patient protection are the aggressive management of air quality, the use of personal protection and implementing social distancing standards. Making good on our 15 year patient safety promise, we have instituted our Patient Safety Plan (PSP). The management of air quality, use of personal protection and social distancing all are independent layers of protection that overlap and complement each other.
To ensure our Air Quality, we’ve added the HealthPro Series HyperHEPA filtration system
This air purification system is individually tested by IQAir to ensure that the air filtration system meets the highest of standards. The total system is tested for efficiency – the actual air coming out of the outlet. If the system is not delivering 99.97% cleaner air or better, then it doesn’t get put into use. Our air filtration system that is now in use at our office filters 99.5% of harmful ultrafine pollution particles down to 0.003 microns in size. This is 100 times smaller than what is achieved with ordinary air filtration technology and 10 times smaller than a virus.
Featured Filter Technology
- Micro-particle filtration: Eliminates micro-particles such as pollen, pet dander and mold spores
- Granular activated carbon absorption: Eliminates volatile organic compounds (VOC), which are responsible for odors
- Pelletized chemisorption: Destroys harmful chemicals, such as formaldehyde, by an oxidation process inside a chemically active alumina pellet
- HyperHEPA Filtration: Eliminates bacteria, viruses and combustion particles from automobiles and smoke, through a nano-fiber structure
In addition, the IQAir HealthPro Plus has received more “Best Air Purifier” awards and reviews than any other air purifier on the market today.
As mentioned, our top priority is providing the safest environment possible for our patients.
