Air filtration protects dental patients and staff from the moment they enter the building. Because dental offices are highly-trafficked, publicly accessible places, they're faced with high volumes of VOCs, aerosols, bacteria, and other airborne contaminants. When these contaminants go uncontrolled, they accumulate in the airstream and settle on equipment, flooring, and furniture. Dental professionals and patients also spend extended periods-of-time in close contact with one another - creating higher exposure risks.
According to Business Insider, dental assistants, dental hygienists, and laboratory technicians are apart of the 47 American jobs that are most damaging to health right now - which is why implementing air filtration is so important. Air filtration and fume extraction systems are key to keeping the airstream filtered, cleaned, and well-circulated throughout any dental practice.
Implementing FumeXtractors portable air filtration systems in open office areas, waiting rooms, or exam rooms will keep clean air circulating throughout the space with 360° air intake and HEPA filtration.
Our aerosol fume extractors combine the best technology in the industry with feedback from dentists! They feature 4-layer HEPA filtration and a high-powered UVC germicidal light to eliminate the pathogens, viruses, and bacteria that are creating during aerosol-generating procedures.
HEPA filters are designed to target submicron-sized particles (smaller than 0.1 microns)! VOCs, aerosols, and other submicron-sized airborne contaminants adhere to the filter media fibers in our fume extractors at an almost 100% rate.
