The safety innovations that we have made are garnering praise from several dental industry thought leaders across the nation, one of which is DeWitt Wilkerson, DMD. Dr Wilkerson is a nationally-known lecturer and one of my chief mentors at the
Dawson Academy for Advanced Dental Studies in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Early on during the pandemic of 2020, Dr Bain authored the Covid-19 Safe Dentistry Field Guide which describes the game-changer equipment & ideas that we have put into practice.
Chief among the game-changer equipment innovations are our vacuum scavengers with intake-tubing that can be placed 6-8 inches from the mouth at the origin of oral aerosol emissions. These aerosols could possibly contain mercury-vapor,
bacteria, and viruses including Covid-19. We grab those aerosols before they start floating around the room and put them through HEPA filters rated for viruses at 0.3 microns.
