As you know by now, because your overall health and safety is our utmost priority, we are closely following every safety and infection control procedure recommended by the ADA and CDC. However, going way beyond these recommendations, in July we installed 2 Jade Surgically Clean Air Filtration Systems. Our office size would require only one Jade unit to kill viruses and bacteria 6 times an hour, but we are so committed to you that we have installed 2 units, one in front of each dental chair. You can be assured that our air is always the safest because we leave the systems on 24/7.

The Jade is patented and industry-leading and is the only air purification system that incorporates 6 different technologies which include, Hydroxl, UV and electronic cell catalytics, and Hepa-RX. The Jade is measured and peer-reviewed to eliminate viruses less than 0.1 microns (the corona virus is measured at .125 microns) and is tested globally with over 70,000 units installed worldwide.

With our warmest wishes for your health and safety, we look forward to seeing you soon and continuing to keep you as healthy as possible.
