TAMPA BAY, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tampa-area dental patients can now breathe easier. In a significant effort aimed at elevating patient care and safety, Surgically Clean Air Inc.™ (SCA), a leading provider of premium air purification solutions for medical professionals, businesses, and educational institutions, has successfully implemented its cutting-edge Cobalt ceiling-mounted air filtration system at the renowned family practice, Dr. Nick's White and Healthy Dentistry, located in the Tampa area.
Designed to transcend the limitations of conventional air purification systems, Cobalt, the latest addition to SCA's family of ceiling-mounted air purification solutions, is revolutionizing indoor air quality without consuming valuable floor space. Dr. Nick Kavouklas, a distinguished family, cosmetic, and dental surgery practitioner and the proud owner of Dr. Nick's White and Healthy Dentistry, expressed his enthusiasm for this remarkable advancement, stating, "We're proud to provide the highest possible indoor air quality to our patients with the help of Surgically Clean Air."
SCA's commitment to delivering top-tier air purification solutions has earned them a reputation as a trusted partner for healthcare providers, and their collaboration with Dr. Nick's White and Healthy Dentistry exemplifies their dedication to enhancing the healthcare experience. The installation of the Cobalt ceiling-mounted air filtration system signifies a forward-thinking approach to patient care, emphasizing safety, and a commitment to excellence that distinguishes Dr. Nick's White and Healthy Dentistry as a premier dental practice in the Tampa area.
Designed to complete 20 air exchanges per hour (ACH) — even more than the surgery center standard of 15 ACH and far in excess of the CDC’s recommended 6 ACH for buildings — the installed system at Tampa Dental consists of 10 brand-new Cobalt air filtration units. Each Cobalt unit moves an unprecedented amount of air: over 1000 cubic feet per minute at a noise level of less than 50 decibels. When measured by cubic foot of air cleaned at a noise level of 50 dB or less, Cobalt is the least expensive ceiling unit in the industry.
The Cobalt system also operates independently of other HVAC systems, meaning there is no interference or dependency on existing infrastructure or risk of voiding current HVAC warranties. Additionally, Cobalt works automatically by using a proximity sensor to monitor occupancy, cleaning air only when the space is occupied and immediately after use. This allows the H13 HEPA filters to last a minimum of 2 years, making the units easy to maintain and highly energy efficient.
In the healthcare setting, where maintaining optimal air quality is paramount, the installation of SCA's Cobalt system represents a significant leap forward in safeguarding both patients and healthcare professionals. Dr. Kavouklas emphasized the importance of this innovation, especially in environments susceptible to airborne disease transmission: "When it comes to airborne disease transmission, the dental environment is one of the worst. After seeing the system in action, I firmly believe a quality air purification system like SCA’s Cobalt is the gold standard. Every healthcare office should have one for the sake of not only their patients but also doctors and staff."
“We’re gratified to be able to offer Tampa-area dental patients this major sigh of relief,” said SCA CEO Marshal Sterio. “As we exit the Covid-19 pandemic with increased understanding of the dangers of indoor airborne disease transmission, robust air filtration systems will be critical for business owners to protect their customers and employees alike. Cobalt delivers powerful air purification alongside a sleek, space-saving form-factor not to mention energy-saving automation. We’re excited to see the impressive results and we look forward to continuing to improve the indoor air quality of our healthcare offices, schools and workplaces.”
