Concerned about your safety and that of your family when visiting your dental office?

Harvard Street Neighborhood Health Center’s Dental Office has invested in a new mobile HEPA/SAS System. Operating through a high-grade air suction, which protects patients from aerosol air droplets – this system reduces the hazards to the patient and dental team as a result of the high-grade air suction mechanism.

As explained by Dr. Mohammad Majeed of HSNHC’s Dental Department, “In June of 2020, we began using this new HEPA/SAS system for our surgical procedures and dental appointments to reduce the hazards of aerosol through high-grade air suction. Our number one goal is to provide patients with a sense of security that makes it easier for them to return to the dentist and to know that their health is our main concern. It’s very important for people to maintain their dental hygiene.”

HSNHC is one of the first health centers in Boston to offer the HEPA/SAS System which will soon be required by the ADA, DPH and CDC in all dental offices. “The great aspect about this machine is that it’s portable which will also allow us to provide Mobile Dental care at each of our operatory. We want everyone to know that we are taking every precaution to keep patients safe and we encourage our patients and others to schedule an appointment.”
