May 18th, 2020- Over the last several weeks, we have been busy procuring personal protection equipment, additional air filtration units, and sneeze guards. Moreover, we have been studying and developing infection control protocols that would minimize exposure to an inadvertent case of COVID-19 in our office. After this preparation, we feel comfortable in providing an environment that is safe for you and for our staff.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail or phone. Please stay safe and healthy!

ULV COLD FOGGER C100- HYPOCHLOROUS ACID
To fog a liquid is to create a mist of very small particles. The mist is released into an enclosed space.
Once the mist lands on a surface, it kills bacteria and virus before it evaporates.
Foggers use large amounts of low-pressure air to aerosolize liquids before dispersing the mist through a nozzle.
A traditional spray creating particles in the 50 micron range, while fogging results in fine particles less than 20 microns in size.
Fogging has superior surface area coverage; the fog lingers, allowing it to fully envelop a space, including hard to reach areas.
Hypochlorous acid is the disinfectant we use for ultra-low volume fogging because of its safety profile and its ease of use.
Ultra-low volume fogging using 200ppm hypochlorous acid is used as an adjunct to conventional disinfecting protocols.
It offers an opportunity to address aerosolized viruses and also helps decontaminate potential fomites.
Hypochlorous acid is an eco-friendly, non-toxic solution that is free of harsh chemicals and toxic fumes, making it ideal for use around humans, animals and plants.
*We use this between every patient and at the end of every day*
ADS Extraoral Dental Suction System
During treatment, high volumes of droplets and aerosols produced by high-speed handpieces and ultrasonic scalers affect dentist’s health and safety. The ADS Extraoral Dental Suction System removes the droplets and aerosols from the origin, killing the chance of attaching to the dentist’s and patient's bodies during treatment and to eliminate pathogens from entering the air.
Medify Air Purifiers
Pre-filter removes hair, fibers, and large particles like dander.
The high-efficiency H13 TRUE HEPA filter is tested to remove 99.9% of particles down to 0.1 microns.
This medical-grade filter easily catches pollen, dust mites, and other tiny airborne particles you can't see.
Substantial carbon filter with carbon pellets remove toxic odors, smoke, and formaldehyde.
Cleans a room up to 1,600sq ft in 1 hour.
Cleans a room up to 840sq ft in 30 minutes.
Cleans a room up to 420sq ft in 15 minutes.

A glass divider or sneeze guard helps stop the spread of diseases transmitted through coughs and sneezes.
This helps protect employees and patients by using a washable clear divider that creates a physical separation and helps maintain social distancing.
