Back in 2003, the technology behind Surgically Clean Air was developed as a rapid response for the next SARS-like outbreak. Now in 2020, SCA is proud to be on the front line of infection control in Michigan. The 50 watts of germicidal UVC in a SCA unit denatures viruses by rupturing the DNA strand. And that’s only one of the 6 stages of filtration provided by the units.
Independent studies have established that particulate matter and aerosolized liquids can pose health hazards to the dental team, and potentially to patients, when inhaled. Until now, the dental team’s primary defense against these airborne chemical, bacterial, and blood-borne hazards has been the use of masks, pre-procedural mouth rinses and high-volume evacuator tips during procedures. Now, there is an air purification system that uses four stages of filtration to capture particulate matter and two stages to kill volatile organic compounds, bacteria, and viral infectious agents while rejuvenating the air. Surgically Clean Air produces these air purification devices, which can be configured to meet the needs of any dental practice. The result is noticeably cleaner, fresher air that is enjoyed by dental team members, and noticed by patients.
There are several sizes of Surgically Clean Air machines. The number of air purifiers a practice requires depends on its size and layout. Payment plans are available and the cost of replacement media is less than $300 a year for an average office of four operatories. Additionally, your investment in this equipment qualifies for a Section 179 tax deduction.
