A Charlotte dental office is doing its part to combat the spread of COVID-19 by installing a new technology that will help keep their team and patients safe. Dental Wellness of Charlotte has installed the Safe-T-Shield which they say will drastically increase the safety measures in their office to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Dr. Sergei Shirman, the dentist and practice owner, was among the first dentists to install such technology.
The Safe-T-Shield uses Hepa and UV filtration system, which works to remove and disinfect particles escaping from a patient’s mouth. Dr. Shirman said whatever comes out of the patient’s mouth is less likely to come in contact with the doctor or his staff.
“I definitely wanted to come up with something safe and secure for everyone that comes to the practice,” Shirman said.
Design Ergonomics is the manufacturer of the Safe-T-Shield. They said the device creates a broad negative pressure zone directly above the oral cavity, which provides more powerful evacuation of patient exhalation than single point oral suction devices.
“It makes me feel like I am establishing a gold standard of safety within the community and probably in the entire United States,” Shriman said.
Dr. Shirman states their mission is to help their patients and team members to feel as safe as possible when visiting Dental Wellness of Charlotte, and they plan on continuing to invest in extra safety precautions in their office. Many patients have already expressed how grateful they are for their dentist to be taking such measures.
