Upgrades ensure patient safety

NEWPORT — Canyon Way Dental offered HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filters before the pandemic, HEPA filters theoretically able to remove at least 99.97 percent of “dust, pollen, mold, bacteria and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns,” according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

For Brett Hulet, DDS, the care and wellbeing of his patients and staff is paramount. When dental offices were shut down in March due to the pandemic, the office began to prepare for reopening. Taking additional precautions, the office now offers what is called Surgically Clean Air, also the trademarked name of the manufacturer. 

“Our proprietary HEPA-Rx filters meet or exceed the guidelines for general surgery applications. HEPA-Rx filters have been independently tested to remove 99.998 percent of particles at 0.1 microns, and 99.2 percent at 0.0025 microns,” the company states at “We don’t just filter pollutants, we destroy them.”

Explaining that there are six distinct stages of cleaning, which remove particles including odors, gases, mold, allergens and viruses, “we also sterilize the air and re-energize it.” In addition to the Canyon Way Dental office, many professional sports teams and Fortune 500 companies are use the air cleaning and purifying system.

Further extra oral suction and air filtration devices known as dental trees are also used during procedure and cleaning visits. Canyon Way Dental offers the clean sterile air of an operating room in the comfort of a dental office. 

“Our highest priority is always for our patients and staff to feel safe and protected during their time with us,” Hulet said, the new technology adding to patient and staff confidence in their safety. 

“We strive for perfection, and our Pano, Cerec (same-day crown), all digital imaging and now Surgically Clean Air make our technology the most advanced on the coast for all to enjoy,” Hulet elaborated, explaining he and his staff use only the best and most reliable products.

Canyon Way Dental is fully staffed with the same friendly, talented, compassionate faces and a few new ones, as well. The dental office is accepting new patients and is prepared for what might be an overwhelming response, said Hulet.
