In-Office Air Quality Contamination: What You Don't Know WILL Harm You
By Mark H.E. Lin, BSc, DDS, MSc (Prostho), FRCD(C) | June 30, 2017
This is an article to alert you to a silent but insidious problem in the dental profession, one that IS harmful to you, your entire team, your patients, and your family members.

Microbial air pollution is a health hazard and this is where Air Purifiers Systems (APS) can play a role in significantly reducing the transmittable bio-aerosols. In the dental office environment, the most practical and convenient solution is to have stand-alone air filter systems which clean by constantly drawing out polluted indoor air and exhausting clean filtered air into the room.
