Why Use UV Light Disinfectant?

Hospitals have long used UV light disinfectant techniques to combat viruses and bacteria, particularly drug-resistant superbugs. This same technology may be used to successfully mitigate harmful bugs in your Chesterfield, MO dental office.  

How Does It Work?

The Ultraviolet C (UVC) light is the specific wavelength of light most beneficial for disinfecting the dental treatment space. It allows the germicidal ultraviolet technology to reach airborne and surface particles that can be missed by traditional surface spray barrier techniques and cleaners. 

How Effective Is UVC Light in the Dental Office?

UV sanitizing devices claim to kill 99.9% of surface and airborne bacteria. The success of UVC lights is in addition to our dental office’s continued use of strict disinfectants and sterilization protocols!

Where Else Are Light Disinfectant Techniques Used?

Your Chesterfield, MO dentist uses UVC light in our dental office. But it is also used in retail spaces, schools, and office spaces. Additional places include airplanes, airports, subways, and vehicles like ambulances, buses, and police cars.

Why Clarkson Dental Group Uses UVC?

Although we maintain rigorous sterilization protocols that meet or exceed industry standards, we feel the addition of UVC light disinfectant allows us to provide the safest environment for our patients and our team. 

As caregivers in the Chesterfield dental community, we prioritize the health and care of every patient. Therefore, providing an optimal environment to support this vision is critical to our patient's overall dental experience.
