New HEPA Filter at Enlighten Dental Care

At Enlighten Dental Care, the health and well-being of our patients and team members is our top priority. While the Stay-At-Home order was in place, we explored how we could better serve our patients in all areas of our practice.

One enhancement we have made is the addition of a Pressurized Room with a HEPA filter, similar to those found in hospital settings. We chose to invest money in a hospital grade ICU isolation room equivalent was the best thing we could do for our patients right now.

The HEPA filter cleans recirculated air, as well as the supply/fresh air coming into the room with equal or slightly positive pressure.

In addition to our one HEPA room for aerosolizing procedures, we upgraded both commercial air filters for our space to the highest MEVA (filtering capacity) for the existing HVAC systems.

We continue to read the science and research in order to stay current with discoveries about COVID-19 transmissibility. If you have any questions about this or any of our other procedures, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We are looking forward to seeing our current patients again soon, and we are accepting new ones!
