Learn more about how we minimize the spread of infection and the risk of COVID-19 transmission
At Bronxville Family Dental, the health of our patients and staff is our highest priority.
Even before the COVID-19 outbreak or office followed strict infection control guidelines that would have prevented the transmission of the novel coronavirus (or any other virus) to our patients and staff. In an abundance of caution, we have increased the frequency and thoroughness of our sanitizing procedures and we follow safety procedures recommended by the Center for Disease Control, the American Dental Association, and OSHA.
Due to our unwavering commitment to safety, Bronxville Family Dental has incorporated updates and protocols and equipment that we would like to share with our community.
Aerus Beyond Guardian Air Filtration System with ActivePure Technology
Our filtration system removes air particulate, surface particulate, viruses, and minuscule particulates as small as 0.1 microns. The new HEPA filtration system features technology surpassed by none. A multi-port ion generator has an electric current that ionizes the air particles before they pass through the carbon backed HEPA filtration system. Air is then passed across a UV germicidal lamp. These components remove 99.97% of surface and airborne particulate. NASA recognizes the Aerus Beyond Guardian System with ActivePure Air Purification system as the ONLY certified Space Technology that protects air and surfaces 24 hours a day.
Aegis Aerosol Vacustation
This multifunction unit reduces aerosols produced by dental procedures. The vacustation serves as an auxiliary extra oral suction unit as well as a HEPA filtration system. This multi-filtration unit removes up to 99.97% of all airborne particulates and pathogens (down to 0.3 microns), decreasing the potential spread of infections and diseases. Aegis meets United States HEPA filtration requirements and is ideal for a dental health setting.
Zyris Isolite Systems
This chairside tool offer continuous suction throughout dental procedures to eliminate over 90% of aerosols. When compared to the use of regular dental evacuation/ suction systems, Isolite is more effective in reducing the amount of airborne particles, helping to decrease exposure to debris, bacteria, and airborne pathogens for patients, dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants.
