  • High volume evacuation is always used with any procedures involving aerosolization.
  • Proper OSHA hand washing techniques before and after patient contact.

Facility Safety

  • Our ventilation system constantly vents air from the office and replaces it with fresh air from outside.
  • The system has high efficiency filters and Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization units to kill bacteria, viruses and mold spores in the air.
  • It reduces VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) and airborne particles as well.
