A lot of friends have asked whether it is required to purchase an air purification system for their dental practice post COVID-19. Currently, there are no mandates in place that require offices to purchase air purifiers, however, we at Texas Dental Group put the safety of our patients and staff first always.
In dentistry, we have rigorous protocols that fight against germs and viruses. Disinfecting the office with antibacterial agents & proper disposal of medical waste has been a standard long before "social distancing" & "quarantining" became common language in American culture.
To continue that tradition, we have implemented an air filtration system to reduce contaminants significantly! We’ve incorporated the Air Scrubber Plus A/C filtration system into all four (4) offices of the Texas Dental Group.
What is Air Scrubber you ask? An air scrubber can be installed as part of the office’s central heating and cooling system. It uses UV light waves coupled with a catalytic process to attack germs and other particles while still in the air or on surfaces like countertops. Basically, when our system gets turned on, the air will flow through a titanium dioxide-coated plate. Once inside the plate, the particles pass through a strong UV light. This light works to break-up the makeup of particles and contaminants. Once they are disrupted, they become useless to infect the air.
Moreover, these next-generation purifiers (known as air scrubbers) have been shown to remove more than 99% of airborne and surface contaminants, killing pathogens on contact and destroying microorganisms in the air and on surfaces.
Air quality in the dental practice is an important subject that deserves careful consideration for its role in creating and maintaining a safe environment for returning patients and staff. We continue to do our best in keeping our offices safe. We believe air filtration is another supplemental tool that will help keep us moving in the right direction.
