Preventing the spread of infection to patients undergoing routine health care procedures is a growing concern among health professionals. A recent study done by the University of Leeds determined that infectious organisms can ride around on building air currents in any health care facility that takes care of healthy as well as sick patients. Disinfecting those organisms, while still in the air, is the best first line of defense against their spread. According to one study 1.7 million people each year acquire an infection from a health care facility.

The Kid’s Dental Place, Inc., has installed around the clock ultraviolet air purification units in their ceiling panels to help provide a high level of infection protection for their patients.
