Infection Control Protocols
Recently, we invested in an air filtration system from Surgically Clean Air to make the air in our office cleaner and more pure. We now have a medical grade air purification system: Surgically Clean Air, which uses a 6-stage filtration system and that filters particulates and allergens out of the air, kills bacteria, viruses, mold, fungi. These filters meet the guidelines* for general surgery applications. (*ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 52.2-2007)
Secondly we have purchased an At Source Oral Aerosol Vacuum. This vacuum is designed specifically to remove and filter potentially toxic vapors and microbiological contaminants away from the breathing area of the dentist, assistant and patient.
A disinfected surface is only clean until it comes in contact with the next particle or contaminant. Our office uses Vytis Shield Surface Coatings to provide a 99.13% reduction of bio-burden on all treated surfaces for up to one year, with hospital proven results.
