Westend Dental Proudly Introduce COVID-Safe Equipment
Our dental team wants to welcome back our patients to receive dental treatments and care! We work hard to ensure the proper protocols are placed to protect our patients while receiving treatments at our office. We have enforced strict sterilization protocols and received formal prevention training for all of our team members.
A pre-screening is required for all patients before their appointments. We will also take temperature checks upon arrival with a touchless infrared thermometer. Masks are mandatory when visiting our office, and there will be a sanitizing station at the door. The safety of our patients and staff is essential to us. That’s why we have introduced a necessary piece of safety equipment in our common area and visitation room: The Defender Extraoral Aerosol Evacuator System.
Defender Extroral Aerosol Evacuator System
This state of the art technology assists in reducing airborne viruses. A three-stage HEPA filtration system coupled with a high-power suction system evacuates bacteria, viruses, dust, and aerosol. The DEFENDER eliminates 99.97% of matter, filtered through UV-C disinfection before it is exhausted.
This system is used chairside to capture the aerosol and is used when a patient is receiving dental treatments. The DEFENDER protects patients and staff to prevent airborne particles from spreading. We are more than happy to answer any questions regarding our COVID-19 safety protocols. Contact us at 204-783-0591 today! We look forward to seeing you at your next appointment!
The GermGuardian Tower Console: Air Purifier with HEPA Filter, Odor Control, and Air Quality Sensor
The GermGuardian HEPA is used to improve the air quality in our office and captures dust, which relieves allergies. An activated carbon filter attacks odors and reduces many VOCs being emitted by cleaning chemicals and other products. It includes an Air Quality Monitor, which is used to detect the number of airborne particles. It also adjusts the speed automatically to create optimum air quality.
An ionizer option is built in the unit, which boosts allergen control. This ionizer also emits negative ions to attract allergens, which form larger particles, making them easier to trap. Contact us today if you have any questions regarding our COVID-19 safety precautions!
